This excursion will operate by coach, cable car and on foot. There are approximately 20 steps or a ten-minute walk up an incline at Sugar Loaf. Although there are now elevators and escalators available to reach the final summit of Corcovado, they may not, however, always be operational. Please be advised that due to the popularity of both highlights, especially at peak times, boarding of the train and cable car may involve a long wait, which is unavoidable. New restrictions are now in place regarding the purchasing of tickets for the cogwheel railway at Corcovado. In the event that your group is unable to ride the train, you will be transferred to the top of Corcovado mountain by minivan; this may be decided last minute. The highlights on this tour may operate in reverse order to avoid congestion and the tour duration may be extended due to possible heavy traffic. Space on this tour is limited, therefore booking early is recommended.
