Rio de Janeiro is a city that's definitely not lacking in sights. How about a trek or a cable car ride up Sugarloaf Mountain to get an eyeful? Here are some of the best things you can see.
Christ the Redeemer is considered the guardian of the city and the perfect view is from Sugarloaf. If you want to stand at Christ's feet, go up Corcovado Mountain.
Visible from the top of Urca Hill, Sugarloaf's little sister, Guanabara Bay is a stunning expanse of blue.
A panoramic and unbelievable view of Rio's Copacabana beach awaits you at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Rio's biggest park is an expanse of emerald if you look for it from on top of Sugarloaf. Back down on earth, you can check out its Olympic Park and the Museum of Modern Art.
Summer can reach extremely hot temperatures, so autumn is probably a comfortable hiking temperature.

What people are saying about Sugarloaf Mountain
Bus arrived on time. Our guide Bruno was very clear and informative throughout the tour, taking photos for people / groups etc. We were given just about the right time to explore each of the sights given how much was packed into the day. Lunch was at a Rodizio and was excellent, well above what I expected. Minivan was very clean and videos were played about the next venue as we drove there, as well as Bruno pointing out landmarks as we passed by them. An excellent tour and good value for money.
Carlos Fernando (I think that is his name) was the most amazing tour guide. He was extremely polite, caring, and super knowledgeable about the sites, landmarks, and history of Rio and Brazil. He was very careful to always make sure the group was together - always counting the number of people in our group to ensure no one was missing. His ability to speak multiple languages (and VERY WELL) was a huge factor in making the tour a success for me. Carlos Fernando is the best of the best!!
A very well-run day and a great introduction to Rio. We managed to see everything we wanted, despite having to adapt the schedule due to cloudy weather in the morning. The guide Renato was very friendly and interesting, with perfect English and Portuguese. The lunch was fantastic at an authentic steakhouse next to Copacabana!
Leondre, which i dont know if im spelling right, was a fantastic guide. I'm not one for sitting around for tourist sites but it was the perfect amount of time for me. Not sure how leondre was able to keep up the Energy but he did somehow. It was a great day to me!!
It was a beautiful trip with highlights from Rio. Especially our guide , Renato, made the daytrip very interesting. He told much about Rio and spoke the English language very well.
