Did you know that Rio is a city that has many different peaks to climb? This topography is a very important part of our culture. Not only because of the favelas, a significant part of the carioca community, but also due to the unique beauty that they bring to our landscape. Rio is a city filled with hills and surrounded by mountains, and for that reason we have many options for hiking and climbing here.
Step out of your comfort zone, and let’s go together on a journey of adventure! Want to connect with nature and see one of the best views in Rio from the top? This is a perfect opportunity for you to explore the morros cariocas! You’ll be able to practice Portuguese with a private teacher while you’re in touch with nature (literally, because you’re climbing in Rio de Janeiro, got the joke? Hahahaha). So you’ll be able to have a special memory about your time in this amazing city!
How do I know where I will climb?
Undoubtedly, the ascent to each of the peaks in Rio de Janeiro entails varying levels of difficulty. So, how do you determine which climb is right for you? It’s simple! Your instructor will assess your climbing experience level — whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or advanced — and make a well-informed decision. Our top priority is ensuring you have a safe and captivating experience tailored to your abilities.
If you’re new to climbing or have never tried it before, your instructor will likely recommend an easy climb, such as a rock in Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. Even though this is considered a beginner level, the breathtaking views make it worthwhile, providing you with valuable experience to tackle more challenging climbs in the future.
For those at an intermediate and advanced level, Morro da Babilônia or Morro do Cantagalo are viable options. These climbs are more demanding but guarantee a sense of accomplishment. They also offer an opportunity to explore different neighborhoods in Rio, enhancing your familiarity with our city.
The key takeaway is to trust your instructor’s choice. They will select the best climbing option based on your capabilities, ensuring you have an enjoyable experience no matter the chosen route!
