Experience Highlights

  • Duration: Half day

Visit Sugar Loaf Mountain known the world over as Rio's iconic postcard image. Sugar Loaf Mountain is reached on a two-stage cable car ride which takes 80 people per trip on a 2-minute ride per stage. The first stage, Morro da Urca - barely 170 metres high, has a restaurant, amphitheater, a helipoint and a privileged view of the Yacht Club and Botafogo Bay. The second stage takes one up to the Sugar Loaf - thus named because of the loaves of sugar that were commonly used by the Portuguese at the time of the discovery of the city. The all-encompassing view of this privileged 270-metre high lookout is unrivalled.
