You’ll find historical spots, spectacular views, a beautiful waterfall, a small chapel and unusual trees in this dense, tropical national park, probably best explored by jeep tour.

We took a Tijuca Jeep tour set up through our hotel and it was super fun. They took us for Açai juice, and stopped at a bunch of amazing lookouts and waterfalls for pictures. My kids enjoyed it and the guides were great. Would recommend...More

Loved it! Some of the views were just as impressive as from Christ the redeemer or sugarloaf. Nice place to spend some time when in Rio.

Took a tour to tijuca forest. Our tour guide filipe was the best. I would recommend getting in touch with him before anyone else. Knowledgeable, funny and acommodating . Check him up at Rio off the path tours

Hiked pedra de GAvea you have to enter park to do so. I felt safe even thoe I've read reviews of people saying it might be dangerous. Take bug spray and sunblock as it gets hot.

Went to the Chinese view and walked to the waterfalls. I know we went by car but I don't remember from what entrance we entered. Be mindful of your belongings left in the car. Bring mosquito repellent and leave before it gets dark. Beautiful sights...More

Lots of trails and Peaks to visit, but find specialized guides. Always walk in groups and avoid carrying lots of money, expensive watches ... sports suits for walks. Unfortunately political instability reflects on public safety.

A beautiful experience within nature yet a little artificial. Good to see but not a must a little like the rest of the fauna of the area.

Yes, but not very often. It's better to take a private car.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.

You're not being paranoid, but to be sure, bring some OFF, or other lotion to put on to protect yourself. I've been there twice, at different times of the year and never used anything, with no problems.
