You’ll find historical spots, spectacular views, a beautiful waterfall, a small chapel and unusual trees in this dense, tropical national park, probably best explored by jeep tour.

A great area of natural beauty & waterfall to walk about in & relax. Away from the maddling crowds of the beaches, city and noise you will find peace & a feeling of serenity here as a change from the tourist hot spots.

Visited the Tijuca Rainforest with a birdguide - it is a great place to go but unfortunately for us is did rain very heavily for most of our time there. Check the weather before you go.

Loved it! Some of the views were just as impressive as from Christ the redeemer or sugarloaf. Nice place to spend some time when in Rio.

Hiked pedra de GAvea you have to enter park to do so. I felt safe even thoe I've read reviews of people saying it might be dangerous. Take bug spray and sunblock as it gets hot.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.
