The Rio Highlander Tour will take you to the imponent "Serra dos Orgãos" National Park, located 1 hour by car from Rio de Janeiro. The park is one of the most preserved rainforest areas in southern Brazil, with dozens of jungle hikes and beautiful landscapes. The tour also includes a visit to a nice waterfall and a natural swimming pool.
The origin of the unusual name Serra dos Orgãos (Organ Mountains) is related to early Portuguese explorers who thought the shape of the hill tops resembled the organs in European cathedrals. The park is located in the region known as Rio´s Highlands (Região Serrana), which include the cities of Teresopolis and Guapimirim, among others.

Rio Turismo Radical was created in 2001 as an alternative option of entertainment in Rio de Janeiro. The idea of taking foreign tourists to practice extreme sports in Rio was quite new at that time, and very challenging. For more than 15 years we have worked hard trying to make people have their best time in our beloved city.
