Private Sugarloaf Mountain and Tijuca Forest Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    After you are picked up from your hotel, the airport (additional cost), or your desired location around 8am, you will make your way to one the most famous attractions in Rio, the outstanding Sugarloaf Mountain. Hop into a cable car and observe in amazement as you ride up the peak, which reaches nearly 1,300 feet. During this time, you’ll have the opportunity to take in some of Rio de Janeiro’s most breathtaking geography such as Guanabara Bay, the city of Niteroi, and the crystalline blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Afterwards you will make your way over to the Tijuca Forest.
    Here you will be able to see spectacular mountainous views from Vista Chinesa as well as beautiful waterfalls such as the Taunay waterfall. Take some time to stop by the Visitor center and then continue through the forest. If you look closely, you may witness some unique animals in their natural habitat, including Saguis and Capuchin monkeys, toucans, hawks, frigates, quatis (Brazilian raccoon), and numerous exotic plants. As the tour comes to an end, you will be returned back to your original departure point.
    This tour will spend about 2-hours at each attraction and about 1-hour for travel time approximately. A booking of 1 to 4 travelers will be transported in a private car with air conditioning and heat. A booking of 4+ travelers will be transported in a larger van. Lunch is optional (at the customer’s own expense) and a stop at a local restaurant can be made.
