6 Best Hikes Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro may be famous for it’s beaches, but it’s so much more than that- the city is also home to the Tijuca National Forest, the world’s largest urban forest full of hiking trails, breathtaking views and endless rainforest terrain to keep you busy off the beach.

  1. Really nice post. The Pedra do Telegrafo is one of the stunning views of Rio de Janeiro. I recommend to visit very early during the week to scape of the crowds on the weekends and high season (November to March)
