The Best of Rio in 4 Hours

  • January 7, 2015
  • J. Carlos Desales

The first part of the tour starts with statue of the Christ statue which stands in Tijuca National Park on the 2300 foot summit of Corcovado Mountain, which in Portuguese means “hunchback”, named in the 18th century for its odd humped shape. . On the second halph of the tour we’ll take the two-stage cable car up to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain – Pão de Açúcar – in the middle of the Guanabara Bay at 396 m (1.300 feet) above sea-level and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views. From here you can see Rio’s beaches to the south, and beyond, like Sugar Loaf itself, half a dozen granite monolithic mountains rising straight from the water’s edge.
