Climbing, hiking and scenic views
Morro da Urca is one of the most popular destinations for scenic views and hiking. You’ll find it near Morro Cara de Cão, beyond Botafogo beach. The 215 high Morro da Urca is also very popular among mountain climbers who enjoy the challenge of the sheer side of the hill.
For less experienced hikers the best trail on Morro da Urca would be the one that goes up to the first cable car station of Sugarloaf.
