After early morning pickup from your chosen Rio de Janeiro meeting-point, travel directly to Corcovado Mountain by minivan.
Upon arrival at the mountain, enjoy the relative quiet as you stand as one of the first visitors of the day, and then climb 220 steep steps or ride the elevator offering panoramic views. Reach the summit, 2,300 feet (700 meters) high, and behold the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer (or Cristo Redentor). Learn from your knowledgeable guide the history behind the art deco statue, which was unveiled in 1931 and named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. Built with concrete and sandstone, the hovering and protective Christ stands 130 feet (39 meters) tall, his arms spanning 98 feet (30 meters).
With this Exclusive, your early visit to Corcovado allows you to explore the site before the rest of the public, most of whom travel to the statue by cog train. Spend a leisurely 30 minutes here, with no need to elbow your way around to get that perfect shot until the first train of the day arrives. Whether the day is sunny or cloudy, you'll capture mesmerizing views of the city and beaches.
Your tour ends with return to the meeting-point, unless you choose to upgrade to the optional tour below.
Optional Sugar Loaf Mountain Tour: Locals and tourists alike differ in opinion on which mountain offers better city views, Corcovado or Rio's other famous peak, Sugar Loaf. It is undisputed, however, that each provides a unique experience.
After visiting Christ the Redeemer, travel by minivan for about 30 minutes to a peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean. Arrive at the base of Sugar Loaf and jump into a glass cable car. On your way up, make a brief stop to marvel at sweeping views of the city, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, Guanabara Bay and Corcovado Mountain. Then ascend to the top of Sugar Loaf, 1,299 feet (396 meters) high, for views of Copacabana Beach, the Santa Cruz Fortress and the beaches of Niteroi. Then we will have a typical brazilian lunch.
After a day full of memorable sights, enjoy transport back to the meeting-point.
Exclusives combine unique experiences and great deals — from traditional tours to once-in-a-lifetime experiences — and are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.
