The Tijuca Forest Tour , is probably one of the top 5 most popular tours in Rio de Janeiro city. The forest is considered to be the largest urban forest in the whole world. It represents 7% of the whole city`s territory, and it is also known as the lungs of Rio. Visiting the city without seeing the forest is like going to New York city and not seeing the central park. Rio is all about nature, wild places and beautiful views. All of these 3 things can be seen and enjoyed in Tijuca Forest.
