“A wonderful place for some beautiful hikes”
Review of Horto Florestal

Horto Florestal

This is a great place to experience the Araukaria forests which once were widespread in the area. I guess most of the trails are pretty easy to walk and not very lengthy - ours was about 2 hours long and very well marked. We saw loads of butterflies (many more kinds than at the nearby butterfly sanctuary!) and various birds and even a giant lizzard (about 60 cm from head to tail). You get some beautiful views of the landscape from some points as well. You can buy a few snacks and some drinks near the entrance (and also some souvenirs if you want to). There is even a restaurant but we didn't try it.

Veri nice place! Very we'll organized!
We were surprised how good was the restaurant inside the park (near the "train" station).
We asked for a veggie plate and got a great hot plate with grilled veggies, rice, feijao and vegetarian farofa (typical Brazilian food).

Great day outdoor!

Cons: skip the trAin tour and go walking. With the train u see almost nothing and it's all in Portuguese.. The trails are nicer!

The walk to the waterfall took us more then one hour even we took the bicycles (I was not used for the mountain bike, it took some time to maneuver it). The nature is pretty, the waterfall is not really big but beautiful. The place has 4 different tracks, which differ by the difficulty and length. The place has parking, souvenir shops, restaurant, picnic area.

A wonderful place to get in touch with nature. Even for those with limited mobility it is a haven full of greenery and fauna. We were very fortunate to come across a family of 7 capybaras who permitted us to spend a full half hour watching them grazing and photographing them - even the little ones. What a special treat!

At the Horto you have the opportunity to see birds and other wild beautiful animals, practice some "extreme" sports, always in touch with nature. It is the best place to go by bike. Really great!
