During this excursion we will hike to the summit of Rio de Janeiro's famous Sugarloaf Mountain. In 1817, British female adventurer, Henrietta Carstairs, made the first ascent up the Costão Route. Since then, it has been one of the most exciting adventures in town, which is still unknown by a large part of Rio's population. It is known as an introduction to mountaineering.

The most part of the hike is an ascent up the rocky steep mountain East Face. Mid way through there is a fun 15 meters / 50 feet roped rock climb. Don't worry, our rock climbing guides will provide all the safety equipment to enjoy this section with ease.

At the summit you will enjoy the city's best views: observe famous destinations such as Christ the Redeemer Statue, Copacabana Beach, Tijuca Forest and it's mountains, Rio's twin city Niterói and more.

To descent ride the famous cable car down (ticket included) to it's first stop (Morro da Urca). From there an easy and relaxed trail of 30 minutes takes us back to the Red Beach.
