Early Bird Sunrise at Pedra do Telegrafo

Private Experience


In this Early Bird Experience we will avoid the long lines, which can be up to 3 hours long wait, at the famous Pedra do Telegrafo, so you can take your time at the rock and hopefully get amazing photos. From the rock, on clear days, you have an amazing sunset in the horizon, and we will help you with the most recommended poses.

We will pick you up at Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon or Barra da Tijuca at 04:00am, in a private and comfortable car, and along will be a Rio Official Certified Local Guide who has much experience hiking in the area we will visit.

We arrive at the start of the trail, in the natural reserve area called Barra de Guaratiba/Grumari, around 4am. Here we will distribute flash lights and start the hike, which will take about one hour until we get to Pedra do Telegrafo. The hike is mostly easy with some parts of moderate difficulty.

On the way back we can also make a 30 minutes stop for swimming, if you want, at one of 2 amazing beaches in the area; either at Prainha Beach or Grumari Beach. You will drop you off again at your accommodations around 8-9am.

Stop One – Pedra do Telegrafo

Located in the Pedra Branca State Park, Pedra do Telégrafo (elevation of 350 meters) is at the top of Guaratiba Hill and it takes about an hour to reach the summit. As we arrive here around 5am we should beat the crowds and be able to take our time to marvel at the sunset, with the wild beaches in the foreground.

There are several viewpoints along the way, such as the large rock called Pedra da Bigorna, from where you can marvel at the views of the Restinga da Marambaia sandbank and can on clear days see as far as Ilha Grande.

Stop Two – Grumari or Prainha Beach

On the way back we can stop, if you want, to relax and swim at Grumari or Prainha beach for around 30 minutes.

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!
