This is a great place to experience the Araukaria forests which once were widespread in the area. I guess most of the trails are pretty easy to walk and not very lengthy - ours was about 2 hours long and very well marked. We saw loads of butterflies (many more kinds than at the nearby butterfly sanctuary!) and various birds... More

Veri nice place! Very we'll organized! We were surprised how good was the restaurant inside the park (near the "train" station).

A wonderful place to get in touch with nature. Even for those with limited mobility it is a haven full of greenery and fauna. We were very fortunate to come across a family of 7 capybaras who permitted us to spend a full half hour watching them grazing and photographing them - even the little ones. What a special treat!

At the Horto you have the opportunity to see birds and other wild beautiful animals, practice some "extreme" sports, always in touch with nature. It is the best place to go by bike. Really great!

A good place for rest and go for a walk through the trails. If you need a fresh air, hear the water flowing and even drink it (really pure and cold), go to this green place. Take the children and enjoy all day long there.

The Horto has some trails to walk that differs in beautiful and difficulty. But, it's well organized, clean and a nice place to expend a day with the nature.
