While your cruise ship is in port, visit the Christ the Redeemer statue on the top of Corcovado Mountain during this half-day tour. Reach the top of Corcovado Mountain by cog train through the Tijuca Rainforest, an urban forest located just 10 minutes outside the center of Rio. This 5-hour tour, which includes round-trip transportation from the cruise port, allows you to see Rio's most famous sight and still have time to explore on your own.
After pickup from the Rio cruise ship port, meet your tour guide and board your vehicle for the trip to the Cosme Velho station.
Climb aboard the cog train and ride through Tijuca National Park's rainforest to the top of Corcovado Mountain. Enjoy the steep journey through the dense Atlantic forest, watching out for local wildlife along the way.
When you reach the top of the mountain, spend about an hour there. Marvel at the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue and enjoy views out over Rio and its surroundings. Your guide will provide engaging and informative commentary about the history of the site.
After descending the mountain, explore Pepino and São Conrado beaches, where you can watch surfers and hang gliders take advantage of the tropical wind and waves.
At the end of your 5-hour tour, enjoy drop-off back at the cruise port.Worry-free Shore Excursion:
