Once at the top, you will be able to see the Guanabara bay area, downtown Rio, Niteroi city across the bay, as well as the neighborhoods of Botafogo, Flamengo, Copacabana and ipanema. Our guide will explain to the group about all the historical aspects of the place, as well as showing the spectacular views of the city.

This was one of my “must do activities” in Rio, walking up Sugarloaf! This trip did not disappoint, it was a difficult hike, with a small section of rope work required to get to the top. The guide was very informative with a very good level of English and went at the slowest pace with rest stops on the way. This is not a trip for the unfit nor for anyone not prepared to crawl at points on all fours and climbing. It is a steep route with drop offs so not being afraid of heights will help! Arrived at the top in time for a beer and to watch the sunset over Rio before descending in the cable car to the lower cable car station and walking back down the lower path. Highly recommend!
