trekking, hiking....
Posted January 26th, 2010 - 10:30 am by from Fuenlabrada, Spain (Permalink)
Hello

I'm from spain and I will be in Rio this Friday till Monday 8th.

I'm looking for information, and sports mates, to do activities during my stay there.

What I like to do, even I can't do it often, is swiming, diving, treking...

I'm looking for this information.
- About going in a ship to dive and swimng in the deep sea (I mean swimn far from the beach, maybe in reefs or islands which are not crawdy)

- About jumping in zip wire or tirolean crossing

- About doing ala delta flying over Rio for a while

Any help will be welcome and of course, those activities will be funniest with your company.

see you soon.

thank you fernanda!!! I did it.

Yolanda, if you want we can go to a far away beach called Praia do Perigoso. It's an easy and beautiful trekking. Let me know if you want to do it.

Also look in Google Images for Pedra da Tartaruga.

Hope to see you soon!

For me that's ok. I'll be home, so nothing better than a good trekking with a beautiful beach waiting at the end. hehe Hope the sun stays as it is now.

I'll go with my car, but the beach where we start the trekking you can easily reach by bus from Center. At Largo da Carioca, in Rio's Downtown, you take the bus 387 - Carioca / Restinga da Marambaia and drop off the bus at the final bus stop. We can meet there.

Please, confirm until next week who is going. :)

See you there!

Yolanda, você pode até ir no meu carro, mas eu moro tão longe que o tempo que você levaria até a minha casa seria o tempo de ônibus até a praia. hehe Na verdade eu moro (mesmo que ainda longe) mais pra perto da praia pra onde vamos.

Se mesmo assim quiser ir comigo, beleza. Pode até dormir aqui em casa se quiser.

hi rafael

will you go to the picnic in Ipanema this evening?
we can talk about it there.

I was planning to do asa delta with artur and other CSpeople this sunday, but finally he has canceled it...

so if you have no plans for this sunday we can do your plan or maybe it will be great if you know where to do asa delta as well.

now i have no plans for this sunday.

let me know.

Posted January 30th, 2010 - 1:44 am by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
I don't know anything about asa delta... And for this sunday I'll be hosting a belgian couple, so first I have to see what they want to do.

Posted January 31st, 2010 - 8:12 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)

gabriel

Posted February 1st, 2010 - 1:00 am by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
This bus you have to take, 387 - Carioca / Restinga da Marambaia, is not so often, so maybe you'll wait a bit for it. Also, I don't know the specific place of the final stop of this bus in the Center. We can meet at the final bus stop of this bus there in Barra de Guaratiba around 10am, is that ok?

So, to be at Barra de Guaratiba at 10am you have to take this bus around 8am or 8:30am maximum!

We keep on talking...

Preciosa, tenta descobrir os horários desse ônibus e também onde é o ponto dele na Carioca. A empresa que opera a linha é a Pégaso, então se vc ligar lá e perguntar eles devem dizer certinho como fazer.

And this is my cel phone, for any case: 8267-3552

Posted February 2nd, 2010 - 7:48 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
We could've gone during the last days... It was (and still is) sooo hot!!!

Hope next saturday it'll be ok.

Posted February 3rd, 2010 - 5:36 pm by from Enschede, Netherlands (Permalink)
if the plan is still on; i'd like to go trekking this weekend, so if i could join you it would be great.

Posted February 3rd, 2010 - 6:56 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
Of course you can join us. I'll be going to this beach anyway, unless it begins to rain. So, if it rains the trekking is cancelled. If not, it's on!

Posted February 4th, 2010 - 2:36 am by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
hey guys!
@fernanda: we will take the bus from carioca, around 8. so if you wanna go with us let me know , and we will settle a meeting spot.

É no sábado sim, Tingting.

My phone doesn't make calls, so I can just receive them. Call me if something happens. And please try to find out where is the stop of this bus in Carioca, because I have no idea! We will meet in the final stop of the bus there in Barra de Guaratiba, ok?

I'll be there waiting around 10am.

Posted February 4th, 2010 - 4:32 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
i know where the bus is going from, so no problem.
yep, lets meet at the final stop. how long will it take us to the beach?
hopefully we will be on time, i will let you know if you would have to wait some more minutes
greets

Posted February 4th, 2010 - 5:15 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)

Gabriel is right, you must meet at Carioca to take the bus 387 at 8am.

The bus shall take around 1h30min to 2h to reach the final stop in Barra de Guaratiba where I'll be waiting for you.

Any more questions?

Posted February 5th, 2010 - 3:59 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)

Posted February 5th, 2010 - 4:11 pm by from Enschede, Netherlands (Permalink)
ta bom, claro.
o numero do meu celular é 8263-5081

Posted February 5th, 2010 - 6:17 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
IMPORTANT

The bus 387 is rare and I called the office this morning and they told me the bus goes out every 2h, so you must not lose the one that goes out at 8am, so be there at Largo da Carioca around 7:30am!!!

The stop of this bus is at Avenida República do Paraguai, close to the Cathedral. So, please look around there.

If anything happens and you miss the bus, call me. Unfortunately if you miss it, you won't be able to meet us at the beach tomorrow. :( So, wake up early!!!

Posted February 5th, 2010 - 6:56 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
So... the important info is:

Meet at Carioca at 7:30am, if you don't you will lose the bus and the other will go out at 10am!!!

In case you miss the bus, call me!!! I'll be woken up after 7am.

Tô com preguiça de passar as fotos. hahaha Mas assim que passar eu coloco aqui o link.

Cara, bem que podia nevar aqui só pra dar um refresco! rs Boa viagem!

Olá pessoal.

passando rapidinho pra dar uma comentada.
Também gostaria de ver fotos. sempre ouvi falar da praia do Perigoso, mas por falta de companhia e nao saber ao certo onde era nao tinha conhecido...

infelizmente tinha compromisso dia 6 e por isso nem postei nada.

como sou novo nao me senti a vontade para abrir um tópico novo, mas gostaria de perguntar aos trilheiros se alguem tem intençao de subir a pedra da Gávea. é uma trilha que adorei, mas nao tenho corda pra passar pela Carrasqueira rs...

um abraço a todos
