Day 1: Arrival in Rio de Janeiro and transfer to your hotel. Famed for its breathtaking beauty, Rio is undoubtedly one of the most attractive cities in the world. Rio’s temperate climate makes it even more enticing, attracting people to perennial favorites such as: Corcovado mountain, where the statue of Christ the Redeemer stands proudly, arms outstretched and watching over the city; Sugar Loaf mountain offering stunning views of Rio; and the characteristic beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon and São Conrado.
Day 2: Sugar Loaf Mountain and City tour. After departing from the hotel, the tour makes its way to the bottom of Corcovado Hill, where you will ascend the mountain by train. Climbing 4km through the world’s largest urban national park, the Tijuca Forest, the train arrives at the statue of Christ the Redeemer. After some time with the panoramic views you will continue to the Maracana Stadium, Sambadrome, and the Metropolitan Cathedral, before passing through the bohemian neighbourhood of Lapa and its famous arches en route to Copacabana. You will have a traditional Brazilian BBQ lunch before visiting the famous Sugarloaf. After descending, passengers will return to their hotels. Hotel pick-up between 08h and 9.30.
