Dois Irmaos
Dois Irmaos tour

Dois Irmaos is one of the most iconic peaks in Rio de Janeiro, most of the post-cards of Rio with Ipanema or Leblon beaches has it in the background. It is accessible by a trail that starts at Vidigal's favela, a peacified favela located just next to Leblon neighborhood.

Our meeting point will be at Copacabana beach, where I will be standing with the bikes. Within half an hour cycling, we reach the entrance of Vidigal favela, where we will park them. Finally we will take a moto-taxi all the way up the favela, where we start the trail itself.

Along the way, you will be surprised with beautiful views of Sao Conrado beach, Tijuca's forest, Rocinha's favela and the Christ. The trail takes about 1h each way.

Marcos Serrao is a true bike activist, associate member of Transporte Ativo organization, with whom he has published two mobile apps for Android devices. The 2015 crisis was just the push we needed to go for our own business and to work with my passions. Together with Gabriel Navarro, Jacqueline Lobo and Ricardo Carramillo, we created some tours gathering what Rio has the best to offer: cycling towards our beautiful sea-side bike-paths, immersing yourself in a hike at Rio's lush forest and getting to know genuine places. You will experience a much more authentic Rio and feel so many nuances that would simply be missed on a conventional sightseeing vehicle tour. We hope that you enjoy Rio as much as we do!
