Sierra Verde Express

From Curitiba to the little town of Morretes there is this old train you can take driving trough the Atlantic forest with a maximum speed of 30 km/h, a ride of approximately 3 hours. As we were on our way to Paranagua and Ilha do Mel which is in the same direction, we decided to take it to get a change of scenery.

The density and diversity of the vegetation is simply incredible and the views from the train is amazing. We’re glad we took it despite the somewhat tired bridge from 1885 we crossed over whilst looking down over the forest.
