We start the hike at 8 am when the entrance to the trail opens. The trail passes through the Atlantic Forest, a beautiful and shaded natural environment rich in diverse fauna and flora. It is a steep hike, with many natural obstacles and challenges along the way!

After completing about two-thirds of the hike, we arrive at a 30-meter “scramble” - a steep, rocky section called Carrasqueira where we use a rope and other rock climbing equipment to get to the top safely. The trail exits the heavily forested area at this point and the views open up! After another 20 minutes of hiking, we arrive at Gavea’s incredible summit - an impressive plateau offering 360-degree views of Rio de Janeiro and its spectacular landscape

After enjoying some time at the summit and taking a lot of pictures, we begin our hike back along the same trail used to summit. We descend Carrasqueira using a rope and a technique similar to rappel, allowing us to pass the section with safety and confidence

Although the trail is strenuous, prior hiking or rock climbing experience is not required. Our guides lead at a pace that is suitable for all participants and give lots of hiking and climbing tips along the way!
