“Discover the path to happiness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

If you thought Rio was beautiful sitting on the beach, wait until you visit the top of the two brothers mountain..it is breathtaking!!
Easy+ level trail of about 1 hour will take you to the peak of the mountain. on the way to the top you will enjoy some beautiful spots that overlook "Rocinha" - the most populated favela in Rio and the surrounding neighborhood of Sao Conrrado.
To get to the beginning of the trail you first need to get to the top of the Favela Vidigal, to do that get a moto-taxi from the bottom. this would cost you 5BRL. Just say the word "Trilha" and the guy will know where to go. The favela is very safe so no worries about that.

Tips:
1. How to get to Vidigal: If you are coming using the metro, buy the integrated Metro+Buss ticket called "integração Barra Express", with that, using the metro you will get off at Ipanema General Osario, leave the station following the signs and take the Metro buss called Barra Express (5BRL). ask the buss driver to get off at Vidigal.
2. Bring water and snacks - there are no venders on the trail.
3. Go early morning or past midday to avoid the heat.
4. To get down you can find the motor-taxi at one of the streets below - just wait for one to pass.
5. There is a small kiosk on the way coming down that sell really nice Acai! it is exactly what you want after a good hike!

Hope this has been helpful!

“Iconic sunset view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Grab a cold coconut, sit at Arpoador beach and watch a stunning sunset. You can easily climb it if you are in good shape.

“Best sunset in Rio.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Needs no more explanation. Hang out in Arpoador and just let it happen. Stay for the after show when the clouds are lit with surreal colors after the sun has disappeared.

If you go to Rio you must do this morro! The view on top is amazing, worth all the way up to the top. Is hard but worth every step!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Its so beautiful. And its in Vidigal. The people from the favela do Vidigal are very nice. You can also have lunch at Bar LacoBaco after the hike. Its in the entrance of the Favela. And also to refresh, you can have an Açaí around there too. The hiking is medium in difficulty I would say, but its definitly worth it. When you arrive in Vidigal get the Kombi or the mototaxi to the last stop and you'll be close to the entrance for the hike!
