This abseiling tour starts on the Pista Claudio Coutinho walking trail in the Urca neighbourhood. An experienced guide will lead you up the path until you arrive at a plateau where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Guanabara Bay and downtown Rio de Janeiro. You’ll also have the chance to see the exotic fauna, particularly the various local monkeys and their offspring.

From the summit of Urca Hill, you can take the cable car up to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, reaching 396 metres above sea level. From Urca Hill, on the level of the first station of the cable car, you’ll start your rappel activity, along a slanted rock surrounded by forest.

This tour has two departure times: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. If you book the afternoon tour, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the sunset from the top of Urca Hill, enjoying one of the most beautiful images of the city.
