Wat je gaat doen

We will take a secret route and hike to the Christ monument avoiding the crowd of tourists - this is not the Parque Lage trail and even few residents know about it. It is ideal for anyone who enjoys walking (family, friends or solo travellers) and a pleasant and sustainable manner to reach the top of the most famous mountain in the country, passing by water sources and beautiful scenarios to appreciate the forest environment and city view.
I will share my knowledge on the national park's history and take you to spots you will not find on your own. It is very likely that we will not cross with anyone on our way, we will enjoy a peaceful environment for hours. On our return we will stop at a waterfall and natural pond for a refreshing bath (the Parque Lage trail does not offer a pleasant bath such as this one).
8:00 we meet and walk towards the trailhead
8:20 we start our hike to Corcovado (4.5 km) on marked trails in the forest. Level: easy to moderate, no climbing involved but some "energy" is needed to conquer the mountain peak (705m) :)
Around 10:30 we arrive at the Christ monument. I will take you to the ticket stand and wait for you outside.
Around 11:30 we start our return (4.5km)
13:00 arrival at the waterfall. We can refresh ourselves, relax and enjoy the natural environment
13:45 return to the meeting point where we started
14:00 we arrive at the meeting point

Super expérience. Découverte originale et sportive du Corcovado. Il faut avoir une très bonne condition physique pour faire les 14 kilomètres (aller/retour). Quelques rencontres avec des serpents et des singes.

Folopo’s hike to Christo was amazing. He is a very thoughtful and considerate guide and we all loved him. The hike was beautiful - you need a reasonable base level of fitness so as to enjoy and complete the hike but this is described in the offering. Would recommend. We enjoyed so much we are doing another tour with Folopo!

Excelente experiência!!! Amei!!! O Felipe é super receptivo, estávamos em um grupo bem heterogêneo, com idiomas diferentes e ele sempre muito solícito em explicar em Português e Francês as curiosidades do local; além de levar petiscos deliciosos (castanhas, chocolates, etc). A trilha é surpreendente, muito tranquila, vimos diversos animais e a vista do Rio lá de cima é de tirar o fôlego.

The hike itself was really intense but Felipe took care of us with snacks, interesting facts about the route and beyond. Even thou it was a challenging way up I felt safe with him around us and he stayed really souverain and calm even in a bit more difficult situations. Overall I really enjoyed the trip.

Energy is needed to reach the top (around 2h30; 1h30 to return), there is walking and inclination (35degree). I will show you where to buy tickets to visit the monument (R$16 or R$32 high season: holidays, weekend, school break). If you don't want to do the hike back the van costs R$10 to descend
