Begin with a scenic drive to Sugarloaf Mountain. Upon arrival, board the cable car for a short ride up to Urca Hill, with its lovely gardens and views of the city below. After a short visit here, take another cable car to the summit at 1,300 feet above the sea. The views from the top are extraordinary. Continue to the cool confines of the Tijuca Forest, a quiet, green sanctuary away from the noise of the city. Comprising an area of 47 square miles, this once dense tropical forest was largely cut down in the 19th century to accommodate coffee plantations. A project of reforestation was initiated in the late 1800s with the planting of more than 100,000 trees. Today the park is a favorite spot to get away from the city's hustle and bustle. At Cosme Velho you will leave the coach and board the cog railway for the ride up to Corcovado, also known as Hunchback Mountain. As the train makes its way up the mountain, you will be riding through dense vegetation glimpsing now and again spectacular views of Rio. The 120-foot-high statue was completed in 1931 and stands at the top of the mountain with arms out stretched in welcome. To reach the top of the 120-foot-high statue, you will take an elevator and an escalator. Then, enjoy a traditional Brazilian Churrascaria lunch. On the return trip to the ship, drive through some of Rio's finest residential areas, around the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and past the Botanical Gardens, home to more than 5,000 species of tropical plants.
