About Emma

Oi, hey! I’m Emma, I have dual citizenship for Brazil and the USA, and I have been living in Rio since 2011 (with a brief pause in 2012 to study in Scotland for 9 months). I am in love with this city.

About Pedra da Gávea

Known for its breathtaking views and steep hike to the top, Pedra da Gavea is a must see if you are up for the adventure. It is the highest point in the whole city, and the hike is about two hours, if going at a steady pace. There are boulders, tree trunks, and an inclined rock wall along the trail. Once there, you will be able to see across the bay to Niterói and the whole surrounding area.
