Trip Info

In the new neighborhood Barra da Tijuca, housing estates push in on the city’s last remaining mangrove forests. Take this boat trip and get to know the islands and the biodiversity of the lakes, enabling you to imagine how Rio’s untouched landscape would have once looked. In this oasis inside a metropolis, we might encounter alligators, capybaras, crabs and herons. And during a walk through islands where cars are not allowed, we talk about ecology, urban sustainability and the challenges of the 2016 Olympic Games organization.
