I love nature and the Serra Verde goes through some beautiful mountains. Still, I rate it as a 1 because it is not a good value for the time and cost involved. It is $66 U.S. round trip. You ride the train for 3 hours and get maybe 20-30 minutes of nice scenery. The rest of the time all you... More

After having quite a nice day, with a very relaxing lunch in Morretes, we went to catch the 3pm train service back to Curitiba. We had been expecting a relaxing ride through the forest, with impressive views. However, unless you sit on the right side of the train, you actually don't get to see a lot. Everything of any interest... More

Great little 3 hour train trip, taking you right into and above the rain forest. Tourist class and above provide snacks and a on board guide. Our lady was super helpful and did her talk both in Portuguese and English. Comfy seats, slow pace, really relaxing.

As it is summer holiday for me as a teacher I went with my husband on his business trip to Brazil and to be honest besides the historical centre there is not much to do in Curitiba besides eating out in nice restaurants if you are as spoiled with traveling as I am. So I was very happy to read... More

We took this train ride through the rain forest because my mother can't hike long distances. What a treat! If you speak English make sure you upgrade to executive class because they speak both Portuguese and English in that car. The tour guide had a breadth of knowledge that was amazing. We would recommend it highly.

This is an experience that includes older trains, lush forests, stunning views, a slow pace, a cute snack, and a quaint town at the end. Our guide was wonderful, everything was said in English and portugeuse. My tip for you is dress in layers. The beginning of our trip was very cold and wet. When we reached morretes it was... More

Starting at the Curitiba rail station, you travel about 4 hours down the mountain to the coast on a 1 meter gauge line thru the jungle.Beautiful and impressive scenery. Amazing construction of a railroad. At times you are looking over the top of the jungle canopy riding along a cut into the side of the mountain.

Have to say this was nice, but was WAAY over-rated. They said it was the "most spectacular train in S. America." Hmmm, only because it is the ONLY train ride in S. America!! I liked it, but definitely would not do it again. The other thing that REALLY bothered me was I paid extra to have an English speaking guide,... More

We did this tour as part of a bike tour from Curitiba. We were very lucky with the weather as it was very clear and sunny all the way through the journey! So many spectacular views. We also enjoyed water and a light snack whilst on board and the host was very lovely too. It's a pretty long 3.5 hours... More

I have done that trip a long time ago and I was excited to show my husband the incredible trip. First the train goes very slow during the urban area, then, a little faster. We left around 9 am and arrived by 2:30. We ate somethings in the train but I recommend you bring some snacks . Lunch is late... More
