Rio Adventures offers a Tree Canopy Tour in Rio de Janeiro, right inside the Tijuca Forest. The circuit of suspended steel cables is an adventure high rope course , with 360º views of hillside, forest, beaches and fine residences. It has 30 + obstacles, and features over 1 kilometer of cables, with 3 zip lines, a variety of swings (log, pendulum, Tarzan, tunnels), all divided in 2 levels of difficulty.
The obstacles vary from 15ft (5m) to 100ft (35m) in length and are suspended at heights ranging from 30ft (10m) to 90ft (30m). Some upper-arm strength combine with good balance are the keys to complete the whole course without using your extra batteries. Unlike many tree canopy courses, we provide a combination of fun and challenge as you go through all of its obstacles. When doing the zip-slides for example, you are hanging on a bar, rather than sitting comfortably in a harness.
It is a fantastic canopy course, designed for testing your strength, agility, courage, balance, endurance, and fear of heights. It is intellectually exciting and physically challenging, done in a beautiful environment. Its quite normal to get a few “battle scars ” from fighting gravity and rubbing against the steel cables, so this course is surely not for the fragile ones !! And since it is in the jungle, you may encounter wild animals at the tree tops, like monkeys and toucans . Come zip lining in Rio !
