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 trail requires effort, and 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 60-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, to relax, enjoy the views, get some refreshments and snacks, before we finish the experience. Transport back to the meeting point is done by Uber, provided by me. OBS: Due to overcrowding at Telégrafo Rock it´s importante to start early in order to avoid massive cues to do the “famous” Picture.
