What to Expect
Explore Rio on a combined city tour and helicopter flight, and marvel at icons like Sugar Loaf, Corcovado, and Copacabana from different perspectives.
Following a pick-up from your hotel, take a panoramic tour of Downtown Rio, passing landmark attractions such as the Sambodrome and Metropolitan Cathedral.

Then, transfer to Urca via the Aterro do Flamengo. Upon arrival in Urca, ascend to the summit of the Sugar Loaf Mountain by cable car. Stop at a vantage point on Urca Hill for beautiful views of Guanabara Bay and its islands. Look across the city and sea to the Rio-Niterói Bridge and Corcovado Mountain. Continue to the summit of the Sugar Loaf for splendid views of Copacabana Beach, the Santa Cruz Fortress and the beaches of Niterói.
Next, enjoy a formidable lunch in a barbecue restaurant before taking a 9-minute helicopter flight above Rio’s lagoon.
