Description

About Corcovado  Mountain

The name Corcovado means hunch back, and was given due to the mountain`s similarity to a camel back (corcova). The statue of Christ at the top, is 38 meters tall (around 120 feet) and is one of the new seven wonders of the world. The trail is a bit steep at some points, which is perfect for regular hikers or the more adventurous ones. It 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.

Thank you for submitting your review

Premier vol pour moi et ma femme, le service et les pilotes sont au top et très professionnels. Il faut appeler en amont pour vérifier si le vent est OK. Le point de rencontre se situe au bout de la Praia de Pepino. Nous prenons ensuite une voiture pour monter sur le site de départ situé à un peu plus de 500m d'altitude (montée d'environ 10 min en voiture). Ensuite il y'a quelques marches à monter pour arriver sur la rampe de lancement. Les pilotes expliquent très bien la manière de procéder (en anglais) et il faut attendre que le vent soit dans la bonne direction pour décoller (peu prendre plusieurs minutes). Le vol dure entre 8 et 20 Minutes selon le vent et la corpulence (max 110kg). Expérience magique entre les différents mont rocheux et le panorama en fond ou l'on voit le Corcovado et la favela de Rocinha. Le pilote laisse le pilotage pour quelques minutes également ! L'atterrissage se fait soit sur la plage soit sur le terrain en herbe situé près du point de rencontre. Pour finir, ils nous fournissent un CD avec de nombreuses photos et la vidéo entière du vol. Je recommande les yeux fermés cette compagnie. Nos pilotes étaient André et Viniscius (excellent pédagogue pour ma femme qui avait très peur de sauter) que je recommande chaudement. Prix en cette saison : 450 reais Ça vaut vraiment le coût ! Je referai sans hésitation si je reviens à Rio
