Since 1912, Rio de Janeiro changed its tourism map - nothing was the same after the launch of the Sugarloaf Cable Car (Bondinhos). The bondinhos coming and going up and down the mountain it is part of Rio's landscape. Combined with Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf is a key part of the character of the City.
Passing by the Guanabara Bay - it can be at the City Center, by Urca, Botafogo, Flamengo or Niteroi District, we see the astonishing curves of Sugarloaf bondinhos connecting with Urca Hill. This great idea to connect both hills and allow visitors to enjoy the view of Rio from the top came from a Brazilian engineer in 1907, and a few years later it came out of paper and was made reality!
Nowadays, the attraction is fully accessible during the day but also on some special nights for shows, concerts and events at Morro da Urca club. The highlight event for you enjoy the superb view from Rio night lights is the New Year's Eve party. Imagine celebrating the new year from the top of the Atlantic Forest Mountain, with colorful fireworks exploding right in front your eyes, listening to Brazilian songs and all those Carioca's vibes - yes, it makes me excited too!
Teadora's Founders, Valeria Cole, Tom Moran and their kids had a chance to visit SugarLoaf just a month ago and as always were completely enamored by the beauty of the "Marvelous City", seen from above.
In Val's words: "It's always breathtakingly romantic":
"One of my very favorite sites in the whole world... nothing like being able to share it with our beautiful baby girl"
If it is not in your bucket list... you should definitely add it. WE LOVE IT!!!!
