About Pedra Bonita
You cannot visit our city without doing the Pedra Bonita Hiking Tour in Rio de Janeiro. Pedra Bonita is a hidden gem, towering above the forest of Tijuca National Park and offering a bird’s eye view across the city. It stands at 696 meters (2,283) feet, and lies between the neighborhoods of São Conrado and Barra da Tijuca. The views from the top are exceptionally breathtaking, and the trail is considered to be easy for regular hikers.
From the summit, the west side of the city can be seen spread-out beneath, along with most of the Zona Sul (South Zone), Pedra da Gávea , São Conrado beach and even the statue of Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) in the distance.
