Our Expert Trained Instructors will take you on an adrenaline-filled hiking and rappelling adventure in Urca, a traditional neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro's Zona Sul. Here, you'll be able to enjoy breathtaking sights of Sugar Loaf Hill and Urca Hill.

We will begin hiking along a trail surrounded by impressive scenery including Red Beach and Botafogo Bay. Once we reach the top of Urca Hill, you'll be able to admire the beauty and elegance of traditional cable cars. This part of our journey will be filled with taking beautiful pictures and making new friends.

After the hike, we will kick up the adrenaline level with some rappelling. Before we begin, we will participate in a rappel orientation, ensuring a safe and fun experience. We use the latest gear, and you will always be accompanied by a qualified instructor. Once we get all our gear on, you'll be able to enjoy the amazing views from a unique perspective as you rappel back down to sea level.

Join us for an action-packed day exploring Rio's Zona Sul!
