Great day out kayaking. Good kayaks, weather, and waves. Had a great time. Daniel, the kayak man picked me up from the hotel and dropped me off. The best thing to do in Rio. Highly recommend it!

We did a climb of the sugarloaf, which proved to be a very nice experience. The booking was easy, all questions were promptly answered. The hike is strenous and the rock climbing section might, for some people require some fear Management since it is challenging, even though we are used to extensive hiking but not rock climbing. Our guid, however... More

I and my wife, both 58 years old, had a fantastic trip to Sugarloaf. The "ascent" had a really good mix of regular walking on good paths, easy climbing on a steep granite section and a shorter passage of slightly higher degree of difficulty. We were accompanied by local guide Daniel from Rio National Ecotourism, a very charming and competent... More
