  • The trail is very steep! You can choose to go to the top of the Pedra da Gávea, where the most difficult part of the trail is the carrasqueira. Or turn towards the waterfall, continue the trail and reach heaven's throat. The two views are amazing. The track lasts between 2 and 3 hours, depends on your pace. It is important to take a few thing, all weigh in time of the walk. Don't forget water and snacks to replenish your energy!

  • One of the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro. Fitness is necessary and enough available. Made in 2 couples and women did not have the courage to face the carrasqueira ... is virtually an escalation, really difficult even for those accustomed to hiking. Are 2.6 km ascent, with a lot of stone and steps. I'm trailrun runner, used to face 12 km and still felt the heat on rise ... the Guide recommended 1.5 litres of water per lead person, but I thought it was overkill.. with 1 litre for me..

  • Traditional carioca track, with one of the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro. Physical fitness is required and knowledge of climbing, because the "carrasqueira" is a climbing route. Look for guides and climbing equipment-enabled.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
