For this RioLIVE!, we hiked to the top of Morro da Urca and then took the cable car from there to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. The views were spectacular, and the cable car was much appreciated after all those stairs! From the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, we could see Cristo Redentor overlooking the city as well as Praia Vermelha. We also got to watch several planes land on the Claudio Coutinho runway. There were lots of bathroom, food, and drink options along the way, and tons of great photo opportunities. Would definitely recommend!

Visiting Rio is special. So we spent a special Monday in a special place. Sugarloaf mountain was our destination for this and it couldn’t have been better. The weather was perfect and enhanced even the views and the experience. The hike to Morro da Urca was great too, nature and local fauna where little monkeys came to visit us. All of this combined with a nice ride with the cable car. A special Monday in a special place indeed!
