What you'll do

The meeting point is at Praia Vermelha, a small beach on Urca. We start the experience walking by the shore, on Claudio Coutinho path, the perfect place to get in touch with the amazing environment, full of small birds and monkeys. The path is flat and calm for almost a mile and lead us to an old fisherman trail on the west face of sugar loaf, a huge monolith inside the Guanabara bay. From this moment on, the trail starts to get really steep, with long sections of rock and a beautiful plateau, that will challenge the adventurers. We will finally reach the short (20 meters) wall, transposed with rock climbing equipment (ropes, harnesses etc, included). After that, a 30 minute hike to the top to finally contemplate the amazing view of this great city! The experience usually lasts 3 hours.

More tips

Important. Don´t forget to bring your sunscreen, shoes with good adherence, hat and sunglasses, specially during the summer. Light clothes and a light jacket (it´s windy up there). A sandwich is nice for a 3 hours activity, even with the fruits I usually take.
