Full description
Go all the way up to the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer by the Corcovado Train. The Train rides through a railway inside Tijuca National Park, the largest urban forest in the world, making a unique view over Rio de Janeiro city.

Enjoy an amazing ride on a train that takes you right up to the foot of the statue of The Christ, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and one of the most famous sights in Brazil. Besides admiring one of the most beautiful landscapes of the city, you will take a walk through Brazil's history. The Corcovado Railroad was the first electrified railroad in Brazil. Inaugurated in 1884 by D. Pedro II, it is older than Christ the Redeemer itself. In fact, it was the train that, during four consecutive years, transported pieces for monument’s construction.

Your visit starts on the century-old electric locomotive, riding across the preserved Atlantic Forest, part of the Tijuca National Park. At the foot of the statue of Christ, you'll be able to take in the most beautiful view over the city, and see from above what makes Rio de Janeiro so special.

The purchase on the website was quick, simple and without any interference. I bought it and on the same day I went to visit ... I loved it! I love these practical sites for purchasing tours and tickets, even if you don't even have to queue. They are to be congratulated.

I bought the tickets a day earlier than I needed and they sent me the confirmation with the tickets in less than 24 hours. Very well considering the high demand of the Christ the Redeemer. Upon arrival we had priority boarding on the train, and then the times depend on one.

On New Years Day it was very quiet so they allowed me to board the cog train early. They needed a print out at the information desk and they asked to see my passport. This is more than the Christ the Redeemer statue, it's also an amazing view of Rio from the top. I thought the view was better from here than from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. If I had purchased my ticket directly on the day from the ticket office I would have saved a tiny amount of money but would have had card fees etc. It was therefore better value to buy this in my home currency online from GetYourGuide.
