Claimed to be the world's largest urban forest, the Tijuca Forest is a tropical rainforest in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The Tijuca tour is one of the most popular tours in the city and by far the best way to have a sneak peek at the Brazilian lifestyle of its wild inhabitants. This part of the Atlantic forest offers visits to  Vista Chinesa (Chinese View) for panoramic views of the surrounding greenery. The tour includes a 4-hour easy hike with an able guide, which gives you the chance to spot native animals such as monkeys, birds, butterflies and sometimes even sloths!

The tour arranger will pick you up from your hotel in Rio and clasp you in an open-air jeep for the most fun and entertaining ride! The entrance of the Tijuca Forest is located just 10 minutes away from the city centre. Here you'll learn about the reforestation program of Tijuca National Park and the importance of the species of plants and wildlife that are threatened by extinction but found only in the Atlantic Rainforest ecosystem, which covers 14 states of Brazil.

During your 4-hour trek, you'll stop at many dramatic and eye-catching vantage points, such as Emperor's Table and Mayrink Chapel, for photo opportunities. From here, one can click amazing panoramic shots of Copacabana beaches, Guanabara Bay and even as far as Niteroi.

The return back is short and lasts approximately 15-30 minutes. This easy trail features cascading waterfalls of Cachoeira dos Macacos and Cascatinha. At the end of the jeep tour, you'll be dropped off at your Rio de Janeiro hotel.

If you want to experience the living rainforest and admire the wildlife, check the availability of the Tijuca Rain Forest Jeep Tour.
