Return Details

Returns to original departure point
With this Viator Exclusive, your early visit to Sugar Loaf Mountain allows you to access the site before the majority of the public. From a height of 1,299 feet (396 meters), capture frame-worthy photos of the city and its beaches during approx. 90 minutes of tranquil city gazing before making the descent. Your guide points out landmarks of interest and historical background along the way. 

Enjoy pickup from your Rio de Janeiro hotel, and travel by air-conditioned minivan to Sugar Loaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar), located on a peninsula overlooking Guanabara Bay. From Praia Vermelha at the base of the mountain, hop into a glass-enclosed cable car that stops at Morro da Urca (Urca Hill). Step out to soak up incredible city panoramas, Guanabara Bay, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, and Corcovado Mountain in the distance capped with the famous Christ the Redeemer statue.

Board another cable car to reach summit of Sugar Loaf for additional views including the Santa Cruz Fortress, the beaches of Niteroi, Botafogo Bay, Ipanema and the iconic Copacabana Beach. Take pleasure in the relative quiet as you stand as one of the first visitors of the day.

Your tour ends with easy transport back to your hotel.

Viator Exclusives combine unique experiences and great deals — from traditional tours to once-in-a-lifetime experiences — and are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.

Of all the tours we did in Rio, this was the biggest waste of money. Like the Christ the Redeemer "early access" you get no special privileges, you are simply going early. Get yourself to the base of sugarloaf and save your money for other things.
