A famous mountain that you have seen in many movies. Your trip to Rio isn't complete if you don't pay a visit to this mountain and a couple of other key figures of this city.

Christ theRedeemer and Sugarloaf are completely different You need to do both two different ways up as well If you go by tour you get priority load so when it’s busy it’s a wee bonus The cable is the way to Sugarloaf try to get to front going up as it’s amazing as you get close to the cliff face prior to the top it’s cool Amazing views over the beaches it blows you away both experiences are so different but so great By the way going down try get the view looking out to where your heading

Visited Pao de Azucar during our last trip to Brazil and views are amazing. We went there during the week and no lineups whatsoever. Place was not crowded and we had a great time drinking caipirinhas and enjoying beautiful view on Rio.

This was a great upward hike (good cardio) but you can take your time and god bless the person who though of putting benches at intervals! It takes some gumption to climb to the top off the mountain. We almost chickened out but got the courage after seeing so many coming back down... children with parents, more mature ones and realized it looked worst that it actually was. Just take your time and make sure you your foot placement is secure. Once on top the view does not disappoint. We even saw a guy repel down (Not recommended)! There are small loose gravel-like stones near the cliff edges, some people braved it, I just stayed back but still got some awesome views. I thought coming down would be worse but I actually thought it was much easier. We felt so accomplished that we did it. I now understand (a little) why people climb Mount Everest! Great experience, would definitely do it again.

Pick the nicest and clearest day of your stay and reserve it solely for Urca & Sugarloaf.

If your fitness allows it, pack plenty of water for a vertical hike up Urca Mountain. Bring your camera, sneakers and a few R$s for lunch at the top. If you’re lazy or pressed for time, pay for the round trip cable car.

We hiked up, took the cable car across to Sugar Loaf and then all the way back to the ground.

A quick hint: if you’re going to buy Havaiana flip flops as a souvenir during your trip to Brazil, be sure to shop for them in the outlet store at the top of Urca mountain. The selection is huge and prices here are nearly 50% cheaper than any other store we had seen.
