About Dois Irmãos
Our Dois Irmãos Hiking Tour in Rio de Janeirowill take you to the top of one of the most famous mountains in Rio, the Dois Irmãos Hill (Twin Brothers). Located on the coastline of the city, it marks the division of leblon and pepino beach in São Conrado. When you look at it from Ipanema beach, you cannot miss it, as it looks like a shark with the mouth wide open. It is 533 meters high, and accessed only via Vidigal Slum. It has one of the most amazing views of our city, and is one of Rio´s post cards The trail is considered to be easy for most regular hikers. Its length is just 1,6 km (1 mile) long and it’s quite easy for most regular hikers as it takes a bit less than an hour to reach its summit.
Tour starts with hotel pick up at 08:00 am. In summer we do it at 7:00 due to the heat. We head out to the Favela do Vidigal, where we can either park the car and go straight to trail or have the optional ride in the moto taxis as we call (optional service paid separately).
We pass by the narrow streets of the favela before we reach the beginning of the trail. 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. 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 opportunity for active travelers who also like to enjoy and learn about social and cultural aspects of our city and people.
