In this Early Bird Experience, we will avoid the long lines, which can be up to 2-3 hours, at the famous Pedra do Telegrafo, so you can take your time at the rock and hopefully get amazing photos. From the rock, on clear days, you have an amazing sunset on the horizon, and we will help you with the most recommended poses.
We will pick you up at Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon or Barra da Tijuca at 02:30 am, in a private and comfortable car, and along will be a Rio Official Certified Local Guide who has much experience hiking in the area we will visit. The hike is mostly easy with some parts of moderate difficulty.
On the way back we can also make a 30 minutes stop for swimming, if you want, at one of 2 amazing beaches in the area; either at Prainha Beach or Grumari Beach. We will drop you off again at your accommodations around 8-9 am.
Located in the Pedra Branca State Park, Pedra do Telégrafo (elevation of 350 meters) is at the top of Guaratiba Hill and it takes about an hour to reach the summit. As we arrive here around 5am we should beat the crowds and be able to take our time to marvel at the sunset, with the wild beaches in the foreground. There are several viewpoints along the way, such as the large rock called Pedra da Bigorna, from where you can marvel at the views of the Restinga da Marambaia sandbank and can on clear days see as far as Ilha Grande.
On the way back we can stop, if you want, to relax and swim at Grumari or Prainha beach for around 30 minutes.
