You’ll find historical spots, spectacular views, a beautiful waterfall, a small chapel and unusual trees in this dense, tropical national park, probably best explored by jeep tour.

Took a tour to tijuca forest. Our tour guide filipe was the best. I would recommend getting in touch with him before anyone else. Knowledgeable, funny and acommodating . Check him up at Rio off the path tours

Hiked pedra de GAvea you have to enter park to do so. I felt safe even thoe I've read reviews of people saying it might be dangerous. Take bug spray and sunblock as it gets hot.

Went to the Chinese view and walked to the waterfalls. I know we went by car but I don't remember from what entrance we entered. Be mindful of your belongings left in the car. Bring mosquito repellent and leave before it gets dark. Beautiful sights...More

Lots of trails and Peaks to visit, but find specialized guides. Always walk in groups and avoid carrying lots of money, expensive watches ... sports suits for walks. Unfortunately political instability reflects on public safety.

A beautiful experience within nature yet a little artificial. Good to see but not a must a little like the rest of the fauna of the area.

As this is the largest urban forest in the world. A tour will show you the usual stuff like trials an waterfalls. It should be high on your list of experiences. We combined it with a trip to Santa Teresa also for safety.

Yes, but not very often. It's better to take a private car.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.

You're not being paranoid, but to be sure, bring some OFF, or other lotion to put on to protect yourself. I've been there twice, at different times of the year and never used anything, with no problems.
