DOIS IRMÃOS HIKING TOUR – PROGRAM
The trail takes a bit less than one hour to the sumit, at 533 meters. It is just 1,6 km (1 mile) long and it’s quite easy for most regular hikers . Once up there, travelers can contemplate of of the best views of Rio. That includes places like Ipanema, Arpoador, São Conrado and a bit of Tijuca Forest. The trail is accessed via the Favela of Vidigal. On the way up, and also after the hike ends, the guide will make a few stops along the slum, for photos for showing around. This trip is a great oportunity for active travelers who also like to enjoy and learn about social and cultural aspects of our city and people. This is what this hiking trip differs from other hikes we offer in Rio. Since the pacification campaign started, 38 police units (UPP) have been established in favela communities such as Vidigal which makes this trip a safe and fun option during your stay in Rio.
For those who are a bit more adventurous, we have the option of going up to the beginning of the trail by motorcycle!
