What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Early Access to Christ Redeemer Statue with Optional Sugar Loaf Mountain Tour

Visit one of Rio's iconic symbols, Sugar Loaf Mountain

Following pickup at your hotel in Rio, climb aboard a minivan at your hotel in the afternoon, meet your guide, and get on the road to Corcovado Mountain. You'll arrive there before most everyone else and have the opportunity to experience this famous landmark in peace and (relative) quiet.

When you reach your destination, 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 arm span is 98 feet (30 meter), 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, unless you opt to upgrade to the Sugar Loaf Mountain Tour.

Sugar Loaf Mountain Tour Upgrade:

Take this tour to settle the age-old argument between the Rio locals: whether Corcovado or Sugar Loaf offers better views.

Leaving Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado in your minivan, take a half-hour ride towards the Atlantic Ocean. Board a glassed-in cable car for to ascent to the peak, stopping once at a scenic viewpoint. Upon reaching the top of Sugar Loaf at 1,299 feet (396 meters) above sea level, admire the views of Niteroi, Copacabana and Santa Cruz Fortress.

Descend in the cable car and climb back aboard your vehicle for drop-off at your Rio hotel.

I definitely recommend this tour if you want to be the first ones up to see the Christ! We were picked up from our hotel on time and our tour guide Eliane was very friendly and informative. After we saw the Christ we headed to the Sugar Loaf Mountain with another tour guide Gill. He was very nice and knowledgable. I would most certainly book another tour with Amigo Tours!

Great tour! Guided by Solamon who was very friendly and informative. Was only a small group of us for the early morning tour which was great. It felt more like a private tour. Highly recommend Solomon for a tour guide. Nothing was too much trouble. Driver was very friendly and helpful too.

Even though it was a very rainy and foggy morning, our tour guide, Solomon, was great! He gave us plenty of time as a group, and to wander around on our own. We even got to see monkeys playing in the trees near the visitor center. A MUST SEE experience. Once in a life-time.
