The hike to Dois Irmãos Hill is certainly one of the most interesting hikes in Rio de Janeiro, not only for being a formidable landmark on the right side of the trendy Ipanema and Leblon beaches, but also because of its social aspect. The Dois Irmãos trail starts on the top of the Vidigal Favela, which we will go up by local van. After hiking for around one hour and a half through the forest, we will reach the summit of the highest mountain, standing at 533m / 1750ft of altitude. It is the perfect viewpoint to understand the social occupation and contrasts in Rio de Janeiro and also the beautiful way the Tijuca Forest mixes with the city. On the way back, instead of using the local van, we will go down walking and make a tour through the favela. Book now your Morro Dois Irmaos hiking tour in Rio de Janeiro!
A short walk of around 90 minutes (round trip) takes us to the summit of Dois Irmãos [Two Brothers Hill], which is located along the coast of the city and separates the south zone of Rio from the west zone. From there you have stunning views of many of Rio’s beaches including Ipanema, Arpoador, and Pepino as well as views of Tijuca Forest. Both on the outgoing and return trip, we shall stop of at strategic points to take photos of Vidigal favela in addition to telling the history of the favela.
For those seeking a little more adventure we suggest climbing the favela by motorcycle until the beginning of the Dois Irmãos trail and then descending on foot, stopping at various places to photograph the daily life of the Vidigal favela.
