Full description
Venture by train through the Atlantic rainforest, with its unique flora and fauna, to the historic colonial town of Morretes, nestled at the foot of the Serra do Mar mountains in the state of Paraná. From your Curitiba hotel in the morning, you'll be shuttled along some of the best preserved rainforest in southern Brazil, to the foothills at the Serro do Mar where Morretes awaits. You'll explore the historic center of the town, strolling amidst the quaint 18th-century architecture, old colonial houses and churches, and through the craft market. You'll stop for lunch on the banks of the Nhundiaquara river to feast on the region's traditional Barreado, a meat-dish cooked slowly in a clay pot for several hours, then served over rice, with fruit, and a side of breaded fish. No Brazilian experience is complete without a taste of its wholesome cuisine!

The trip was fantastic. Only bad thing was this was supposed to be an english guided tour, but the guide was not speaking english very well. Most of the trip was guided in Portuguise, and only small parts in english.

Amazing train ride with wonderful nature and good explanations. Well organized and explained bus tour to Morretes and Antonina and amazing route back to Curitiba - however to me, the stop at the Hisgeopar was not worth it.
