This jeep tour takes you deep into the enchanting Tijuca Forest, south of Rio de Janeiro. Tijuca covers nearly 4000 acres and is the largest urban forest in the world. It is one of the last easily-accessible areas of 'Mata Atlantica' - the original forest that once covered the whole coastal area of southern Brazil. On this tour you will see stunning waterfalls and dense vegetation and experience a sense of tranquility which makes it hard to believe that such a vibrant, cosmopolitan city lies just beyond the forest.

The Tijuca Forest can be combined with a visit to Christ the Redeemer on the top of Corcovado Mountain, or as part of our special Thee Ecosystems of Rio de Janeiro tour.
