Description

Get picked-up from your hotel in Rio and be prepared for an exciting tour of the Corcovado Mountain. Enjoy the stunning views over the beach and learn about the city's past and present history along the way.

Stop at the stunning Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon (except on Sundays), and hear about the gorgeous and quiet Botanical Garden before heading to Laranjeiras.

On the way to Cosme Velho, you will see the typical carioca lifestyle, with its many options for open-air activities, restaurants and the famous paddleboats. There, you will take the Rack Railway at the bottom of Corcovado Mountain, and enjoy an exciting 20-minute ride through the dense Tijuca rain forest which is considered as the largest urban forest in the whole world.

Finally reach the very top of the moutain by lift or by stairs (222 steps), and get to see the legendary 38m tall (125ft) Christ Redeemer Statue. You will be blown away by the spectacular views and the imposing sacred statue, now listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. With a panoramic view from the top, your guide will show you the spectacular sights of Rio and the surrounding countryside for approximately 40 to 60 minutes.

After riding the train back down, you'll be returned to your hotel and learn more about Rio's economy and local lifestyle.
