Rio de Janeiro is a wonderful city. In fact, it`s one of the most beautiful and fun cities on earth. Carnival, breathtaking beaches, forests, magnificent architecture, excellent restaurants and night life are here, waiting to be enjoyed.
And within a 2 hour drive from the city, around the state of Rio de Janeiro, customers can also choose from many different options of adventures, such as rafting, scuba diving or exciting side trips to Ilha Grande or Serra dos Orgãos for example.
But besides all that, what most people don`t realize, is that the city has a great potential when it comes to outdoor activities. And instead of just visiting it, tourists can interact with nature, whether it`s hiking, climbing, zip lining in Tijuca Forest or hang gliding.
So what can we say about Rio Adventures ?
Well, it is hard to talk about yourself without sounding self promoting so here is what we can say about ourselves: we are an adventure tour operator based in Rio de Janeiro, that has been around since 2001, managed by a team of “locals” who know exactly what travelers and outdoor enthusiasts are looking, when coming to Rio.
We are focused in outdoor activities, adventure sports and ecotourism, but we also provide the regular and most common tours, to places such as Sugar Loaf, Corcovado and other tour spots.
It is just a matter of choice. You may choose to go up to Sugar Loaf by cable car, no problem in that, we will surely take you up there.
But we will be very pleased if you decide to get up there by walking, or even rock climbing. Our philosophy – which really defines us for what we are as a company and who we are as employees – is to offer you a different approach, a particular way to see our city, through our eyes. Once we have accomplished that, we will consider our mission done.
We provide online booking, and use Paypal, to make your life a little easier. We do not require credit card information nor confirm bookings over the phone. Everything is done through the website. We do answer calls and respond to questions over the phone, e-mail and also via whatsapp, but bookings are always made via website.
Remainder is always paid in cash to the guide in charge, at the start of the tour. Check our Terms and Conditions for all detailed info. Unlike many tour operators, we only require a 20% to 50% deposit, according to the tour
