Hercilio Luz Bridge in Florianopolis Brazil

City Tour in Florianopolis

Day 1

The first point on the tour is the cathedral square, Praça XV de Novembro, which is considered to be the most important historic site in Florianópolis. The terraced buildings around Praça XV are examples of a variety of different periods and styles; there are one - and two-story colonial houses in both the neoclassic and neobaroque modes. The cathedral of Nossa Senhora do Desterro, built between 1753 and 1773, occupies pride-of-place at the highest point of the square, which it dominates. The former Government Palace (dating from the second half of the 18th Century) also stands on the square and is a highlight of any tour of the historic city center. To the west of the square are the ancient alfândega (Customs House) with is neoclassic architecure, and the mercado publico (Public Market), heart of of the historic center where artists, intellectuals and assorted bohemians congregate.

The next stop is at the Ponte Hercílio Luz suspension bridge, the capital's most popular landmark and a favorite on postcards. Looking out from the square at the bridgehead there is a magnificent sweeping view of the bay, taking in all three of the bridges that cross from the mainland to the island, namely Hercílio Luz, Colombo Machado Salles and Pedro Ivo Campos.

Ten miles (16 km) north of the city center is Santo Antônio de Lisboa, one of the oldest villages on the Island of Santa Catarina. The star attractions here are the church of Nossa Senhora das Necessidades, considered one of the most charming on the island and the two-hundred-year-old Casa Açoriana; now a museum and art gallery.

Trekking at Lagoinha do Leste

Day 2

This beach can be reached by 2 different trails: by the trail that leaves from Matadeiro beach, or by the trail that starts near the Pântano do Sul beach.

By either one, we will have the chance to enjoy the biodiversity of the Atlantic forest, until we reach the beach Thet Formany is the prettiest one in the island.

The trail that leaves from Matadeiro beach deligths already at its start, since Matadeiro itself is a beautiful small beach. From there, we will walk along the rocks, always looking at a beautiful sea view. This trail mostly flat, with just a few ups and downs.

The trail that near Pântano do Sul beach takes approximately one hour and a half. Although it is shorter than Matadeiro, it demands more effort, since it has sleep up and down hills. This trail is the one the fishermen and the surfers use to go to the beach. When walking on it, we will walk though areas of the Atlantic forest of the Lagoinha do Leste Park.

Once we arrive at the beach, the beauty will come from everywhere: from the dunes, from the creeping vegetation, from the peace of the pretty lake at its left side, from the beach itself, famous for being the wildest one in the island.

Water Rafting South America Adventure

Rafting in Santo Amaro da Imperatriz

Day 3

The Serra do Tabuleiro State Park which is the largest conservation unit in Catarinense territory, is in the municipality of Santo Amaro, 40 km from Florianópolis. The mountain chain in the region reaches altitudes of up to 1,245m and it is here that a number of rivers originate - among them, the River Cubatão. With its green clean waters - except in the rainy season, when they become muddy - the river Cubatão is perfect for beginners to rafting. There is also a radical route with class IV rapids. Both routes take 2 hours to complete and go past the Rio Cubatão waterfall, which is 4 m high and very safe.

For those who are experienced rafters and have an adventurous spirit, an expedition along the Alto Cubatão by duck is a 4 hour route full of nature and excitement. From Vargem Grande until the Caldas da Imperatriz bridge, there are a number of rapids (mainly class III), canyons, water-falls and lovely untouched Atlantic Forest scenery. At the end of the route there is a thermal- mineral spring - among the best in the world, in which to relax.

Trekking and canoeing at Municipal Park Lagoa do Peri

Day 5

The Parque Municipal da Lagoa do Peri is endowed with an adequate infrastructure for environment education, as well as with three trails suitable for ecotourism, surrounded by lush flora and colored by a wide diversity of bird species. The Lagoa do Peri is also perfect for canoeing and boating. The lagoon was declared a natural heritage in 1976, with the purpose of preserving the natural resources.

With an excellent structure for those seeking tranquility and optimal conditions for bathing, the lagoon is divided into three areas: leisure, biological reserve and cultural landscape. The leisure area is well suited with 80 barbecues, restaurants, parking for 200 cars and life saver posts.
