The set of rocks is formed by two natural viewpoints: the Morro da Urca with 227 meters and the Sugar Loaf with 396. Access to the highest peak is made by the famous cable cars, also passing through Morro da Urca.

To get there, you have to go to Avenida Pasteur, 520 in the Urca neighborhood, where the cable cars leave daily from 8 am to 9 pm (the ticket office closes at 7:50 pm).

There are two ways to get to Morro da Urca, the first is to take the traditional cable car that has an entrance in front of Praia Vermelha. The second option is to walk along the charming Pista Claudio Coutinho that continues along the sea towards a well-closed forest trail. Then you can go up to the Sugar Loaf just using the cable cars that leave towards the imposing viewpoint every 20 minutes with a maximum capacity of 65 passengers.

Those who choose to do the trail pay only half the value of the cable cars. You can check the values on the company website. on here.
