All reviews moto taxi vidigal favela football field two brothers an adventure decent shape sheraton hotel favorite hike overlooking ipanema beach starting point jungle trek great hike sao conrado amazing views degrees view felt very safe never felt unsafe
Despite some of the stories due to it being in a favela, I always wanted to do this hike.
As suggested from reading reviews/websites I got to the entrance of Vigidal and asked one of the guys at the moped-taxi rank, that you'll see, to...More
Overall I preferred vertical Rio and sugarloaf... but the views were amazing and will never forget this experience even if a little sketchy.
You get a taxi to take you to the main square of the favela (which is basically off the main road).
If you are looking for the best views of Rio De Janeiro & a fun, Brazilian adventure - this is for you!
Not only do you get to experience a 40 minute jungle trek, offering 360 degree views of Rio, but you get to start...More
Rio de Janeiro offers a couple of great hikes, but this one has always been my favorite. It starts by the soccer field up in the favela of Vidigal and is around an hour until the top. Along the way you can see the neighboring...More
We were doubting if we could do the hike by ourself or needed to book a guide. Eventually we went by ourselfs. We took a bicycle to the Sheraton and then walked to the entrance of the favela. Then we took a bike (5Real) to...More
It was either the best thing or the stupidist thing I have ever done. I wanted to climb Morro Dois Irmaos for sun rise. Waking up at four, the Uber driver picked me up and we had to drive through a fevela. I was feeling...More
With a guide, I visited Vidigal Favela and hiked to the top of the mountain. I would not do this without a guide familiar with the favela and who fits in with the community. But, with a guide, I found the favela visit safe. You...More
This is definitely worth hiking up to, although if you are not used to the heat it can be challenging. It's easy to find the start of the hike, if you are on Ipanema beach look right and you will see a Sheraton hotel. Follow...More
It was my first time going up to the top in the Morro Dois Irmãos. Me (brazilian) and my friend (American) tried to get some information before to know how to do that and then we took to motocicle to go to the track gate...More

The sun is rising like 6:25h next week so from copacabana plus the way up, with a good lantern and some snacks and water, you can at 4h from copa, 20 min to vidigal, get a mototaxi to the top of the favela, and then starts the hike, less then an hour to do it, and really worth it. Don't forget the jacket, Dale, bien venido!
Hi! We always walk down, it takes 15-20min. Alternatively, you can hail the minibuses (old VWs) or motorbikes that ply the route. No schedule or “bus/bike stop”, just wait a few minutes on the side of the road until either... More
Hi! We always walk down, it takes 15-20min. Alternatively, you can hail the minibuses (old VWs) or motorbikes that ply the route. No schedule or “bus/bike stop”, just wait a few minutes on the side of the road until either passes by. It’s a matter of a few minutes. I hope this helps. Just have in mind that there’s been some conflict going on between rival gangs and police, which hasn’t fully resolved yet. You should be fine, but always wise to ask both police and motorbike guys at the entrance of the favela. Ask: “Tudo certo aqui?” You’ll most likely get a thumbs up... :))
