Recreation & Natural Areas in Rio de Janeiro

Unarguably one of the world's most dramatically beautiful cities, Rio de Janeiro offers no end of scope for enjoying the great outdoors.

Rio's cityscape takes in towering mountains, dense tropical jungle and, of course, those legendary beaches, and outdoor recreation in Rio de Janeiro is sure to stimulate the senses.

While adrenaline junkies in Rio de Janeiro will jump at the chance to scale mountains, dive into crashing waves and thrash their way through thick rainforest, there are plenty of Rio de Janeiro recreation and natural areas for those of a gentler disposition as well.

Our number one pick, Lagoa, offers something for everyone, with its stunning views, rowing boats, running/walking/cycling track and exercise stations.

The beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana are also prime spots for sports as well as for more relaxing acgtivities such as sunbathing and, that most popular of beach activities, people-watching.
