Rio de Janeiro is a city that's definitely not lacking in sights. How about a trek or a cable car ride up Sugarloaf Mountain to get an eyeful? Here are some of the best things you can see.
Christ the Redeemer is considered the guardian of the city and the perfect view is from Sugarloaf. If you want to stand at Christ's feet, go up Corcovado Mountain.
Visible from the top of Urca Hill, Sugarloaf's little sister, Guanabara Bay is a stunning expanse of blue.
A panoramic and unbelievable view of Rio's Copacabana beach awaits you at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Rio's biggest park is an expanse of emerald if you look for it from on top of Sugarloaf. Back down on earth, you can check out its Olympic Park and the Museum of Modern Art.
Summer can reach extremely hot temperatures, so autumn is probably a comfortable hiking temperature.

What People Are Saying About Sugarloaf Mountain
The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He was able to answer all my questions satisfactorily. The tour itself was everything I hoped it would be and more. Would recommend to anyone visiting the city.
It would have otherwise been difficult to go around Rio on our own. Our guide was knowledgeable about his city, friendly and readily answered our questions.
Steve was a well informed guide and was able to answer all questions we had about the city.
The only problem I had with the tour was on Trip Advisor it has said that Sugar Loaf was going to be done last so we could see the sunset. This was not true, Sugar Loaf was the first thing we did, then we had the bus tour which was great. I had told my friend who was living in Rio to meet us at Sugar Loaf during Sunset. I had to use the Tour Guides phone to call her and tell her we already did it and there is no need to come, kind of bummed me out. After the city tour we had lunch (should have ordered the fish, it looked great!) and then went to Corocovado. Fortunately we had a clear sunny day and were able to see the Christ perfectly! Overall the tour was very educational, fun, and I would recommend this tour if you are staying in Rio for only a short period of time like we did (1 week) you are able to see and learn many things.
I would not normally choose this kind of large group tour on a coach, but as I was by myself with just one free day in Rio at the start of a business trip, it was a great option to see the most famous sights easily and safely. Our guides for both halves of the tour were excellent, friendly and with lots of local knowledge. The pace of the tour was good and I never felt rushed, with plenty of time to take photos or just enjoy the views. Lunch was surprisingly good, considering it was at a restaurant that clearly caters almost exclusively to the tour group trade. The only negatives I can think of were that the drinks at lunch (even water) were stupidly expensive - i.e. hotel minibar prices - and that the operator could be clearer about which hotels are in their pickup area, as it turned out that mine wasn't. This wasn't really a problem, it would just have been good to know it sooner. Overall though, a great tour and definitely recommended.
