Sugarloaf Mountain

img_8960The visit to Sugarloaf Mountain was my highlight of a recent trip to Rio. The iconic shots of Rio over the years always include either Christ the Redeemer or Sugarloaf. We chose the golden ticket which allows you to bypass the queues and even enjoy a glass of bubbly whilst waiting.

The large aerial car lifts you up from Urca and plants you at two different stops along the way. The views are to die for ………… a cliche I know but it’s true.

The day we visited we were able to get great views in all directions from the foot of the mountain across to Copacabana, taking in the sliding favelas, the bobbing boats in the marinas and Christ the Redeemer. If I went back this is one attraction that I would repeat in a heartbeat.
