Pedra Bonita, Rio de Janeiro
(4.9/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the vistas and some fresh air at Pedra Bonita, a popular spot in Tijuca National Park, sandwiched between Pedra de Gavea hills and Sao Conrado and Tijuca. Follow a 1.5 km (1 mi) uphill trail for about 40 minutes; once at the top, you'll take in some of the most privileged views of Rio de Janeiro. Towering above Tijuca Park's forest at 696 m (2,283 ft), this spot draws scores of hang gliders. Head to the top of the gliding ramp for a restroom and a small bar. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Rio de Janeiro holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pedra Bonita and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
