The Sugar Loaf compound, one of Rio's most famous icons, consists of two hills. The higher one is the Sugar Loaf (396m / 1030ft), and the lower is Urca Hill (220m / 722ft). 

The Costão Trail, which takes us to the top of Sugar Loaf, requires a quick climb (15m / 49ft), considered easy by the experienced and indicated for beginners. All safety equipments are included! 

The view of Copacabana Beach, Urca district, Guanabara Bay, Cristo Redentor and many more, is priceless. 

On our way down, we take the cable car to the Urca Hill (included) and then a short and easy trail back to the beach. You can schedule this tour in the morning or early afternoon.
