* Enjoy a fun and friendly bike ride around the city
* Observe beautiful landscapes and landmarks
* Let our excellent guide lead the way around the best routes and paths
Grab a bike and let’s go! We start by cycling down to the famous Ipanema beach, embrace the happy and buzzing ambience as we peddle our way down the boulevard.
We continue down this long stretch of paradise until we arrive at the marvelous Jardim de Alah, or also known as Allah’s Garden. Admire this intriguing landscape, with its calming canal dividing Ipanema beach from Leblon and connecting the lagoon to the sea. This canal leads us to Rodrigo de Freita’s Lagoon, an upmarket neighborhood and one of the fanciest in the region. Contemplate its splendor, framed by imposing mountains and embraced by the Christ the Redeemer landmark, Rodrigo de Freita’s Lagoon is famous for its impressive sunset as the golden shimmer from the sun reflects off of the still waters.
Next, we continue riding along the Lagoon bike path, passing 3 charming parks along the way. All the while, listen fondly as our guide tells tales of Rio, such as the rivalry amongst the football clubs and the local popular sport of rowing down the canal towards the end of the 19th century.
After a delightful journey by bike, we return so you can spend the rest of your day resting and contemplating the marvels you’ve just witnessed in this splendid city.
