Climbinrio has been in the guided climbs business since 1990. We provide rock climbing guide services for all ages and abilities and our team of experienced local climbing guides is ready to take you on the best climbing experience Rio can offer. All our guides are passionate about climbing and about the mountains, and we enjoy the art of guiding and helping climbers achieve their goals.
We offer several different climbing packages from half day to multi day climbing trips covering all abilities from first timer to seasoned climber. Although made up of an international team of experienced and capable guides, we do not operate like a typical tourism company and do not wish to be seen as one. Our clients can expect more of a relaxed and friendly experience with us, than a formal and structured tour. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our local knowledge with them, giving them a chance to see the city through our eyes, and hope to treat our guests more like “friends from out of town” than clients.
Our goal is to have a good time while also offering a professional and safe adventure in the mountains of Rio. After years of providing guiding services to hundreds of clients from around the world we have learned that the most satisfying experience is when a friendship and comfortable atmosphere is created. All our guides are AGUIPERJ certified.
