What you'll do

We will meet at the metro station and drive for 50 min to Guaratiba neighborhood where our hike begins. We will hike uphill for one-hour from Guaratiba to one of the most stunning views in Rio from Telegrafo Rock.
The view along the trail is amazing—you will discover islands, long costal views with mountains, the canals and mangroves around the Restinga da Marambaia, and the richness of our green forest.
The hike takes only 45 minutes and the trail requires a bit of effort if you are not used to hike, some parts are a little steep, but there are no great difficulties. Once we reach this breathtaking viewpoint, we will stay for up to 1 hour allowing time to take in the spectacular peak, relax, take pictures and just enjoy the views.
Then we will begin our 50-minute descent back to Guaratiba village.
To finish the experience we will stop at the hidden Prainha Beach for 1 hour with the oportunity to jump in the ocean, relax, visit the "secret pool", get some refreshments and snacks, before we finish the experience.
Transport back to the meeting point may be done by Uber, provided by me.
OBS: Due to overcrowding at Telégrafo Rock it´s important to start early in order to avoid massive cues to do the “famous” Picture.
It will be a day to remember!!

My wife and I truly enjoyed our experience with Alessandra. She was an exceptional hostess, everything from picking us up and dropping us off at our hotel to the sharing of her intimate knowledge of Rio and Brazil. Alessandra truly made this a personal and rewarding experience with her welcoming and accommodating approach to this experience. We would highly recommend this experience to other travelers to Rio.
