ABOUT THE TRAIN RIDE

It is considered as one of the most beautiful rail tours in the world by travel journalists and guides. It crosses 13 tunnels and bridges in the middle of the greatest area of Atlantic Rain Forest! You will be privileged to see all the green area: one of the richest biomas in the world. The railway between Curitba and Morretes is 68 km long (about 43 miles) and it lasts about 4 hours – the train goes slowly so that you can enjoy the landscapes.

The railway was built between 1880 and 1885 – so much history here! The guides on board (only in Portuguese) tell about the challenges of the construction – it is considered a master-piece of enginnering of the 19th century! The train tour is perfect to enjoy nature and to leave all-day routine behind.

4 reviews for Sunset Train Ride – tourist

  1. Thomas Gilpin

    Very good, even though we spoke English we understood the main instructions. However, was only due to a few kids on the bus being able to speak English. Could be worthwhile for you to print out an essential info sheet of paper or card with essential information (e.g. where the centre of town is and the times of the trains and where to get it from on map). Just so the trip can be enjoyed by English speaking tourists on a budget.

  2. Gabriel de Sousa Filho

    *Tour only in English*. It would be good to think about how to organize the boarding in Morretes better. The tour itself is great.

  3. Adriana Simões de Souza

    The best contemplative tour ever! It was such a great experience.

  4. Glauco Fiaschi

    Our guide in the train, Rose Marie, was exceptional in knowledge and education. The moment to pick up the tickets was confusing, but no further problems.
