The hike to Dois Irmãos Hill is certainly one of the most interesting hikes in Rio de Janeiro, not only for being a formidable landmark on the right side of the trendy Ipanema and Leblon beaches, but also because of its social aspect.
The Dois Irmãos trail starts on the top of the Vidigal Favela, which we will go up by local van or moto-taxi. After hiking for around one and half hour through the forest, we will reach the summit of the highest mountain, standing at 533m / 1750ft high.
It is the perfect viewpoint to understand the social occupation and contrasts in Rio de Janeiro and also the beautiful way the Tijuca Forest mixes with the city.
On the way back, we will go down walking and make a tour through the favela.
* The hike starts at Mirante do Leblon, near the Favela's entrance.

Great hike with breathtaking view
Brent C K, 25-05-2022
We had a great experience with Bernardo at the two brothers hike! The hike is very safe and has the best view I have ever seen. The trail is slightly steep and if you are in decent shape you will make it up quickly. The final part isn’t scary and it is easy to take incredible photos without having to actually be close to the edge. This is a great alternative to those who want to see an amazing but don’t want to do technical climbing of Pedra Gavea. We also got to walk through the Favela and see the local life there and that was also quite an experience. Thanks everyone at RioXtreme for this amazing activity
