Our Bike Tour in Rio de Janeiro is one of the best ( and greenest) ways to get to know the city, giving you a closer approach to its astonishing landscape and to its people, without harming the environment.
The meeting point is in Gávea neighborhood . From there, we go by van to the beginning of our route inside the Tijuca Forest, at the Chinese View. From there we go up to the Emperor`s Table, for about 1 km, then a nice descent for about 4.5 km to Alto da Boa Vista.
Once there, we will ride through the sector A of the Tijuca Forest National Park, visiting the Taunay Falls, the Visitor Center and the Solitude Dam . After that, we return the same way, back to Chinese View. Once there again, we go a little further down to the Botanical Garden, on a 5.5 km descent, the same one used during the Olympics in Rio, back in 2016.
Once at the Botanical Gardens, the tour continues, passing by Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Ipanema Beach and finally ending on Arpoador Beach.
