Cambará is a modest little town in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul, with lovely inns and pleasant restaurants where you can eat delicious homemade food. I got to know everything I wanted in just a weekend.

On Saturday I went to Itaimbezinho early in the morning, to avoid the fog. Not that a misty view is bad; in fact, it is quite interesting to watch the fog rising from the canyons and invading all around me – but without it the visibility is better. This is a splendid place; it seems that someone cut a huge slice of 800m depth with a knife.

On the second day I went to Fortaleza, which in my opinion is more beautiful,  you can see the ocean and the view is greener.

There is no need for a guided tour in these canyons, it is a simple hiking. However, do not risk doing the trail alone down there, if it starts raining the river comes up quickly and there is no place to hide.
