Enjoy a small-group tour to Christ the Redeemer statue early in the morning and then enjoy stunning views from Sugar Loaf Mountain. Your tour includes transport and a professional guide.
After early morning hotel pickup, you'll enjoy a tour of Christ the Redeemer without many of the crowds.

Before heading up, you'll reach Tijuca Forest, stopping at Paineiras to board the vehicles up to Corcovado. The visit to the monument lasts approximately 45 minutes. In case of poor visibility on the summit of the Corcovado, you will make an alternative stop at Mirante Dona Marta (362m), generally less affected by cloudiness.Then, you'll head to Sugar Loaf continuing to Botafogo beach towards Praia Vermelha, in the district of Urca, passing by the imposing neo-classical buildings like the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, the Institute Benjamim Constant for the blind and the National Institute for Mineral Resources. You'll get to the Sugar Loaf touristic complex to board the cable-car to rich Urca Hill (220m) and Sugar Loaf (396m), staying there for around 30 minutes at the top.
