It may seem a little strange to be paddling a Polynesian canoe, usually seen in Hawaii, around Rio’s Guanabara Bay, but it probably makes sense as this is a sightseeing tour with a difference. The beauty of Rio’s coastline, with a backdrop of mountains, rainforests, beaches and idyllic islands, is immediately apparent to the visitor, but you get a much better perspective when you see it from the open water.
Starting from Urca Beach, you’ll paddle around the bay headed for Fora Beach at the foot of the iconic Sugarloaf Mountain. Along the way, expect incredible scenery, great exercise and plenty of opportunities to cool down with a refreshing swim. See the landmarks of this magnificent city from a canoe, meet new friends and learn how to paddle a traditional Polynesian canoe with this fab Rio de Janeiro gift experience.
