What you'll do

Forget about the cable car to get at the top of Sugar Loaf. This is the best way to experience this unique mountain! You'll remember forever! We will meet at General Tiburcio Square, in Urca, near Praia Vermelha. From there we start the walk along the famous Cláudio Coutinho lane, which borders the entire south face of the Urca and Pão de Açúcar hills. It is about 1.25 km of asphalt until the trail begins. From there the walk is steeper, past rocky coastlines and belvederes that allow a stunning view of the Guanabara Bay. In the middle of the way we come across a vertical rocky stretch (around 15m), where we will use climbing equipment to pass. After that, a walk through the vegetation leads us to the top of the mountain, from where we will rest enjoying a magnificent sunset as a reward! The descent of Sugar Loaf is made by the cable car towards Morro da Urca. There, we will walk for about 20 minutes to return to the Cláudio Coutinho lane, where our tour ends. Obs: This activity depends on good weather conditions. If there is a possibility of rain, the experience can have its schedule modified or, still, have your day rebooked without additional cost. Obs2: In case of impossibility (medical or technical) on my part (Gabriel), another Professional Guide will be suggested, as well as the approval of the guest(s), maintaining the level of safety and quality of the expe
