pedra da gávea hike

Private Tour

a true adventure hike

First of all, to hike Pedra da Gávea is not for everyone, but whoever accomplishes will feel a great sense of having done something that few Cariocas ( locals ) have even tried. You should be fit and not be afraid of heights, because the way up sometimes is steep as can be seen on this photo. At the steepest part, called “O Parede”, which means the wall, we will have the support of a local fireman who will be waiting for us with climbing ropes for us to use along with his guidance. On the way up and once up, enjoy the most spectacular views over Barra da Tijuca & Rio de Janeiro, you will awe and your Instagram will go wild.

Bring water and shoes with good grip.

How does it work:

Our experienced guide gets you at your hotel/hostel with an appropriate veicule depending on the size of your group. The drive to the start of the trail takes about 20 minutes ( with no traffic ) from Ipanema/Copacabana. The hike up to get to the “wall” will take about 2 hours, stopping for photos along the way. Once at the “wall” the local fireman will be waiting for us and with his help and rope we will clime the steepest part. Another 30 minutes and we are up to se the most spectacular natural beauty that is the Marvellous City. The same way we came up we will also go down, and after the guide will return you back to your hotel/hostel.

what do our customers say about us?

We used Rio Love Story to organize transportation, tours and hotel for our group, 28 people.
With large group It is always difficult to find something everyone like. Rio Love Story organised a great tour in Rio everyone liked on short notice. Great knowledge of Rio!! He arranged good tickets to a soccer match with transportation, recommended!
He also organised transport on short notice during our stay around in Rio.
If you need help to organize your tour I would recommend you to give Rio Love Story a call!!! I will definitely use them again!

I would whole heartedly recommend this AMAZING 5 Star Tour ⭐️ The guide Tavi was sooooooo knowledgable, kind, attentive to our needs & made us feel so welcome. The History of Rio flowed with verve & fascinating facts. The vehicle was very comfortable, air conned & spacious. Perfect for our tour. Our friends wheelchair fitted well in the boot. The guided tours of the five fantastic locations were superb. Get to Rio, book Tavi & have the best tour, tailor made just for you ❤️
Peter / England

Tavi is knowledgeable, personable, and made our first day (and first time; 7 of us!) in Rio an unforgettable experience!

I would not hesitate to book a tour with him next time I’m in Rio. If you’re looking for someone who knows and loves the city and can educate you while still having fun, Tavi is your guy!
