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 have 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.
