Explore the most popular Waterfall trails in Brazil with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

As a hiker in Rio for almost ten years now I’ve never heard about this. Be careful.

Usually cariocas don’t like this trail because there’s no (nice) view.

It’s just a dirt road, no technical difficulty besides loose sand over hardpack. Some steep hills though, especially at the first 2 miles. For bikers with some fitness, no beginners. And there are many awesome singletrack trails that can be accessed from this main one. Just there are no signs at all. Either ride with a local or download on your GPS from other apps like Wikiloc or Garmin.

One of the hidden gems in Parana State in Brazil, the Guartelá Canyon seem to be only known by locals. There are a couple of different trails, but the most challenging ones require a guide (for reasons that no one could explain). The easy trail is worthwhile your time though and the canyon is more impressive that pictures can tell.

The walk is very easy, you get the best views of the falls from the Brazilian side. I would highly recommend that you take the extra day to go. Even the “Title Profile Photo” of “Lguazu Falls from Argentinian Side” was taken from the Brazilian side. This side has great views of the water coming over the falls.

I also did the hike to Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado leaving from tijuca. It is very steep and there is not a lot of information to be found online. It is possible to hike the same way down and save purchasing the train ticket down, although the people selling tickets to christ the redeemer will try to tell you otherwise. There is no better way to see Christ the Redeemer!

I actually hiked the trail that leads to the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) of Corcovado but I can't find it on this app. Anyhow, very challenging trail including rock climbing and hanging onto root systems to pull yourself up. The monkeys kept us company! Glad though they weren't mean and I didn't encounter a giant snake in my path!
