The overall rating shoud be 5 points. The point that is missing, is not because of the attraction, but because of the heavy fog that prevented us from seeing some of the best views in some sections of the track (We took the Curitiba - Morretes part only). However, even what we've been able to see was amazing, unique and... More

I travelled on the serra verde express in June 2014, whilst visiting Curitiba during World Cup. I like train trips to begin with, so jumping on a historic "litorina" style train car was always going to be something I would like. In addition I was looking for something a bit different and slow paced after about 2 weeks of relentless... More

Hello, Thank you for your input about the train ride. The train really goes at this speed, around 25-30 km/h, that is because you are passing inside the biggest Atlantic Forest Reserve in the world. The attractions start since when you are leaving the train station in Curitiba, when you pass through neighbor cities of Curitiba, where all of them... More

An amazing train journey through the sierras on a line constructed 125 years ago. Iron bridges, waterfalls, precipices, ravines, the lot. The carriages are from the 1960s with modernariat charm. Executive class carriage gets a commentary in English and complimentary meal. Well worth it for people of all ages.

We booked a package with the Serra Verde Express company, and what a service! The train ride was really nice, such an adventure. Slow train ride, but very cheerful atmosphere. Sometimes the toilet's window has actually got the best view! We then had lunch organised in the Serra Verde Express Restaurant - lovely lunch. Private transfer onto Ilha do Mal... More

The forest is nice, but it's so overgrown that you barely get any views. We bought the economy tickets: no commentary, but we got upgraded on the way back. Mostly I didn't think it was an interesting day, unless you're already bored.

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
