Full description
The Tijuca Forest is the largest urban forest in the world and offers much more than a tour. This tropical rainforest, which sits on the edge of the city, offers the chance to become familiar with the endemic wild nature. The Tijuca Rainforest and Botanical Gardens are unsurprisingly some of the most popular tours in the city of Rio de Janeiro .

Your tour begins as you head to a popular viewpoint "Vista Chinesa", which translates to Chinese View. Taking its name from a small Chinese-built temple which sits there, it offers unforgettable views of the city.

You will then head to the Tijuca National Park to visit the Taunay waterfalls, the beautiful Mayrink Chapel, and the visitor center of the Tijuca National Park in Rio de Janeiro. Finally, you will finish your amazing half-day tour at the Botanical Gardens, where you will find yourself immersed in its magnificent flora.
