NileGuide Expert tip:
Always take plenty of insect repellent and water when heading into the jungle - mosquitoes are rife, and hiking through the forest is hot, thirsty work
Its towering mountains, thick jungle and crashing waves combine to make Rio de Janeiro a veritable theme park for adventure sports lovers, and Rio Adventures make it possible to see the city's wild nature up close.
Climbing, abseiling, paragliding, hang gliding and canoeing are just some of the high adrenaline activities that Rio Adventures can arange, while hiking trips can be real challenges in the dense rainforest. Rio Adventures organize tours and trips in both English and Portuguese, and take in some off the beaten track locations within a couple of hours' drive of Rio as well as adventures in the city itself.
