About
One of the most beautiful attractions in Rio de Janeiro and one of the most famous in Brazil. Our mission is to take people to an enchantment, fun and entertainment journey – providing happy and unforgettable experiences as well as valuing Brazilian culture. We constantly invest in safety, comfort and innovative technologies. Our locations constitute natural, geological, historical, and touristic landmarks in the city of Rio de Janeiro. As a natural landmark, it reminds us of our reference to the sailors who come to Guanabara Bay. As a geological landmark, it reminds us of our geological site precisely dating the history of our planet. We also talk about historical landmark because on March 1, 1565, Estacio de Sa founded the City of Sao Sebastiao in Rio de Janeiro literally on its feet. And, finally, touristic landmark because the Cable Car opened on Sugarloaf projected Brazil’s name worldwide. It has been the first cable car installed in Brazil and the third in the world.

Top ways to experience Sugarloaf Mountain
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Urca
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”

The views are just breathtaking. Such a cool place with restaurant at the top and a little shop so you can spend hours here.

greatest place to visit in Rio together with Corcovado!
Sep 2021
Wonderful sightseeing! Worths the price of ticket (buy it in internet instead of there on counters!) Always use sunscreen 50 or 60! Be careful in the mountain trail inside the forest, specially in the rocks if you go there use special shoes like boots and not tenis!

A must if you visit Rio
Aug 2021
This place is so iconic and the view so breathtaking that is a must attraction if you visit Rio. The cost of the cable car ticket is a bit steep but well worth.

Solo to the top
Just a nice peaceful evening. Storms were coming in so the wind as the elevation got higher and higher was scary but exhilarating. The cable car worried me with all the wind but it was safe. Beautiful views and was such a great experience. Shops were closing down because it was late and the weather was clearly not the most optimal.

The famous sugar Loaf.
Aug 2021 • Friends
The best part which I am sure most agree with is going you the cable car. It's so cool and I found the second one even better. Also at the top, there was a ton of monkeys all around..I really ended it. Go for sunset..

A place like no other
Pao De Açucar is for me the heart of Rio De Janeiro. It combines all possible views and city aspects. On the one side you can see nature growing in various ways, on the other side humanity building communities which creates a one in a lifetime scenery. For me, the view from all stops combines the beauty of the city and it makes it irresistible for the tourists. As the crowds are quite high specially during sunset times, try to go on weekdays and go early so you dont miss to enjoy. There are multiple bars restaurants toilets in the place and the staff is very organized. Go!
