Here you will smell the Rain Forest. This ancient road cuts the mountains while you count butterflies. You can also go by train.

This is a great drive for those who like sinuous mountain roads with magnificent scenery among green forests If you don't want to drive, take the train down to Morretes and remember to lunch on the local speciality barriado there. Great photo opportunities

Spectacular old road with twists and turns. You can stop on the way and dip in the river or buy some of the local made sweets in one of the several stands along the route. An excellent day out driving from Curitiba down to Morretes.

If you like nature, come by car or by bike in case you have the guts ;) it will be a special experience if you are from a non-tropical country.

What to say about this road? I was grown up travelling every weekend with my parents to the coast and making our stops there for the snack. I remember the fresh air of the mountain and it seemed so big. The road is old, amazing but dangerous to drive. Better go by bike. You will have amazing views from there.

It is a beautiful old cobblestone road that winds it way to the coast. It is absolutely worth it! Even though it rained most of the way, it was still worth it.

From Curitiba you can go to the city of Morretes by the Estrada da Graciosa (Graciosa Road). It is a ancient road that crosses the mountains near the coast inside the astounding rain forest or "Mata Atlântica". The best way is by car, but you can see more adventurous people riding bikes... There are many different stops with wonderful sightsees.... More

Not a highway for sure! :-) Very slow drive - windy, narrow, cobblestone road to the historic town of Morretes. You wouldn't take this road to get anywhere fast, that's for sure. It's beautiful, though, especially on a sunny day (on rainy, cloudy days it tends to be too foggy to enjoy the spectacular views - which is also beautiful... More
