This tour is for those who like walking.
In theory we have unbounded capacity for this.
- Antonio Terceiro
This tour will involve quite some walking. It will be winter (though those who live in high latitudes will not be impressed ;-)), but being during the day and doing all the walking, it should not be too cold; nevertheless, make sure you have at least a light jacket with you. Bring water, and wear comfortable shoes.
We will hit the following places:
Bosque Alemão ("German woods") is a small forest inside a residential area in Curitiba. It has a nice, small observation deck from where you can see Curitiba downtown and the forest below; we will hike down the wooden stairs, passing through a stone path that has stops telling the story of Hansel and Gretel and the witch. In its middle there is "the witch house", a place where they hold storytelling activities for children; if we are lucky we can stumble at the which there. at the bottom of the hike there is a portal with a garden, nice for pictures. From there we take another bus to Tanguá park;
Tanguá Park (some pictures at the Portuguese wikipedia page) is a large park which was previously a quarry, also on a hill; the park entrance has a nice observation deck from where you can see the part downhill; we will hike down to the picnic spots, and have lunch there. We will try to arrange a guided visit to the quarry tunnel, which goes all the way across the stonewall.
