Day 2

RIO DE JANEIRO

Half Day Tour with Corcovado

This morning our host will meet you in the lobby to take you to a sight considered one of the world’s most famous tour attractions in the world the statue of Christ the Redeemer, with its open arms blessing the whole city of Rio de Janeiro, is exquisitely positioned on top of the 710m high Corcovado (hunchback) Hill. Made of concrete and soapstone, measuring 37 meters high and weighing 1.145 tons, the statue was inaugurated in 1931 and built with donations by the Catholic Church. A superb view of the whole city can be enjoyed from its open terraces, including the city centre and the beaches of the southern neighborhoods such as Copacabana, Ipanema and the Lagoon. It is also possible to see the Sugar Loaf hill at the entrance of Guanabara Bay, the whole city of Niterói, as well as a huge portion of the northern part of the city and its suburbs. From the top you can admire the fantastic blend of gorgeous beaches being washed by deep blue waters, high mountains that bound the landscape, thick forests and urban areas all together and connected. Once in Rio, it is easy to understand why Brazilians say that it took God seven days to create the whole world and five of them were spent only working in Rio!

The city does not only provide breathtaking views from above. Once you are back in the city streets you will be impressed by the huge portion of tropical rain forest inside its own urban area. The Tijuca forest is just a few minutes away from densely populated areas and one of its hills holds the famous Corcovado Mountain (where the Christ is located). Once there you will find roads and tracks passing through a dense green mass of trees and tropical plants. At its center, you can get close to an impressive waterfall, as well as walk along rivers and lakes. Butterflies, tropical birds and small animals can also be spotted as you move.

The beaches in Rio are part of the most popular attractions that the city can offer. Although it is a little far from the centre, Barra da Tijuca is one of Rio’s favorite beaches. This beach is known for its clean waters and beautiful young people who frequent it. It is also notorious for being a good choice for leisure and relaxation. One of the most attractive points in Barra beach is around a restaurant-kiosk called Pepê. Young folk, artists, famous sportsmen and curious people stay in the area close to the restaurant, where you can also taste fantastic snacks and sandwiches, all made with natural ingredients. In our tour we are going to have a stop at Pepêkiosk to try the famous Brazilian juice "açai", made from the berry with the same name, which is considered to be a powerful antioxidant.

Surrounded by expensive and classy apartments and a fancy golf course, lies São Conrado beach. The landscape is beautiful and the view of the surrounding hills, Gávea Rock, in particular, is just amazing. It is in São Conrado that you will find Rocinha, an impressive slum with more than 100.000 inhabitants. The suburb has also become very popular as it is the starting point (the Gávea Rock) and the landing area (the Praia do Pepino) for Rio’s famous hang gliding flights. The tour takes you from São Conrado beach to Leblon beach by the beautiful and scenic Niemeyer Avenue that runs between the Dois Irmãos Mountain and the sea. We will also stop by the Leblon belvedere for beautifull pictures of Leblon and Ipanema Beaches.
