To brighten up the tour, it is very common to see typical birds of the region, such as spoonbills, biguás (cormorants), herons, red guarás (maned wolves), punches and, with a little luck, porpoises will accompany the boat.
‒ Take the opportunity to learn more about the history, curiosities, fauna and flora of the places visited. The tour is accompanied by an official tourist guide, who will make your experience richer.
ABOUT THE TRAIN RIDE
The stretch of railroad that connects the capital of Paraná to the coast goes through the Serra do Mar. The construction work of this railroad was started in 1880 and was considered a great challenge for the engineers of the time.The route begins in Curitiba at 934 m above sea leveland crosses the largest continuous area of preserved Atlantic Forest in Brazil. This forest is considered one of the five richest biomes in the world.
This journey is frequently cited, by Brazilian and foreign experts, as one of the most beautiful railway rides in the world! It is a contemplative trip and the guide on board explains the whole history of the construction of the railway and curiosities.
The tour may be delayed due to logistic reasons of the railroad.
