What you'll do

Our meeting point will be in front of Praia Vermelha beach. We will start by Claudio Coutinho track, a 30 minutes walk trail. We'll go until the end of the track to see the most important spots and after all, we will take Morro da Urca trail. An easy trail, 40 minutes walking and 220 meters high. When we get to the top of the mountain we have an awesome view of Pão de Açúcar and many other city attractions. With a panoramic view of many geological spots you will fall in love with Rio de Janeiro and take incredible shots in this unforgettable experience!

I'm a Geologist graduated by Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and I'm also part of Rio Geotour team, the first company specialized in geotourism (geological tours) in Rio de Janeiro and one of the pioneers in Brazil. I has always been a nature lover and that's why I decided to share my geological knowledge about this wonderful city. Among the rocks and breathing-taking trails, I introduce a bit of geological history of visited places, joining knowledge and fun!
