Itinerary

Between almost 3 hours of steep walking, rocks, roots and simple climbing through Carrasqueira or Garganta do Céu, we reach the top of the largest seaside monolith in the world. It is 842 meters above sea level that makes us taller than Christ the Redeemer himself, also in Tijuca National Park.

Considered the most challenging trail in Rio de Janeiro, Pedra da Gávea has its charms and its legends. We invite you to live the best and most intense experience of your life with trails in the Marvelous City!
