The single-track line through the Serra do Mar is one of the highlights in Paraná. Opened in 1885 it was for the engineers one of the big challenges of that time. The track starts in Curitiba in934 mabove the ocean and ends in Morretes just some meters above sea level. The track leads through luscious tropical vegetation of the Atlantic Rain Forest, numerous breathtaking bridges and tights in a train of the 1960´s.

We get off at the Marumbi station and begin from there our hiking tour at the Itupava Trail, one of the most ancient paths in Paraná, linking the sea with the area where Curitiba is today. Astonishing fauna and flora, rivers with crystalclear water and much history! The hiking lasts about 2h30, always downhill until Porto de Cima, where the transportation will be waiting for you.

Morretes was a very important place by the end of the 19th century and had 3 river ports to export the mate-tea and sugar-cane produced in the region. Typical lunch (not included). We reccomend to try “barreado”: boiled beef cooked in a closed casket for many hours. It will be served with fish and seafood. Visit to Morretes after lunch. Return to Curitiba. Departure at 7:30 am and return about 5 pm.

Difficulty level: medium. The tour includes a hiking downhill of 2h30 in the middle of the Atlantic Rain Forest. Hiking along a trail in the middle of the forest, always downhill. 

VERY IMPORTANT! Delays and cancelations may occurr due to technical reasons. We strongly reccommend not to book this tour if you have a departure flight the same day.
