There's a lot of birds in Rio flying high in the sky. Do you want to see this marvelous city from such heights as well? Then take a 20-minute walk from Ipanema up to Pedra Bonita Mountain and try hang gliding. The flight is tandem, so you ​don't need any experience. All you need is an ID, some comfortable clothes, and a smile. The flight usually lasts 2-4 hours, so you hav​e just about enough time to explore and enjoy the city from above. The best weather and time for hang gliding is from December to March and from July to August.
