Floresta da Tijuca
The Tijuca Forest in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is locally known as Floresta da Tijuca. The rain forest is located in the Tijuca National Park and is the largest urban forest in the world, home to hundreds of extremely rare species of plant and animal life. Adding to the exotic allures of the rain forest, are numerous attractions both natural, such as spectacular waterfalls and mountains, and man-made including the world famous Christo Redentorstatue . The views from the forest are breath taking and the historic landmarks are amazing including several monuments to Brazil’s first emperors.
- Go for a hike up Corcovado Mountain to where the world famous 40-metre Christo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer Statue stands watch over Rio de Janeiro for a fabulous view.
- Explore Brazil’s fabulous past at the Museu do Açude, a museum showcasing ancient Portuguese, Oriental and Mayan artefacts as well as works by contemporary Brazilian artists located right in the middle of Floresta da Tijuca.
- View the Capela Mayrink, a fabulous chapel and architectural masterpiece with panels painted by the talented modernist artist Cândido Portinari.
International travellers can take advantage of Brazil’s numerous international airports to fly into Rio de Janeiro.

Taxis can drop you off at Alta Boa Vista while the metro will take you to Saens Pena. The bus 233 travels to the forest and just at the entrance to the forest is a place where you can buy a map. From there many marked walking trails will guide you through this magnificent hand-planted forest.
