  • Calvagar for 10 km until you reach a unique visual ... unspeakable emotion! Local service affordable and fair. Be prepared to face what the nature offer ... mill, cold, heat, Sun ... all will make the experience even more special!

  • If the weather is opened, this will be one of the best views you've ever seen in my life. The valley below the cliffs is wide, colossal, and follows by km on the horizon-so much more than other canyons of the Sierra. But, be prepared for a lot of land. There are two main entrances: turning left in the Centre of Bom Jardim da Serra (SC), are 6 km of asphalt and more or less 40 of floor. Going through the center of São José dos Ausentes, is also 40 km of ground. The roads are not bad inside than you might expect from a dirt road, but the trip is boring (if it rains on the day, or the day before, do not recommend that small cars if the stomach). For any one of the paths, signs will warn you when you get access to Canyon-it is necessary to open a gate in the middle of the road. Are some more km until the last trafegável point, where you can park. This last point, there is a short trail and wide open to the edge of the Canyon. The predominant vegetation is grassland, so the walk is easy. Arriving at the Canyon, you have total freedom to walk as much as you want by the edges, you can spend a whole day there if you want and taking photos of as many angles as you want. The walk is easy, the terrain is quite flat. Just be careful, because freedom means lack of protection-an oversight could result in a crash, so be very careful if you take children. In more, enjoy the view of the more than 1300 meters of altitude-it is possible to view the SC coast depending on how is the time

  • I've been on last Tuesday. Wonderful place. Don't pay to enter!! Watch the edges is very dangerous. A woman fell on the day that was.
