What You Can Expect

Rio de Janeiro Shore Excursion: Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour

Christ Redeemer Statue

The morning tour starts with a panoramic tour of downtown Rio where you'll pass by the infamous Sambadrome, the exhibition area for the renowned Samba schools in Rio. A brief stop is made at the Metropolitan Cathedral, made famous for its unusual pyramid shape. Admire its beauty and rareness from both the outside and the inside!

Your panoramic city tour continues with a visit to the traditional Cinelandia Square where you'll tour the various historic buildings such as the Municipal Theater, the National Library and the National Museum of Fine Arts. Head towards the Urca neighborhood, where one of Rio's most iconic symbols is located, Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Traveling up Sugar Loaf mountain on a cable car, you'll make a brief stop at a vantage point at approximately 700 feet (215 meters) above sea level. Capture unparalleled panoramic views of the city, Guanabara Bay, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Corcovado Mountain. You'll then ascend to the peak of Sugar Loaf for breathtaking views of Copacabana Beach, the Santa Cruz Fortress and the beaches of Niteroi.

You'll then enjoy lunch (included in the price) at a seafood restaurant before starting the afternoon portion of the tour. After lunch, you'll pass through the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas district (except on Sundays) on your way to the Cosme Velho train station. Enjoy a scenic cog train ride through the Tijuca rainforest up to the 125 foot (38 meter) iconic Christ Redeemer Statue. You'll spend approximately 45 minutes at the statue where you can capture once in a lifetime photo opportunities. After the train ride back down, you'll be dropped back off at the cruise ship pier.

If you go during busy season you must join a tour because they have your tickets ready and you basically get ahead of the first line. We came during NYE and it was CRAZY! Lunch was very good. The tour guides are very nice. We highly recommend visiting these key attractions with a group.
