Corcovado Hiking Tour
PROGRAM: After the pick up, our Corcovado hiking tour takes you to the Parque Laje (Laje Park), located in the south area of Rio de Janeiro city, not far from the Botanical Garden. The 2 hours hike on a steep trail, up to the top at 710 meters ( 2330 feet), is perfect for regular hikers or the more adventurous ones. Is considered to be a moderate/difficult hike, so being in good physical conditions is a must. Along the way, within the lush Tijuca Forest, animals like toucans, capuchin monkeys and many other species may be spotted.Unlike the other hikes in Rio, this one does not take you to the summit, but close to it. The trail ends at the gate, where tickets to access the statue by van must be purchased. The ride inside the van takes only 5 minutes. After visiting the statue, we get back in the van to reach the trail by the gate. The return to Parque Laje is made through the same trail.
