Sugarloaf Rio Tourclassic rio: Sugarloaf Mountain & walking tour through Urca: rio's first neighborhood
Urca & Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açucar)
Our Sugarloaf Rio Tour is a spin on a classic Rio de Janeiro site: Sugarloaf Mountain! We lead you through the tiny backstreets of Urca, Rio’s first village and then drop you off in time for a sunset view on top of Sugarloaf.
We start by visiting Urca, a historical neighborhood off the tourist trail. It is a fabulous little part of town (the first place the Portuguese landed when they came to Brazil) where you have beautiful architecture from the Portuguese, German and French settlers, classic Brazilian bars overlooking the water and incredible back streets peppered with old churches alongside Guanabara Bay. We will end with a walk through Praia Vermelha (the red beach) en route to drop you off at Sugarloaf Mountain where you can enjoy a Sunset Happy Hour overlooking Rio. Not what you’re looking for?
