ITINERARY

Embark on a unique experience where the contrast between nature and the city, seen from the sea, bring a broad and exclusive view of Rio de Janeiro. Start with a 360º view of Guanabara Bay with the beautiful beaches of the South Zone of Rio: Flamengo, Botafogo and Urca. Then, pass the Fortaleza de São João and Forte da Laje (historic forts in the bay) towards the first stop at Praia Vermelha. With a breathtaking landscape, enjoy a dip at the foot of Sugarloaf Mountain and take photos of the Sugarloaf Mountain Cable Car with Christ the Redeemer in the background.

Head to Copacabana, the most famous beach in the world, where you will appreciate every detail of the encounter between Copacabana and Leme before anchoring in the quiet waters of Copacabana Fort (Posto 6). After passing through Arpoador, your next stop will be at the Cagarras Archipelago - an environment protected area - where you will relax with a good drink and enjoy all the nature around you, far from the noise of the city.

On the way back, head to the Niterói region and pass by the beaches of Adão and Eva and the famous MAC – Museum of Contemporary Art designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer. Take a look at Santos Dumont Airport, where you'll be able to monitor landings and take-offs up close. Finally, return to the Urca pier. This tour includes insurance and option of round-trip transportation from the hotel.
