Description

You will be picked up from your hotel at the beginning of the afternoon for a hiking tour to the Sugar Loaf.

This dramatic granite rock is not only a well-known Rio landmark but also an over-explored tourist attraction. Instead of standing in line to ride the aerial cable car with dozens of visitors, why not try a unique experience to reach the summit on your own feet?

You will start with a 15 minutes stroll along the beautiful shoreline pedestrian on Pista Claudio Coutinho before taking the 2:30 hours hike on a steep rocky trail on your way up the Sugar Loaf. Enjoy the wonderful views of Guanabara Bay and Niteroi city.

Then, the guides will provide you instructions and climbing equipment to face a 30 minute scrambling and about 80 feet (25 meters) of easy rock climb to the Sugar Loaf summit, perfect for a first experience. You are always supported by two bilingual climbing instructors who provide safety.

As a reward for our accomplishment, youwill enjoy one of the best views of Rio and have some time to relax at the top of the Sugar Loaf.

On the way down you will take the Sugar Loaf cable car to Urca Hill and hike an easy 30 minute forest trail back to the sea level.

You will be driven back to your hotel at the end of the hike.
