A bit of Rio
Rio de Janeiro is a wonderful city. In fact, it`s one of the most beautiful and fun cities on earth. Carnival, breathtaking beaches, forests, magnificent architecture, excellent restaurants and night life are here, waiting to be enjoyed.
But besides all that, what most people don`t realize, is that the city has a great potential when it comes to outdoor activities. And instead of just visiting it, tourists can interact with nature, whether it`s hiking, climbing, zip lining in Tijuca Forest or hang gliding. And within a 2 hour drive from the city, around the state of Rio de Janeiro, customers can also choose from many different options of adventures, such as rafting, scuba diving or exciting sidetrips to Ilha Grande or Serra dos Orgãos for example.
A bit of us
Rio Adventures is an adventure tour operator that has been around since 2001, managed by a team of "locals" that know exactly what travelers and outdoor enthusiasts are looking for, when coming to Rio. We are focused in outdoor activities, adventure sports and ecotourism, but we also provide the regular and most common tours, to places such as Sugar Loaf, Corcovado and other tour spots. It is just a matter of choice. You may choose to go up to Sugar Loaf by cable car, no problem in that, we will surely take you up there. But we will be very pleased if you decide to get up there by walking, or even rock climbing. Our philosophy - which really defines us for what we are as a company and who we are as employees - is to offer you a different approach, a particular way to see our city, through our eyes. Once we have accomplished that, we will consider our mission done.
We provide online booking, to make your life a little easier. Just drop us a line and request your tour. After we confirm availability we will give you a code to access our booking form, where you will fill out all the required information, and will secure your spot by paying a deposit thru Paypal. Unlike many tour operators, we only require a 20% to 50% deposit, according to the tour. If you are already in Rio , the booking is done thru the phone since Paypal blocks payment attempts made overseas. We will require your credit card information in order to confirm your booking. The deposit will be charged on your credit card and the remaining balance is paid in cash to our guide in charge, at the start of the tour. Check our Terms and Conditions for all detailed info.
So get ready to experience nature like never before!
