Sugar Loaf Mountain Climb

Sugar Loaf Mountain Climb, Brazil

This half day shared excursion provides an exiting and unusual way to visit Rio's famous Sugar Loaf Mountain whilst avoiding the crowds of tourists so often associated with the place.

You are taken to the car park where you would normally take the first leg of the cable car up the mountain. Instead you will stroll along a beautiful shoreline pedestrian path, popular with walkers and joggers. This is followed by a weaving hike up a trail with wonderful views of Rio's bay followed by a short (approximately 25m) but challenging section of rock climbing.

At the top you'll be able to enjoy the fantastic and well earned views of the city and its bays before taking the cable cars back down to your vehicle.
