One of the most remarkable places to visit in Southern Brazil! It is a must see place if you like contact with nature and wildlife!

One of the most beautiful sights on earth Together with his far neighbour Fortaleza Cannyon, it lays on the highs of Rio Grande do Sul Access to park is easy, near to small cities like Sao Francisco de Paula. The park structure is good, you can have a good walk to reach several view of the cannyon, However it lacks... More

Those seeking radical adventures will not be satisfied with the trilha do Vertice which is very easy to do but great views if you are trekking with small children and elderly people - make sure you visit on a clear day as it can easily get overcast and misty. On your way to the canyon and back stop at the... More

This canyon is very beautiful and accessible. We took a taxi from Cambara Do Sul, which cost $R70. It costs $R13 to get into the park, half for Brazilian residents. Its about 2-3 hours worth of non-strenuous self guided walking. Locals say its best to visit in the morning because it fogs up in the afternoon. Definitely worth a trip!

It's a very pretty place. Great views. Too bad only a small part of the park can be reached. And the place around Itaimbezinho tends to be "too civilized" with "fences" around the canyon... But it's still very much a great place to visit.

Cambara do Sul is a small town, about 3 hours from Porto Alegre. You can get there from Porto Alegre or Caxias, the nearest airport. best thing is to rent a car. visit Itaimbezinho and Fortaleza Cannions, they are amazing. The ideal time is to go during winter, when the fog is out, and from the high mountain you can... More

Just one big white wall instead of canyon view... sound of waterfalls and few seconds view between big fog clouds to the bottom.. but it was nice and quiet walk, lot of great trees, fresh air.. As...

What an amazing landscape! These huge natural walls are a true miracle of the nature. The araucaria forest and the plenty of surrounding green makes it even more beautiful, specially in a sunny day when it is quite possible to see the sea, on the very far horizon. Certainly a must in the southern Brazil, for both nature lovers and... More

The view of the canyon is beautiful. The road access to the Park is not so good, if you have a jeep it will be better.
