Wherever you venture on holiday, you are always at risk of experiencing accidents abroad that could potentially form the basis of a travel accident compensation claim.
Before you travel, be it to Brazil or any other destination, it is important to read up on health and safety information regarding the area to minimise the risk of holiday-related accidents, injuries, and foreign illnesses.
Spotlight on Brazil’s Sugarloaf Mountain
Nestled at the mouth of the Guanbara Bay in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, the world famous Sugarloaf Mountain offers tourists stunning, panoramic views, which stretch across the entirety of Rio and out over the Atlantic Ocean. It is it believed that the mountain was given its name due to its likeness to a sugarloaf.
- Sugarloaf Mountain action and activities
With a height of 396 metres, the Sugarloaf Mountain and its two surrounding mountains form one of the single largest urban climbing areas in the world. Tourists visiting the mountain can either take in the awe-inspiring views, absorbing the sights of Rio from the superlative spot in the city, or, for the more adventurous, there are rock climbing facilities available, whether you wish to participate or observe the action.
- Sugarloaf Mountain transport
Reaching the summit of the mountain requires an adrenaline-fueled trip via two cable cars.
First, you must ascend the smaller Morro da Urca, and then embark the second cable car, which takes you up to the summit of Sugarloaf. All the cable cars are specially designed to offer 360-degree panoramic views during the three minute ascent from foot of the mountain to the peak. With lots of climbing, travelling and perhaps even adventure sports on the cards, it is important to remain vigilant while visiting the Sugarloaf Mountain, to help avoid preventable accidents on holiday, such as slips, trips and falls.
