Board your private cable car and glide up to the Sugar Loaf summit. As you are lifted the landscape widens beneath your feet. Once at the top you will have a 360 degree view of the city and Guanabara Bay.
Your guide will tell you the story of the mountain’s name, which is linked to cane sugar, Brazil’s main export in early colonial times. And you will admire the sunset on the bay while sipping a caipirinha, the national cocktail made of fermented sugarcane juice.
If you want to be active, you can hike up the Sugar Loaf instead of taking the cable car. And remember that this isn’t the only Sugar Loaf experience a local travel designer can create.
