After breakfast at your hotel we’ll embark (08:00 – 09:00) on a half-day tour of Corcovado Mountain. We’ll board a cog train from Cosme Velho Station take a ride to Corcovado Mountain to visit one of the world’s most famous landmarks: the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer.
The 20-minute steep train journey takes us through the dense Atlantic rainforest of Tijuca, offering a wonderful opportunity for a closer look at the forest's lush tropical vegetation while enjoying scenic views of the beaches and the city. We’ll disembark at the top of Corcovado and then proceed up the steps that lead to the top lookout, where the towering statue of Christ the Redeemer stands – one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
