Take a wonderful six-hour tour to the beautiful Botanical garden and to the Tijuca National Park, which has one of the biggest urban forests in the world.
The Botanical Garden is one of the oldest and most extensive in the country, with approximately 8.200 species of living plants.
Covering a total area of 137 hectares in the middle of Rio de Janeiro, it is a green oasis where we will take a stroll, showing the visitor the curiosities and varieties of the tropical plants and trees. We will go on a pleasant walk through the most important areas of the Botanical Gardens, with stops and explanations of the various interesting plants and trees. The visitors will learn about bromeliads, orchids, plants of the Amazon, besides other exotic plants. After the visit it is time for lunch (not included).
We will continue the tour to the Tijuca National Park. The Tijuca Forest is home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife, found only in the Atlantic Rainforest. The Tijuca Forest covers 3,200 hectares of land where its history and natural beauty make it a must see attraction in Rio de Janeiro. At the entrance of the park, we will see the Cascatinha, a small but very pretty waterfall.
We will continue by foot and take a light hike where we may spot birds or other animals that are typical of the Atlantic rainforest. After a stroll through the forest we go back to the city, after some very relaxing hours enjoying the lush, green areas above Rio de Janeiro. Return to hotel. End of our services.
