One thing that makes the Horto Florestal special is the Araucaria forest. This type of conifer biome used to cover vast areas of southeastern and southern Brazil, but it is rare now. This is the single biggest Araucaria forest in the whole state of São Paulo. It is a beautiful place to walk, complete with lots of activities for the... More

I was not expecting such a good structure to receive the visitors. They have a number of attractions, food and activities for those looking for a relaxing outdoor experience. Nice and affordable option for the family or couples.

Really pleasant experience. Beautiful place, clean, well-kept, protected. Many trails for people of all fitness / experience levels, including children. Places to eat, clean restrooms, etc. Amazing place close to nature, perfect for pictures.

Beautiful place to walk, do the ropes course and jump in the waterfall. Kids loved running on the beautiful paths. Wonderful birds to see and hear. Small place to get a coffee or Coke.

A great day out with tree climbing, walks, bike hire lake, wildlife. My 3 year old could do the first easy trail. A tiny visitors centre although interesting

A beautiful, relaxing place, that can be immensely educational. Take the train tour and learn all about the fauna and flora, nature conservation and local habits. Very worth it.

I recommend this park for those who like to go hiking! There are 4 different types of trails and access by car is easy. There is a playground and for those who are with children will be able to let them run wild there. Ther is a restaurant and places for picnics outdoors and also has a small waterfall!

This is really and immense State Park for the preservation of the flora and fauna of the region. Much of it you will probably not see considering its size. But the region at the entrance is very charming, with many options for walks. You can also take a small tourist train that shows some of the flora with (often very... More

I have visited this park several times and it´s always nice going back. You have bike rental options (great bikes in excelent conditions), nice activities over trees and trails for great views. There is also a good restaurant and a snack bar.
