What to expect

The Gavea Rock hiking is one of the most startling and rewarding tours in Rio. The summit stands at 842m (2763ft) above sea level. The ascent takes around two and a half hours and, once close to the top, you will probably feel butterflies. Besides a steep but short scramble of 15m (49ft) and a few walks on the edge of precipices, there is nothing to fear. It’s all perfectly safe and doable by people of various levels of physical fitness. From the top, the views of Tijuca Forest, Pedra Bonita, Rocinha favela, São Conrado beach, Cristo Redentor, Sugar Loaf, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and Barra da Tijuca are truly stunning.
