In the morning you will journey from Curitiba to Morretes via the famous single track railway, as you enjoy the magnificent landscapes of the Serra do Mar mountain range.

The single-track line through the Serra do Mar is one of the highlights of Paraná. Opened in 1880, it was one of the biggest engineering challenges of the era. The track starts in Curitiba 934 meters above the ocean, and ends in Morretes just a couple of meters above sea level. The distance to Morretes is approximately 70 km. It is considered one of the most impressive train rides of the world through the dense, lush tropical vegetation of the Atlantic Rain Forest with breathtaking views of numerous bridges and landscapes.

By late morning you will arrive in Morretes where your local guide will meet you and take you on a brief walking tour of the historic town center. For lunch, try the local dish barreado - beef stew, fish and prawns while enjoying a view of the Nhundiaquara River from the restaurant. In the afternoon transfer to close-by Antonina for a 2-hour rafting tour on the Cachoeira River.

This rafting tour takes place in an incredible place in the middle of the Atlantic Rain Forest
. It will be a rafting in the middle of a very special area, as the Atlantic Rain Forest concentrates over 25% of all species in Brazil - a truly nature experience. 

Afterwards, return to Curitiba by car or van along the Estrada da Graciosa.

Difficulty levels: it is a rafting of class II/III. NNo prior rafting experience is required, but participants must follow all guide instructions.

No special requirements. Just be comfortable with the idea of spending two hours on a raft as you float down the river through the rain forest.

This tour could be cancelled when the river's water level is particularly low. In this case, we will suggest an alternate tour.

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.
