Getting to know Rio
The city displays beautiful beaches and small patches of virtually untouched nature which invite us to long outdoor walks in the amazing sceneries between beach and mountains. Get ready for breathtaking moments of beauty and amazement. Jungle Me and Jeep Tour are two companies that offer individual and collective tours for around R$100 almost every day of the week. Choose your setting, take a deep breath, wear cool and comfortable clothing, let yourself relax, have fun and get to know a little bit of the history of the Marvelous City.
Jeep Tour is pioneer in offering tours of the city in jeeps, walking tours of the wilderness and awing the tourists with Rio’s natural beauty. The adventure starts in the North or South area of Rio and crosses forests, waterfalls, beaches, tourist
hotspots or the architecture of Old Rio and Santa Teresa. Jeep Tours’ trained guides speak many languages and are at your disposal to show you the city’s valuable historic content. Enjoy beautiful green trails full of animals and plants and amazing views from North to South of the city, at Tijuca Forest. The world’s largest urban reforested forest is a great option for those who want to see another side of Rio.
Jungle Me is an environmentally responsible ecotourism company, and the first carbon free company in the industry. Jungle Me strives to keep true to its concept of interaction and respect for nature by compensating for 100% of its carbon emissions through the planting of new trees. The tour of the wild beaches of Rio is what the company is famous for. It
includes curiosities about the city, like the colonizing by the Portuguese, the start of the shantytowns (favelas) after the abolishment of slavery and in depth information about the animals and plants of Rio. After an easy trail through the park, you will reach the beautiful and secluded beaches for a swim in clear waters and an amazing view of Zona Sul and
gorgeous Restinga da Marambaia.
