From Corcovado Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer statue to Sugar Loaf and the infamous favelas, a jeep tour is the perfect way to experience Rio in all its diversity. Many operators offer tours deep into the Tijuca Forest for a close encounter with the flora and fauna of the rainforests. For cariocas themselves, the forest is one of the major attractions. The sheer size of the forest makes it impossible to traverse on your own, which is why many consider guided jeep tours. Exploring the Tijuca Forest in an open jeep can be the most exhilarating experience of a lifetime.

Your tours can take you to the famous Emperor's Table or Mesa do Imperador, Cascatinha Waterfalls, Chinese Viewpoint, Mayrink Chapel, and the famous 'Cachoeira dos macacos' or Monkey's Waterfall. Trekking is also a part of jeep tours where you can get to learn more about the region's ecosystem including different types of plants, fruits, trees, animals, and numerous endangered species of birds and butterflies. Of course, you will have plenty of photo opportunities and memories to take back home. Many of these jeep tours last from 3 to 6 hours where you can even get to cruise Sepetiba Bay for a close encounter with dolphins and turtles.
