Easy level hike, great payoff view, all with a private guide.


Going to the summit of Two Brothers is a great way to understand more of the city for the ones whom like a bit of exercise and contemplating nature.

Two brothers is one of the most beautiful postcards of the city. The hill is located by the right side of Leblon & Ipanema beach. It is great to look at it from the beach, and imagine getting to the summit. From there we have an amazing view of the cost line from over 500 meters above sea level.

The hiking by itself is easy, but is not that easy to enter the track.

We will drive to the entrance of Favela do Vidigal, than we get local transportation to the top of the community and finally start the track.

Depending on your physical condition, we will take 40 minutes max. walking to the summit.

It is an unforgettable experience, since we go through social contrasts (crossing the favela) and a great payoff once we get to the peak. Just so you realize, it's good to mention that we'll be over 100 meters higher than the Sugar Loaf.

It is not to be missed. YOLO
