Amazing hiking tours with very small groups (up to 6 people) taking you to places where the traditional tours don't go. Get to see spectacular views from the highest peaks of the city, hike through the rainforests of Rio and more than nature and wildlife, get deep inside our history and culture with our very knowledgeable tour guides. Tijuca Rainorest, Corcovado and Christ statue, and the most Wild Beaches of Rio are featured in our tours. Discover Rio through nature and get 'jungled'!

We opted for the Tijuca adventure trail, expertly guided by Tito and Nathalia. We started the adventure with a scenic waterfall, quick history of Brazil followed by the long jungle trail. Very enjoyable and some unique viewpoints, some literally on cliff edge overlooking Rio. Even...More

We hiked with Jungle Me two years ago and enjoyed it so much that we returned for another adventure. In spite of the rain our guide Natalie was outstanding. She was professional, outgoing and knowledgable. If you enjoy the great outdoors this is a must.
