Despite the tropical weather outside, Rio's kids are spoilt for choice with not one, but two ice-skating (patinação) rinks - one in the Barra Extra 24h supermarket and the other in Norte Shopping mall. Both find themselves situated smack in the middle of these commerical centres, albeit a little further afield from the beaches of Zona Sul, and as such act as the perfect creche while you tick off that all-important Christmas shopping list.

Both offer open practice sessions as well as lessons to teach the flashiest of tricks and artistic techniques for the more adventurous young'uns. To soothe the headache of birthday themes, they also offer birthday party packages - the perfect combination of recreational fun and exercise. So come inside, pretend it's not all that hot outside and let the kids burn up the ice rink.
