Enjoy this 8-hour tour in Pedra da Gávea. The hike to the summit stands at 842m/2763ft above sea level. The ascent takes around 2.5-hourss. Besides a steep but short hand-climbing (15m / 49ft) and a few walks on the edge of precipices, there is nothing to fear. It’s all perfectly safe and doable by anyone. From up there, the view of Tijuca Forest, Pedra Bonita, Rocinha favela, one of the world’s biggest ghettos, São Conrado beach, Cristo Redentor, Sugar Loaf, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and Barra da Tijuca is simply wonderful.
