The tour leaves Curitiba hotels around 7:00am by bus and heads to the train station to get on board the train to Morretes City. You will travel through the centenary railway, built in the nineteenth century, inside the ecological reserve of Serra do Mar, in all its charm.
Take a historic train trip on the Paranaguá-Curitiba Railway, which had its inaugural trip made by Princess Isabel in 1884. The railway has more than 41 bridges, hundreds of pontoons, 13 tunnels and viaducts of great importance, such as Ponte São João and Viaduto do Carvalho among mountains and impressive valleys, adorned by rivers and waterfalls.
When arriving in the charming city of Morretes, you'll visit the historical side of the city with its colonial houses, craft Market and churches. You will also visit the Hisgeopar Park, which presents the history and geography of Paraná in miniature, all in motion! Following, you'll stop for lunch at the Nhundiaquara river banks to taste a Barreado (Traditional dish of Paraná). It consists of several cuts of beef slowly cooked over 12 hours on a clay pan. Manioc flour added with water is used to seal the pan, preventing steam from coming out. Once done the meat just falls apart. Served over rice and with sliced bananas, oranges and Manioc Flour. On the side, a Breaded Fish is also served. Simply irresistible.
At the end of the day, return by van to Curitiba along Estrada da Graciosa, one of the most picturesque in Brazil.
