What to expect

The city of Rio de Janeiro is home to secrets that not even the Carioca knows himself. The Lagoon Complex of Barra da Tijuca is one of those treasures tucked into one of the hottest areas of the city. Affectionately known by locals as "Pantanal Carioca" surprises to all with its fauna and flora of great beauty and diversity. You have a multitude of ways of getting to know the area. You can either take a ride through the canals and discover the real Pantanal Carioca, during the day or at sunset. At night you will go to the restaurants in the area and then back to the docks of your choosing.

Please note that the Pantanal Carioca and the Sunset Cruise have options with both transportation and without transportation. It departs from several docks along the canal.

The tour has three variations to choose from:

  • Pantanal Carioca: An unforgettable ride through the Lagoon Complex of Barra da Tijuca.
  • Sunset Cruise: The Pantanal seen in a very special time of day.
  • Pantanal Carioca with lunch: Enjoy the tour with a delicious lunch or dinner option with 2 starters (pastries), 2 drinks (Caipirinha or juice) and main course (Stew, Seafood or Picanha)

For all these options, you can add the transportation for an additional cost.
