    Very cool. Mind saying how much the helo ride was just for future reference?

    Thanks. Unfortunately I don’t think helicopter rides are ever cheap, especially in a place like that, but looks like it was well worth it.

    It’s also worth hiking up to the first hill (Morro da Urca) from a path that starts northeast of Praia Vermelha. The trail leads up to a saddle between the two hills, and you go left to Urca (going to Sugarloaf itself requires climbing gear, and skill). It’s a short jaunt through tropical forest if you can’t make it out to Tijuca proper.
