Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain

  • English English
  • 6 hours

Climb up to the summit of Corcovado to admire the Christ the Redeemer statue up close and enjoy the spectacular views of Rio de Janeiro. On this tour, you will also visit the iconic Sugarloaf Mountain.


After collecting you from your chosen hotel, we will head to the iconic Corcovado hill.

When we have crossed the green and exuberant landscapes of the National Park of the Tijuca, we will arrive at the Christ the Redeemer statue and its observation deck. This spot offers some incredible panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro. From here, we will see the unmistakable circular shape of the Macarena, the most famous stadium in Brazil.

The sculpture of Christ the Redeemer is considered one of the seven modern wonders of the world. From this iconic location, you will have a bird’s eye view of the principal beaches of Rio de Janeiro - Ipanema, Botafogo, and most famous of all, Copacabana. The fine golden sand can be seen clearly from the Corcovado. This is one of the best points in Rio to take photographs. So don´t forget your camera to capture these spectacular views forever.

Our itinerary then continues with a cable car ride to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. This distinctive rocky peak is another symbol of what locals call the ‘carioca city’. It also provides an exclusive viewpoint over the bay of Guanabara which as the location for the sailing competitions during the 2016 Olympic Games.

The tour finishes back at the hotels of Rio de Janeiro.
