Rio: Christ the Redeemer Official Ticket by Cog Train

1. Rio: Christ the Redeemer Official Ticket by Cog Train

Go all the way up to the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer by the Corcovado Train. The train rides through a railway inside Tijuca National Park, the largest urban forest in the world, making a unique view over Rio de Janeiro city. Enjoy an amazing ride on a train that takes you right up to the foot of the statue of The Christ, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and one of the most famous sights in Brazil. Besides admiring one of the most beautiful landscapes of the city, you will take a walk through Brazil's history. The Corcovado Railroad was the first electrified railroad in Brazil. Inaugurated in 1884 by D. Pedro II, it is older than Christ the Redeemer itself. In fact, it was the train that, during four consecutive years, transported pieces for monument’s construction. Your visit starts on the century-old electric locomotive, riding across the preserved Atlantic Forest, part of the Tijuca National Park. At the foot of the statue of Christ, you'll be able to take in the most beautiful view over the city, and see from above what makes Rio de Janeiro so special.

Despite being a rainy day, I decided to go to the top. The company staff was nice and willing to change the ticket if I wished to. The weather turned bright for a few minutes when we reached the top - making it a great visit. The train ride was beautiful

Great experience. Definitely a good idea to buy in advance. Once you get to the ticket window they Just verify your information. (Identification). I would recommend this to see the views alone. Breathtaking views of the city!

Great option to get the ticket. Jumped the long queue and got straight on the train. A bit confusing when you are there but a great service. Recommend an early train for less queuing.

Cristo Redentor - when in Rio you must get up there and enjoy the view

no waiting, all very simple. the train and the unmissable Christ
