  • With our guide to the NATURAL agency RIO, a hike of 1 h 30, even for novices, to climb up to the morro feasible. Exceptional view, worth visiting. The descent is done through the Vidigal favela, secure.

  • Morro Dois Irmãos is one of the postcards of the wonderful city and an icon of the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema. There is a medium difficulty trail that leads to the Summit. I don't recommend doing the track without the company of an expert guide. Visual upstairs is gorgeous and totally worth the effort.

  • Wow. Such an amazing place. The hike itself is steep but doable. It doesn't help that the sun is extra hot in Rio. So pack up 2bottles of water and some fruit to enjoy once you are at the top. The view is worth a million bucks.
  • It's hard to find a similar landscape. Really outstanding. If you like hiking, I definitely recommend! It takes usually around 40-60 minutes to get to the top (easy/medium difficulty), starting from the football court. To get to the football court, You better get a ride on a motorcycle-taxi or van from the entrance of the Vidigal community.
  • About one hour hike to the top of the mountains totally worth it. Better go in the morning, gets very hot.
  • The place is really nice. We went for a walk a Saturday mornings and we got an amazing view of part of Rio, and also we were able to see some wild animals and some nature just at a walking distance from the city. It is very surprising that we were the only ones there, in such a beautiful park a Sunday morning. It is more than ideal for a run or a walk.
  • Stunning views at the top of this awesome hike (about one hour up)
