A breathtaking view of the canyons, after a 3km walk. Really nice on a sunny day. The park is going through a crises but it's very well conserved. The normal fee is 8 reais per person (Brazilian, 17 for foreigners) plus the parking lot (15 reais). It's very nice!

This is an attraction unknown for many Brazilians. Tough roads, but breathtaking views from this Brazilian Canion, in Aparados da Serra National Park

Beautiful canyon with small travel informations center. Some trails to enjoy the nature with easy access. There are lookouts to contemplate the landscapes. Go with some fresh water and snacks; wear clothes to cold wind.

We spent three beautiful days in this peaceful, picturesque place. The view is really impressive. It is also an opportunity to meet many interesting animals, especially in the evenings.

This is one of three canions in Cambará do Sul city. Entry is R$6,00 and it's totally worth. There are three different tracking. One takes 7 hours.

We came from the Hotel Parador on a rough road, with a guide and Land Rover, 30 minutes. The walking tour along the rim of the Cânion offers stunning views, deep valley, waterfalls, wonderful Araucarias. The exhibition in the Park Reception Hall is worth visiting as well. A very satisfying tour.

We enjoyed the walk looking at the canyons and the vegetation. I think they offer food here but we took our own picnic lunch and enjoyed the afternoon. It is a long drive though so try to plan your day and get out early to see other sights.
