About your host

My name is Thiago Helt, and I am born and bred in Rio de Janeiro. I love my city and the city life, but what I love even more is living in the middle of a huge rainforest. Together with my Danish wife Fefe I wanna show you all the secrets of my city, and bring you to the places where I go with my friends and family. Several days a week we camp in the rainforest or on the beach, and I have done so…

Where you'll be

First we do a light hike to Vista Chinesa, a viewpoint built as a tribute to China in the beginning of XX, where you will see the whole city in a panoramic view. We will then go down to Horto, a stunning lake in the middle of the rainforest, with freshwater, big rocks, and waterfalls, where we can enjoy our snacks, bathe and explore the nature. From here we do an easy climb up behind the lake and visit the secret magical waterfalls.
