The Basics

The largest art deco statue in the world, Christ the Redeemer is 130 feet (39 meters) tall with arms measuring 98 feet (30 meters) across. Just about every Rio city tour includes a stop here, with many combining a visit with other top attractions such as the Sugar Loaf Mountain cable car and Santa Teresa. Choose between hiking tours, city sightseeing tours, and half-day trips to the statue.

Full Day Sugar Loaf, Maracanã including Skip the Line Christ Redeemer By Train
Semi-private tour with very friendly guide and driver and one other couple - much easier than with a large van. Plenty of time at Sugar Loaf and Cristina Redentor. Did not see stadium (closed) but visited Selaron staircase.

Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Small-Group Tour
I had expectations and Vincent exceeded them. Eventhough it said small group tour, I didnt realize it was actually a private tour with just my friend and I. The driver was both professional and hilarious. Vincent did a great job educating us about the history and giving us plenty of time to soak in the amazing views. Great value for what we paid and I highly recommend this tour to anybody!

Full Day in Rio: Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Maracana and Selaron with Lunch
Superb tour with Tour guide Mr. Jalbier that brought me down memory lane of Rio with Brazil and Portuguese history and sight seeing all the colonial buildings from the old empire. Follow with a delicious Brazilian Chussaco lunch, then Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain. I really enjoy the tour organized by Viator and Jalbier. Thank you so much! Looking forward for my other tour in Brazil with Viator.

Christ Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain and Selarón Steps 6-Hour Tour
Was late for tour start and organizer was very accommodating. They do not pickup in Central hotels so compromises there also. I was able to see all the attractions as advised and guides were great

How to Get to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer

To reach the statue at the top of Corcovado, take the cog train or minibus from Santa Teresa. The train, which offers some spectacular views (especially if you sit on the right-hand side), leaves from the Cosme Velho train station at Rua Cosme Velho 513.

When to Get There

Opening hours vary seasonally, but the site is roughly open from 8am to 6 or 7pm. On a clear day, the views from the base of the statue include the beaches of Leblon, Copacabana, and Ipanema, Sugar Loaf Mountain, and Guanabara Bay. After dark, the statue is lit up and seems to hover over all of Rio. Expect heavy summer crowds; consider booking a skip-the-line ticket to save some time.

Visiting the Nearby Tijuca Rainforest

Regardless of how you reach the top of Corcovado, you'll travel through the Tijuca Rainforest, or Floresta Tijuca. One of the world's largest urban rain forests at 12.4 square miles (3,212 hectares), Tijuca is home to a variety of endemic Brazilian plants and animals. Before or after your visit to the statue, plan to spend some time exploring the attractions here.
