Paragliding over Pedra Bonita
Enjoy the sights of Rio from above. Go paragliding over Pedra Bonita, a hidden gem towering over the forests of Tijuca National Park. Thrill seekers can take the plunge at the paragliding station just 1,700 feet above Rio's Zona Sul, or South Zone. For those with weaker stomachs, a platform is located under the wooden runway to watch adrenaline junkies take off.
