Took a brilliant guided trip up the Coringa route with Victor. Flavio was excellent at working out which would be the best route for my ability (lots of indoor bouldering experience, infrequent outdoor trips).
The route is great fun and we saw monkeys swinging through the treetops around us.
I'd highly recommend for any climbers who are visiting Rio - it's definitely one to tick off the list. Just make sure you bring mosquito repellent, and try and do it at the beginning of your trip in case you have to postpone because of weather.

Climbed the sugarloaf a couple of days ago. Flavio was an excellent guide. He was very responsive through the booking process, answering all of my questions regarding payment, climbs, safety, and covid related. He was very clear and everything happened as planned. The climb was fantastic. Flavio was at the meeting point on time, and he took us through the hike and then Via dos italianos explaining not only the climbing aspects but also giving us quick notes on the nature around us, the different areas of the city, culture, etc.
I’m very pleased with the guiding service, it was excellent and Flavio was great. He also took some fantastic pictures in the right times. Highly recommended.

Climbing the Sugar Loaf (Via dos Italianos) with Companhia da Escalada was great. The guide, Gabriel was super experienced of the route and gave me useful beta so I succeeded in climbing the route. Cyntia, the company manager was very approachable and thoughful in helped me plan a few climbs that were up to my skills and experience. Easy to schedule a climb and communicate. Will definitely climb with them next time Im in Rio!

We were a family of four climbing up Sugarloaf on the beginner’s course. We had Raoni as our instructor, and we were really happy with him. A super experience and one of the most fun activity we did in Rio. I will strongly recommend it as the top activities to do in Rio.

Such an amazing experience! Our guide Victor was incredible, very experienced and so friendly and fun to be around. I got quite nervous during some of the climbing and Victor was very encouraging and gave me clear directions on how to do the climb. It really helped me overcome my nerves. The views during this climb were breathtaking. And sunset at Sugarloaf mountain was definitely the highlight of our trip to Rio.

My husband and I had a great time climbing with Flavio. He guided us up Sugarloaf - Coringa route. He was very safe and communicative the whole time. We had so much fun and loved the view from the top! Plus he carried all our gear, ropes, etc which always makes things easier. :) I would recommend him to anyone looking to climb in Brazil. His English was very good also.

We had a great hike with some climbing (rope and harness) guided by Flavio. We totally enjoyed the hike, views and insights into flora and fauna Flavio gave us. We felt very safe and secure at all times. We recommend doing this and other climbing tours companhia da escalada offers. The prices are fair and communication in fluent English is fast and reliable. Thanks again!

I was really excited to find our that it was possible to climb Pão de Açúcar, rather than taking the cable car. We went on the easy Costão trail, which is mostly hiking up the hill, with rock climbing on a short part of the ascent. The views are stunning along the way! Even though this climb is marketed for the first-timers, it is a good idea to have tried rock climbing in a gym at least once, so that you understand what you are signing up for. It is also important to wear running shoes with a good grip. Our guide, Victor, is a terrific guy, he is an expert climbing guide and made sure that the climb went smoothly. Unforgettable experience!
