What you'll do

We will start our experence in Joá (Barra da Tijuca neighborhood). There we meet each other and I'll tell you a bit about the walk. After that we'll leave for the beginning of the track that can last from 60 to 90 minutes depending on the group pace. We will walk inside the Tropical Forest of the region interacting directly with the local fauna and flora. This trail comprises for the most part sections of steep climbs and some parts on blocks. When we reach our destination will see a crack that justifying the merit of being called Garganta do Céu or Throat of Sky. Gives us a unique and magnificent view of the city of Rio de Janeiro. I'm sure every effort to climb will be rewarded when contemplating this environment surrounded by rocks and opens up a horizon so wonderful forward an imposing contrast between the rock formation and the Atlantic Coast. Especially the neighborhood of São Conrado and the mountain Dois Irmãos (Two brothers). It's really breathtaking!
The way back lasts around 80 minutes and near the end we can enjoy a swim in the waterfall of the region. The waterfall is about 8 meters high and also have a small pool perfect for relaxing after the trail!

Meet your host, Luiz Guilherme

  • Identity verified
I'm 33 years old geologist, from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro climber and passionate about trails! Being in touch with nature is part of my essence and renews me every second. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro have been doing this type of walk for more than 20 years. Learning more and more how to interact constructively with nature. Practicing outdoor sports provides rewarding self-knowledge, rewarding not only the body but also the mind.

Where you'll be

We will be in one of the areas of the Tijuca Park and it is our responsibility to act in a minimally impacting way.
Our first point will be the viewpoint of the Throat of Sky definitely a unique view of Rio. And then we will take to take a bath and enjoy the local waterfall. It is also an activity that demands favorable weather conditions.

Luiz was a great guide and great company for this trek. The trek is a little long, but the view at the end of the trail is absolutely breathtaking and amazing. Luiz is passionate and wants to make sure everyone has a great time.

Fue una experiencia increíble. Luiz es muy puntual para la fecha y hora de encuentro y además, te orienta sobre lo que necesitas llevar. En esta experiencia en particular, se requiere de un guía ya que por cuenta propia considero no es recomendable llegar. Él en todo momento me ayudó con el trayecto y llevó snacks para brindar. Fue paciente y llevó un ritmo de acuerdo a mis condiciones físicas. La vista al llegar a Garganta do Céu es impresionante. Sin duda, vale la pena vivir esta experiencia.
