Sugarloaf Cable Car

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

When FORREC began designing the master plan for Sugarloaf Cable Car in Brazil, our primary goal became to change the way Sugarloaf Cable Car operates. We aimed for it to become the most integrated platform for sustainable tourism, media and entertainment in South America by 2025.

Our design approach sought not only to reduce negative impacts on the environment but to restore and re-balance the exuberant, natural setting of the Urca and Sugarloaf Mountains.

Having this premise in mind, FORREC’s team adopted a unique design philosophy of the three distinct levels of the project site and a solutions-based approach that also focused and targeted the client’s brand and identity.

The result is an awe-inspiring series of attractions for everyone from the intrepid adventurer, tourism groups and visiting families to the luxury-living VIP. Whether local or international visitor, the newly planned Sugarloaf Cable Car gives guests an experience unlike any other in Brazil. Guests can enjoy ziplining, the famed cable car ride, wellness zones and retail and dining experiences in one of the world’s most beautiful mountain zones.
