About Rio Active Tours
Together with Gabriel Navarro, Marcos Serrao and Jacque Lobo, we created some tours gathering what Rio has the best to offer: cycling towards our beautiful sea-side bike-paths, immersing yourself in a hike at Rio's lush forest and getting to know genuine places. You will experience a much more authentic Rio and feel so many nuances that would simply be missed on a conventional sightseeing vehicle tour. We hope that you enjoy Rio as much as we do!

Thanks to my guide Jacqueline I think I may have spent the best NYE of my life!! The experience started with a bike ride from our meeting point at Copacabana to Leblon. It was a gloriously sunny day and Jacqueline allowed me to go at my own pace; no rush or fuss. Then we parked our bikes and walked across the STREET to take our Moto Taxi up the hill. As a part-time thrill-seeker I was definitely up for this adventure and it was worth it. After the thrills, it was time for the serious stuff. Having not hiked in a while, I knew I had to take my time and I appreciated that Jacqueline allowed me to just do my thing. And although some manouvers were tricky - this experience was worth every ounce of sweat. It was an absolute joy for me. Definitely carry at least 2L of water or Gatorade/Powerade. Have an açai when you get to the top as your reward. Comfortable shows and cool clothing. And book with Jacqueline!! Jacqueline is incredibly knowledgeable and very passionate about showing people the beauty (in all forms) of her country.

A great trip with great guides. Me and my friend were really happy about it. We started the trip on a bicycle at Copacabana beach, then went to Ipanema beach. From there we went to see the favela. And then we hiked up two brothers hill and took a great pictures up there. I recommend this trip for everyone who want to hear more about the story of Rio and for everyone who likes to be out in the nature 😊

We were looking for great hikes in Rio and found this one on tripadvisor. Although not many reviews they have done a lot. We were picked up by the tour guide from the pick up point with bikes. Did a very nice biking tour through copacabana beach and ipanema beach. Went through vidigal (safe main roads) and started the hike. The hike is not difficult to do and offers you a awesome view of Rio. A must do when you are in Rio. For the more adventurous types I would also recommend the Pedra da Gavea hike!

This hike was one of my favourite things I did in Rio. My guide, Jacque, spoke great English and knew the area well. There was a slight change of plan and she dealt with it professionally and without hesitation. Her energy was infectious and the hours we spent together passed in a blink. I can't wait to come back to Rio and do more hikes with her!
