Wildlife Area Nature / Park
On the road between Gramado and Canela, spare half an hour to visit Pinheiro Grosso park, home to an astounding Araucaria tree that is 700 years old. Walk the trail to see more native pine trees, characteristic for this part of the country and unlike the vegetation most casual tourists expect to see in Brazil’s rainforests. Ecotourism is very popular in this region and there are many opportunities for hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and river rafting. You can spend a rainy day taking a relaxing walk on this park’s well-kept scenic trail. Umbrellas are handed out at the entrance.

  • The Park is small, we can visit him in 1 hour and the attraction itself is the age-old pine. A nice walk through the trees and a little of the history of this pine tree. Worth it for those who already held all the other activities of the city and is a quick walk.

  • This pine tree possess their 800 years and in the midst of nature, stands out from everything that's around, providing a nice contemplative visit ... too good!

  • We were in 11 days and 12 us Cinnamon may. When we went to the Park (by Waze) arrived in front of the gatehouse and the same was closed for renovations (with a sign at the gate). A shame! Should leave it open and do the reform by parties as a tourist who travels more than 1000 km waiting to see about 700 years pine (inside!).
