Perfect for those in need of a little adventure, this thrilling climb will take you to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain, one of the most recognisable sights in Rio de Janeiro. This is the perfect way to avoid the queues and crowds of people taking the cable car, and offers fantastic views as you make the ascent.

Accompanied by an experienced climbing guide you will begin the steep hike to reach the top. The climb is the most challenging part of the journey, with 10 metres of rock face to scale, but you will be provided with all the necessary guidance and safety equipment. Once you reach the top you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Rio, across the lagoons and forested mountains that make this such a picturesque city. After soaking it all in, take the cable car down to Morro da Urca where you will take a short hike down to Praia Vermelha where a vehicle will be waiting. This is the perfect way to challenge yourself and enjoy the city from a unique perspective.
