If you're going to see the Cristo Redentor, take the train up instead of a van or a car. It's worth it! Also, you can buy the tickets online on the trem do corcovado website (in any language) for R$75, which is cheaper than buying...More

The ticket price is 75R$ and you will receive a ticket for a certain time of the day. The trip takes like 20 mins to get to Corcovado mountain. The best views are on the right side of the train when going up. But the...More

The view from up the mountain is spectacular! The tram ride is ok as well! Only: We are a family of four. After queueing up, buying tickets for two adults at their office, waiting, and queueing up to enter the tram, i.e. in the very...More

Rode the cog train as part of a Gray Line tour. The train ride up the mountain was a very scenic ride through the Tijuca Forest. While there are other modes of transportation up to see Christ the Redeemer, I doubt they are as pleasant....More

This train leaves from the bottom of the Corcovado Hill up to the statue of Christ the Redeemer. Unfortunately there’s only one train per hour and it can get fully booked very quickly. We’ve been very lucky because one employee there traded our two tickets...More

When I was going up Corcovado this looked like the best option to go there for me. There are other ways but this probably is the most relaxing one. You buy your ticket and during the slow ride you can enjoy the view you have....More

The train is a great way to get to Christ the Redeemer Statue provided that you go early, to avoid the worst of the queues and the midday sun, and book ahead online to jump the queue. I unfortunately did neither, arriving at the ticket...More

What better way to get to Christ the Redeemer than to take the train. Before going, I had the concierge buy my tickets online. They told us to be there 15 minutes before because we all had set times. We arrived around 9am. The ticket...More
