Tijuca Forest Jeep Tour Rio de Janeiro Description:
One thing that makes Rio so beautiful is the lush green everywhere. The Tijuca Rainforest plays a large role in keeping the city green and protecting its water sources.
Home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife, waterfalls, trails, and more, spending a few hours in this jungle refreshes and reinvigorates with ease.
You’ll visit waterfalls, the famous Vista Chinesa, take an easy trail, and learn about the history of this immense urban forest (perhaps the largest in the world), which was reclaimed from farmland in the 19th century.
Cruising top-down with us means in your journey through the forest you’ll feel completely immersed in the jungle! Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, toucans, iguanas, funky insects… Catching all the views at every turn.
