On this Full Day Tour, you will get to know the largest canyon in Latin America, located in the Aparados da Serra National Park, in the city of Cambará do Sul. In the beautiful setting, which was used for the filming of the miniseries “Casa das Sete Mulheres”, you will witness the beautiful millennial basaltic stroke, approximately 700 meters deep and six kilometers long. Two easy trails through the edges allow to see the walls covered by Araucaria: the Vertice (3km, 45 minutes, round trip) and the Elbow (6km, two hours, round trip).
The Cotovelo (Elbow) trail is 6.3 km long (round trip) on a completely flat path, with a walk that takes an average of 2:30h (round trip).
People of all ages can take the Elbow trail, which starts at the park's headquarters. Most of the path is made by an old park road, the rest of the path is made by the edge of the canyon.
Arriving at the first viewpoint, it is possible to see the classic image of the Itaimbezinho walls. Then the trail continues to follow the canyon where you can see views from other angles, with emphasis on the Elbow, which gives the name to the trail.
The Vertice Trail also starts at the park's headquarters, on a shorter route, 1.4 km long. It takes an average of 45 minutes of walking (round trip) and the level is easy and can be done by people of all ages.
Along its route there are lookouts where it is possible to see the Cascata das Andorinhas, a fall of approximately 200 meters high. The fall is formed by Arroio Perdizes which later becomes the Boi River and cuts through the rest of the canyon.
In the second viewpoint it is possible to see the Véu da Noiva Waterfall, with a fall with 289 meters high. Its waters are formed by Arroio Preá, which helps in the formation of the Rio do Boi, a river that flows at the bottom of the canyon.
At the third viewpoint, you can see the two waterfalls and the beginning of the Itaimbezinho Canyon, which is in the shape of a vertex and gives rise to the name of the trail. At the end of the trails, it's time to replenish your energy with a tasty picnic.
