984 Reviews

Whether you’re looking for the surf, the golden sands or to soar in the skies above, visiting Sao Conrado Beach (Praia de São Conrado) is a highlight of Rio de Janeiro. Here in this affluent, oceanfront neighborhood that’s sometimes called Praia Pepino, visitors will find an eclectic combo of people, many of whom are surfers or paragliders. The juxtaposition of social classes is evident out on the streets—yet everyone seems to equally enjoy the combo of sunshine and surf.

When strolling the sands of Sao Conrado, be sure to look up and scan the skies for hangliders circling above. The beach is a popular landing spot for groups of paragliders and hangliders, most of whom have launched from the slopes of neighboring Pedra Bonita. To get a birds-eye view for yourself—but keep your feet back on land—a strenuous trail climbs 2,500 feet up towering Pedra da Gávea. This stoic sentinel and oceanfront rock is a classic Rio landmark, though the round-trip climb can take a whole day—even for seasoned hikers.

The Private Helicopter Flight in Rio de Janeiro is one of the most spectacular and memorable experiences you will have from your visit to Rio and in your life. The opportunity to see the city from the sky is something unique and unforgettable. The helicopter rises and the symphony begins under your eyes. The incredible balance between nature and the city will take your breath away! The Tijuca Forest extends into the heart of the city, covering the mountains with a fresh and vivid green color. Beaches, islands, emblematic buildings, Guanabara Bay, Sugar Loaf Mountain, the legendary Maracanã Stadium, all of that and much more can be seen from the helicopter. The social contrast is also really interesting to see from the sky. The favorite moment for most of our guests is when you can look into the eyes of the statue, Christ the Redeemer! We have no words to explain this experience. Undoubtedly, a private helicopter flight is the best way to see and understand the city of Rio de Janeiro!
