Visit Rio De Janiero - virtually

Pretend you're on Rio De Janiero's famous beaches with this handy virtual tour!

Travel company Kayak offer an amazing virtual tour of Rio De Janiero and its surrounding areas so you can visit this wonderful city from the comfort of your living room.

The virtual tour means you skip past all the crowds as you marvel at the famous Christ the Redeemer statue.

The iconic statue was built between 1922 and 1931, designed by French sculptor Paul Landowski.

A huge 30 metres high, sitting eight more metres off the ground because of its pedestal, whilst the open arms stretch a huge 28 metres across.

Set on Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park, it looks over the city below and has become an international symbol of the Christian faith.

From here, also make sure you check out some of the most beautiful views of Rio. The views of the landscape really do go for miles and there is so much to see.

There is also a wonderful view of the iconic statue at night time, with the lights of the city brightening up the landscape below. The statue is fully lit too, shining over the whole of the city below, which would certainly be a sight to behold.
