What You Can Expect

Corcovado Mountain and Christ Redeemer Statue Half-Day Tour

Christ Redeemer Statue Half-Day Tour

After enjoying a leisurely morning in Rio, climb aboard a minivan at your hotel in the afternoon and get on the road to Corcovado Mountain.

You'll disembark at Cosme Velho station to take the cog train through the Tijuca Rain Forest.

When you reach the top, lace up your shoes and climb the 220 steps or opt for the easier route by riding the elevator. At the 2,300-foot (700-meter) summit, find yourself in the presence of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. Listen as your guide explains the history of the statue, constructed in 1931 from concrete and sandstone and named one of the Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. The statue's armspan is 98 feet (30 meters,) and it stands 130 feet (39 meters) tall. Spend half an hour admiring the statue and taking photos of the panoramic views of Rio.

Return to your Rio hotel for drop-off after this 4-hour excursion.

I had been up Corcovado mountain the day before this tour, but due to misty weather the statue wasn't very visible. Being an iconic landmark in Rio, I just had to go back up on a clear day - it was worth it!

You can see the Christ the Redeemer anywhere you are in Rio. Took the cog train to Corcovado Mountain. This is the best place to see in Rio de Janeiro!

This tour was amazing and I highly Recommend it to everyone. If your visiting RIo it's almost mandatory that you go see Christo Redentor. The best views of the city.
