What to expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Itaimbezinho Canyon, Rodovia RS 429, KM 18 Aparados da Serra National Park, Cambara do Sul, State of Rio Grande do Sul 95480-000 Brazil

Witness the beautiful millennial basaltic stroke, approximately 700 meters deep and six kilometers long. Two easy trails through the edges allow to see the walls covered by Araucaria: the Vertice (3km, 45 minutes, round trip) and the Elbow (6km, two hours, round trip).

Duration: 7 hours

Stop At: Cânion Itaimbezinho Trilha do Cotovelo, Rodovia RS 429, KM 18 - Cambará do Sul, RS, 95480-000, Brazil

The Cotovelo (Elbow) trail is 6.3 km long (round trip) on a completely flat path, with a walk that takes an average of 2:30h (round trip).

People of all ages can take the Elbow trail, which starts at the park's headquarters. Most of the path is made by an old park road, the rest of the path is made by the edge of the canyon.

Arriving at the first viewpoint, it is possible to see the classic image of the Itaimbezinho walls. Then the trail continues to follow the canyon where you can see views from other angles, with emphasis on the Elbow, which gives the name to the trail.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Parque Nacional de Aparados da Serra, Rodovia RS 429, s/n, Cambara do Sul, State of Rio Grande do Sul Brazil

The Vertice Trail also starts at the park's headquarters, on a shorter route, 1.4 km long. It takes an average of 45 minutes of walking (round trip) and the level is easy and can be done by people of all ages.

Along its route there are lookouts where it is possible to see the Cascata das Andorinhas, a fall of approximately 200 meters high. The fall is formed by Arroio Perdizes which later becomes the Boi River and cuts through the rest of the canyon.

In the second viewpoint it is possible to see the Véu da Noiva Waterfall, with a fall with 289 meters high. Its waters are formed by Arroio Preá, which helps in the formation of the Rio do Boi, a river that flows at the bottom of the canyon.

At the third viewpoint, you can see the two waterfalls and the beginning of the Itaimbezinho Canyon, which is in the shape of a vertex and gives rise to the name of the trail. At the end of the trails, it's time to replenish your energy with a tasty picnic.

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

Everything was good. I also received lunch for free. Personally if I had the possibility I would have gone there on my own, but I don't have a car so I decided to book the tour. Great staff

I purchased an English guided tour and the guide didn't speak English. On entry to the park was forced to pay R$50 even though this was advertised as already included in my ticket, and there is no mobile signal there so can't log on and show it off your mobile. The company only leases the tour f...

O Canyon é espetacular. Quem gosta de passeios pela natureza deve conhecer o Itaimbezinho que fica num parque nacional. Se você estiver de carro sai bem mais barato que por agências. O piquenique fornecido no passeio não justifica o preço altíssimo cobrado. Se você gosta de trilhas mais exigentes...

Paisagens lindas dos Cânions e cachoeiras! A caminhada é longa (bem informada na descrição do passeio), mas as visões compensam muito! Natureza bela e ainda pouco explorada. O passeio foi muito agradável. Antes e depois de chegar ao parque houve parada em uma padaria para lanches e banheiros. O...

O passeio não é realizado pela Viator e sim pela Broker Turismo. A Viator vende um produto que não é dela. Comprei pelo site e no dia do passeio descobri que a Viator não agendou meu passeio com a Broker. Resumo da ópera: pedi o passeio que estava programado com meu filho para o último dia de no...
