The Sugar Loaf is an absolutely must-go attraction in Rio, but it´s famous cable car is not the only way do get up there.
There is a trail in between the mountains and I can guide you thru it on an experience you will never forget.
We will walk among tropical vegetation and maybe see some exotic birds and cute little monkeys. The hike takes around 40 minutes. It might seem a lot to some people, but is possible (and totally worth it) even if you´re not a sporty kind of person. We can stop any time you want to breathe a little before we move on to the top. Either way, you´re gonna get breathless when you see the view from up there.
When the sun begins to set, we can take gorgeous pictures and see the city lights reflecting on the waters of Guanabara Bay, with Christ the Redeemer and that unique set of mountains on the background. I bet you will get back home knowing exactly why Rio de Janeiro is called The Wonderful City.
So are you ready to fall in love with Rio? Click on the request button and let’s go for our Sugar Loaf adventure.
Oh! Here are some important thinks you need to know:
- The park closes the trail gates at 19h30 pm. So if you wanna get back hiking down the mountain, we must start before that time.
- For R$20, we can get down by cable car. But the ticket office closes at 19h30 too.
- The cable car to the second level of the Sugar Loaf is not included on this experience.
• Some parts of the trail can get very slippery on rainy days. Considering it is sorrounded by a very dense vegetation, the soil takes a while to dry. So always check on the weather forecast to know the chance of rain on the day before and on the day you want to book the experience.
Hi! My name is Gabriela, I live in Rio de Janeiro and I would love to show you around. I decided to join Vayable because I never want to take Rio for granted. And, to me, there is no better way of doing that than seeing this awesome-messy-gorgeous place through the eyes of foreigners. This is a way for me to keep feeling grateful and blessed to live in this wonderful city or, as we like to call it, "Cidade Maravilhosa". I love the outdoors, Rio’s beach life, hikes and sightseeing but I’m also very into music, cultural hotspots and the simple daily pleasures of living in Rio. I’m sure we can have a very good time together. :) Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
