Outdoor Activities in Rio de Janeiro

With so many outdoor activities Rio de Janeiro, there's simply no excuse for staying holed up in your hotel room. When the sun shines on the city, the beaches, mountains, lush jungle and attractive parks all beckon, and outdoor activities in Rio range from gentle strolls to adrenaline-pumping adventures.

Sporty types can try their hand at surfing at Arpoador, handily located between the beaches of Ipanema or Copacabana, or head out to Barra da Tijuca and beyond for more elbow room on the beaches. Sun seekers can take their pick from several good beaches within Rio's city limits, while taking a boat trip down the Costa Verde provides an opportunity to explore countless beautiful islands.

For those with a head for heights, one of the most exhilarating outdoor things to do in Rio de Janeiro is to soar high over the city on a tandem hangglinding flight, while climbers are spoilt for choice when it comes to challenging rock faces.

If you like your outdoor activities a little more tranquil, the beautiful Botanical Gardens and nearby Park Lage are great places for a stroll and a picnic, while Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro's beautiful city lake, invites visitors to peddle out on a swan boat or cycle around the seven kilometer perimeter track.
