Pinheiro Grosso park, Canela

(300+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Canela trip itinerary builder to add Pinheiro Grosso park and other attractions to your Canela vacation plans.
