Be one of the first visitors to reach the Christ the Redeemer statue, on top of the Corcovado Hill, without the usual crowd early in the morning. After the pick-up we will start the tour to Corcovado Hill (704m) from Copacabana beach. We will drive along Botafogo beach passing by the Guanabara Palace, the official residence of the State Governor, on route to Laranjeiras and Cosme Velho districts, where you will be able to appreciate the old Coffee farm homes of the 1800s. The tour will reach Tijuca Forest with a stop at Paineiras to board the official vehicles of the National Park Authority. The visit to the monument will last around 45 minutes.
Remark: In case of poor visibility on the summit of the Corcovado, we will make an alternative stop at the look out point, Mirante Dona Marta (362m), generally less affected by cloudiness.
On the way down, en route to Sugar Loaf, we will see Largo do Boticário and Casa dos Abacaxis which are relics of the Brazilian Empire. We will continue along Botafogo beach towards Praia Vermelha, in the district of Urca, passing by the imposing neo-classical buildings of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, the Institute Benjamim Constant for the blind and the National Institute for Mineral Resources reaching the almost centenary Sugar Loaf cable-car station (the first service in South America and the world´s third oldest). We will go up to Urca Hill (200m) and to Sugar Loaf Mountain (395m) where we will stay around 30 minutes at the top.
