DMC & Incoming Tour Operator to Brazil and all of South America BIT 25 Years

Corcovado

Your guide will pick you up at the hotel and transfer you to the Cosme Velho railroad station, crossing over to the traditional residential district of that same name. You will disembark and take a cogwheel train that will ride you up the 710 meters to the statue of Christ.

To reach the top of Corcovado Hill, the train crosses the largest urban forest of the planet. The Tijuca Forest is located at the heart of Rio de Janeiro and it separates the South and North zones of the city. The 20-minute ride gives you just enough time to prepare yourself mentally for what is waiting at the top. In the meantime, enjoy the lush scenery and take in some of that fresh mountain air of the Tijuca Forest. But keep your eyes open: every so often you can catch glimpses of Rio way below. 

 

Finally at the top of several flights of steps you are beneath the almost 40-metre tall statue of Christ with the whole of Rio at your feet. The entire city spreads out in a magnificent panorama during the day, glittering and magic after dark and always protected by Christ, the Redeemer, who blesses visitors and residents from on high. The spectacle is truly incredible. Return to your hotel via a panoramic road.
