The Pedra de Gavea is an impressing granite mountain on Rio's shoreline, easily recognizable for its huge flat top. It is certainly the city's most beautiful hike, but it is only recommended for the reasonably fit and experienced hiker. During the three hour trail, we are inside the Atlantic Rain Forest, which once covered the whole of the coastline of southern Brazil. On the last part the vegetation is lower and the views are breathtaking; a blend of forested slopes, deep blue ocean and the Marvellous City. After a short and easy rock-climb we reach the summit - perhaps Rio's most spectacular viewpoint and one enjoyed by few visitors.
