    While in line, be on the lookout for marmoset monkeys. They will come right up to you!

    Great view of the whole city! You can enjoy on 1st station; drink sth or have a breakfast before you go up

    Hike up to the first peak and then take the cable car back down after sunset. Fair warning that the lines can be long, so get started early!

    Amazing view
  • Frankie J. 😎 G.
    One of the iconic attraction of this amazing city: rising 396m above the sea, you can go up by taking two cable cars (about every 20min) and offers the most incredible view on the planet

    Must-see panoramic view from up there. Come before 10am, less crowded and less clouds as well;)

    Well worth taking the cable cars to see the crazy panoramic views. An experience not to be missed and you really don't need a tour. It's cheaper and you can spend as much time as you wish taking pics.

    great spot for photos - especially around dusk. the mountain Urca, next to it, is where you should get a helicopter ride around Açúcar and the beaches and around Cristo. well worth it.

    This place is a must if you come to Rio. Amazing view of the bay from the top. Nice bar and excellent place to take pictures

    While in Rio you must go to Sugarloaf Mountain. It has beautiful views of the entire city. It was so beautiful that we ended up being happy it wasn't a crystal clear day. Read more

    Awesome place and view! Try and arrive as early as possible to avoid big crowds in the cable cars and get the best shots at the top. A tip for foreign visitors: everything is way costy up there.

    It's interesting to go early in the morning so there are almost no one at the top and also you can take your break-first sitting at a table with a wonderful view!!

    Try to visit on both a sunny and a rainy day. Clouds and rain leave their own signature on the pretty Rio landscape (watching Cristo Redentor float into and out of sight behind the clouds is surreal).
