Parque Nacional & Floresta da Tijuca
The best place to visit to get an idea of what Rio once looked like, with over 46 square miles of tropical rain forest, walking trails, stunning views of the city, waterfalls, creeks and wonderfully varied greenery. This is the largest urban reserve in the world and it only takes about 20 minutes to immerse yourself in nature. Serious hikers can climb to the 3320 feet summit of Pico da Tijuca, while others can simply enjoy the 115 feet waterfall, Cascatinha de Taunay, at the Alto da Boa Vista.

it is unbelievable to experience the Floresta da tijuca. Lodged smack in the middle of one of the largest cities of the world, the Floresta da Tijuca is home to an abundance of flora and fauna you just would not expect virtually in a city. The forest offerest trails and hikes with beautiful panoramic views of Rio as rewards.
