Full description
Firstly, head off from Copacabana, cruising along the majestic Ipanema Beach. Explore the streets, people-watch in one of the city’s most scenic locations, and learn how this neighborhood has been inspiring artists for decades. Then, leave the beach behind as you cycle through the picturesque Allah’s Garden, towards the massive Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, known simply to locals as the ‘lagoa.’

Stop by the lagoon’s entertainment area to enjoy a refreshing coconut water break and soak up the atmosphere of this popular spot. Once you're refreshed, cycle over to the botanical gardens, where you can jump off your bike to enjoy a walking tour. Admire the stunning imperial palms, learn more about the garden’s history, and admire the vast orchid collection in the greenhouse.

Then, jump back on your bike and cycle through the bohemian Baixo Gavea, returning to the seaside as you explore Leblon Beach. You'll get a photo-worthy moment when you admire the great beach view from Leblon’s lookout point. Cruise along the coast a bit more, passing by Ipanema Beach, before reaching Arpoador Beach, where you’ll understand why the sunset is so special here. Finally, ride back through Girl from Ipanema Park to reach Copacabana once again, where your Rio bike tour comes to an end.
