7,392 Reviews

It’s easy to see why Rio de Janeiro was nicknamed the “Marvelous City” when you’re gazing down at it from the heights of Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Açúcar). From its soaring 1,300-foot (396-meter) summit, the city unfolds around you, with views of the iconic Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, the Tijuca Forest, and the Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor) statue standing tall atop Corcovado Mountain to the west.

Climbing Sugarloaf, rather than taking the cable car up, is one of the most rewarding things you can do while in town. You can experience one of a kind rock climbing adventure, while also visiting one of the most famous tourist attractions in town. It is common for us to hear that it was the highlight of the trip. Our international team of guides come from varied backgrounds and are some of the most experienced and best reviewed guides in the city. We have over 15 years of experience guiding clients from all of the world and while safety and professionalism are always our priority, we also make a point of creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We enjoy getting to know people and sharing our experience of living in Rio. Often times our conversation strays from the typical topics of local history or geography, into more complex subjects like politics and culture. We want people to get an idea of the complexities of this amazing city, while also enjoying a great climb.
