Description:

The tour will start at 8:00am in the south zone: Ipanema, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, going to Copacabana towards Flamengo Park and Marina da Glória. This was considered the zone of Copacabana where several sports occurred: canoeing, aquatic pentathlon, beach volleyball, sailing and marathon, among others. Along the way we can enjoy some of Rio's tourist icons: Corcovado, Pão de Açúcar, the Copacabana boardwalk and the gardens of Flamengo Park, both created by the famous landscaper artist Burle Marx.

After the Olympic zone of Copacabana we will continue towards the Sambódromo, Maracanã and Olympic Stadium known as Engenhão. These arenas were part of the Olympic zone called Maracanã by the International Olympic Committee.

Then, in the area of Deodoro and Vila Militar, we will know the Radical Park or X-Park specially prepared to attend sports modalities like slalom canoeing, BMX and Mountain Bike. Enjoy and visit the Olympic Shooting Center and the arenas where pentathlon and equestrian sports took place.

The Vila Militar draws attention to the choice of architecture, which follows a neoclassical style, similar to the historic buildings in the center of the city of Rio de Janeiro, and we will tell you the whole history of this similarity.

We will visit the Aerospace Museum in the traditional and legendary Campo dos Afonsos, where the Brazilian Airclub was born. Founded on October 14, 1911, the second air club in the world had as president of honor Santos Dumont, who built the 14 Bis, his first airplane, and whose exact replica is in that museum. Around here was also Roland Garros favorite pilot of Santos Dumont, which gives name to the famous French tennis tournament.

We will continue towards Barra da Tijuca, area of the Olympic Park that was the scene of most sports. Along the way we will observe some of the regions of Rio de Janeiro cut by the Trans-Olympic route as the Pedra Branca Park with the culminating point of the City of 1025 meters high, and the Tijuca Forest.

From Barra da Tijuca you can see some of the attractions of the Carioca nature such as Pico da Tijuca, Pico do Papagaio, Pedra Bonita, Pedra da Gávea, the four lagoons that form the so called Carioca Pantanal and several beaches from Pontal to Joatinga.

Finally, we will continue along the coastline from Barra da Tijuca to Ipanema, enjoying the undulations of the coastal area of the sea and the mountains. We finish the tour at 4:00pm.
