Your day will begin with a drive to a part of the vast Tijuca National Forest, the largest urban forest in the world, a UNESCO Biosphere site that is an extraordinary destination for nature and ecotourism enthusiasts. You will go to the base station of one of the most famous landmarks on the planet: Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer Statue. Here, you will journey up Corcovado mountain overlooking the city to visit one the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Towering on a granite outcropping at 710 m (2,329 ft) over a breathtaking vista, the immense statue stands with arms wide open facing hauntingly dramatic Guanabara Bay, blessing all who visit the Marvelous City. Enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of what many consider to be the most beautiful city in the world.
You’ll go on an expedition up one of Rio's celebrated cable cars to visit Sugar Loaf Mountain for the most spectacular views of the city you will ever experience.  Located in the Urca area of Rio, your iconic cable car journey first takes in Urca Mountain (224 m/735 ft) and then proceeds to Sugar Loaf Mountain (395 m/1,295 ft). From there, you will feel like you are on top of the world as you absorb the breathtaking views of the city...Copacabana Beach...Guanabara Bay…the coastal mountains marching off into the distance...

After a ride back down to sea level by cable car, enjoy a guided tour of the most famous beaches in the world, Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon beaches, with stops for picture taking before heading back to your hotel for drop off.
