In this Early Bird Experience we will avoid the long lines , which can be up to 2-3 hours in hot sun, at the famous Pedra do Telegrafo, so you can take your time at the rock and get amazing photos. From the rock, on clear days, you have an amazing sunset in the horizon, and we will help you with the most recommended poses.

We will pick you up at Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon or Barra da Tijuca at 02:30am, in a private and comfortable car, and along will be a Rio Official Certified Local Guide who has much experience hiking in the area we will visit.

The hike is mostly easy with some parts of moderate difficulty.

On the way back we can also make a 30 minutes stop for swimming, if you want, at one of 2 amazing beaches in the area; either at Prainha Beach or Grumari Beach. We will drop you off again at your accommodations around 8-9am.

What To Expect

Pedra do Telegrafo
Located in the Pedra Branca State Park, Pedra do Telégrafo (elevation of 350 meters) is at the top of Guaratiba Hill and it takes about an hour to reach the summit. As we arrive here around 5am we should beat the crowds and be able to take our time to marvel at the sunset, with the wild beaches in the foreground.

There are several viewpoints along the way, such as the large rock called Pedra da Bigorna, from where you can marvel at the views of the Restinga da Marambaia sandbank and can on clear days see as far as Ilha Grande.

3 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Praia de Grumari
On the way back we can stop, if you want, to relax and swim at Grumari or Prainha beach for around 30 minutes.

Awesome trip with Tavi from start to finish!
eoingik, 01-08-2021
The sunrise hike with Tavi was a phenomenal experience and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get to know Rio outside of the center of the city. Tavi was able to pick me up from my accommodation and bring me to the start point of the hike in Guaratiba. From there we began the hike and made it to the top with time to spare.
It's easy to grasp after talking with Tavi for a shirt amount of time, that he is very passionate about Rio and Brazil as well. Whether it was in the car passing through various parts of the city, or on the trail looking over the landscape, Tavi was always eager to inform about the city and about Brazil too. You aren't just getting a hike, you will also get an interesting history and geography lesson along with it!

I love to watch the sunrise. The view and sunrise at Telegrafo was so beautiful. It’s a very peaceful place. We hiked for almost 1.5 hrs in the dark to get to the top early. Tavi was great! He brought a flashlight, lots of bug spray and snacks! I recommend wear hiking boots or sneakers.

Be prepared for an early good climb. But what an experience and view. On the way back you'll also see a lot of beautiful sites you couldn't see on your way there because it is still dark. The Whole trip was worth it in my opinion.
