Adventure in Rio de Janeiro

A city where towering mountains tower over the crashing Atlantic Ocean, and where dense tropical jungle sits just seconds away from residential developments, Rio de Janeiro Adventure comes thick and fast.

Adrenaline junkies in Rio de Janeiro will not be disappointed - nowhere else in the world is the term 'Urban Jungle' more appropriate. The world's largest stretch of city jungle, the Tijuca National Park, can be seen as one giant playground for adventure lovers, although even experienced explorers should arrange a guide before heading here as it is all too easy to get lost.

The many mountains of Rio de Janeiro are just crying out to be tackled by abseilers and rockclimbers, while surfers and body boarders can test their skills alongside the locals' at surf hotspots such as Aproador and Recreio, while the crashing waves at Ipanema mean that just taking a dip in the ocean becomes an adventure sport.
For scuba diving in Rio de Janeiro, head down coast to Angra dos Reis, where there are literally hundreds of tropical islands surrounded by calm, clear waters, perfect for scuba adventures.
