What we’ll do

This ride is the best introduction of Rio, as we go to six different neighbourhoods. We're going to see the main post cars of the city, with stunning views. We begin looking at Dois Irmãos Hill, the Arpoador rocks, Copacabana beach, Flamengo Park, were we can have a nice view of Sugar Loaf and take a lot of pictures. We're going to make a stop in one of our favorite places to taste local food,…

What else you should know

It's very important to put sunblock and drink a lot of water during the ride. The sun in Rio is really strong, be prepared for the heat. If it's raining the ride can be moved for another day and we're going to check the weather 24h in advance.

Where you'll be

We begin the ride looking at the stunning view of the Two Brothers Hill (Morro Dois Irmãos), on Arpoador. Then we go to the famous Copacabana Beach, where I tell a little bit of the story of the neighbourhood. The next stop, Botafogo Beach, has the most wonderful view of Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer. As we arrive on Flamengo Park, you're going to feel inside a tropical urban jungle, with a lot of ancient trees and beautiful views. We make a stop to taste the best açaí in town. If you want other thing, there're other specialities from Amazon. The last stop is Downtown, the historical and business center of Rio. There, we go 'till Mauá Square, one of the most visited sites of the city, with the beautiful Museum of Tomorow, Museum of Rio, Olympic Boulevard and Little Africa.
