Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Soaring more than 1,700 feet into the air, the Sugarloaf Cable Car connects Praia Vermelha (Red Beach) to Sugarloaf Mountain via a 2-part cable car ride. More than 37 million people have ridden the 65-person glass-enclosed cars since their opening back in 1912; they’re some of the safest cable cars in the world. They’re also the best way to enjoy 360-degree views of some of Brazil’s best sights, including the famed Dedo de Deus (God’s Finger), Ipanema and downtown Rio.
