You will be picked up at your accommodation in Centro, Copacabana, Leme, Ipanema, Leblon and other locations in Rio de Janeiro’s south zone. Please inquire about other locations. Start early in the morning and take the cog train up Corcovado Mountain (see prices here). The trip through the Tijuca Forest lasts about 20 minutes. Once we reach the top you’ll have about 40 minutes to behold Christ the Redeemer statue as well as Rio’s south and north zones from 710 meters above sea level. Additional time can be added if requested. The Art Deco statue was completed in 1931. It’s made of reinforced concrete and soapstone. The statue itself is 30 meters tall plus 8 meters for the base and it was voted one of the new seven wonders of the world.
Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (Lagoon), Botanical Garden (more manicured) and/or Lage Park (more like a forest and sometimes capuchin monkeys can be found).
Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana.
You will be dropped off at your accommodation at the end of the tour.
