I bought the tickets only one day in advance, so we had only the choice for an only brasilien tour guide train. But it was ok. Of cause 3-4 hours in an old train for 60km is not a technical issue to ride this train, but in total it was a nice saturday trip with friends. The time in Morretes... More

The history of this railway construction is interesting. During the trip we had three hours to observe the preserved Atlantic forest and the beautiful mountains of Serra do Mar. It was quite hot in January and we loved a walk through the streets of Morretes where we tried a refreshing ginger ice-cream.

Serra Verde Express offers a package to return to Curitiba by bus from Morretes. The bus is really an uncomfortable van with narrow windows where they pack 10+ people. Very unpleasant journey.

Got to the station to catch the train at 8.15am. I had paid extra for tourist class but, to be honest, it wasn't worth it. We were given a lunch box with rubbish snacks and there was a guide who announced which side of the train we should look out of to see the odd waterfall or dam. She was... More

It's one of the two train rides that you can perform in Brazil. The sight is wonderfull, and you can fell the climate changing as you cross the natural Atlantic Forest. It's very confortable, and the train even stops at some points so that you can take a picture.

I just ... Ok so! There is, like everyone else has said, the very very occasional glimpse of a pretty impressive view. At one point you could see for miles and miles of trees and a bit of a hill. And there was a waterfall at one point. That bit was pretty good. Except you could only see these bits... More

It´s one of those things that even locals love doing o hollidays and weekends. Great views, lots of nature, local taste of our culture in Morretes. I´ve taken it several times over the years it it´s very well run by current management. Good trips for couples, families and friends. If you have the time spend a night at Morretes.

Well organized attraction. The scenery in the mountains is unbelievable - the "Bridal Veil" Waterfall is breathtaking! Beautiful day trip - I recommend taking it one-way outbound from Curitiba, having lunch in Morretes to enjoy the "barreado" typical dish of the region, then visit Antonina - the oldest city in the state with a well maintained set of historical buildings...

The train ride was fantastic! You're able to stand up and walk around if needed, and they provide you with a treat box with common Brazilian snacks for the ride. We took the train one way so we could peruse the shops and small town of Morretes. The bus fair home was inexpensive, faster, and air-conditioned. However, the train ride... More

... through the Atlantic Rainforest down to the coast. Not many know, that this train ride is actually through the thick sub tropical Atlantic Rain forest, the second biggest biome in Brazil. The -first visible- difference to the Amazon rainforest is that it is mostly covering the Serra do Mar mountain range that goes down most of the Brazilian Atlantic... More
