Full description

Embark on a rafting trip in Rio de Janeiro and discover the picturesque mountainous region in Casimiro de Abreu. Prepare to rekindle your love of the outdoors and nature thanks to the area's many rivers, rapids, and lush vegetation.

After pickup and an approximately 2-hour drive from Rio, reach the calm and peaceful nature of Casimiro de Abreu. Following brief instructions, gear up in included rafting gear, then begin the fun out on the water.

The rafting circuit lasts approximately 1.5 hours. You'll travel 5 km (3.1 miles) on the river, with rapids ranging from level 2 to 3+, offering you plenty of thrills throughout your adventure. 

In some parts of the river, calm water sections allow you to enjoy river floating or to stop to dive in the clear, clean waters.

At the end of your adventure, stop at a homemade food restaurant before drop-off back at our pickup location (costs not included).
