How does the train tour to Morretes work?

Let´s go to the main infos about the train tour to Morretes. The train has a departe time from Curitiba to Morretes and a and one departure time back: at 8:30 AM (some days the luxury train departs one hour later - you will see the difference here as well). The train leaves from Rodoferroviária (bus and train station) from Curitiba to Morretes. A central location and easy to arrive by car or by bus.

>> Departure calender 2019 <<

The trip is approximately 4h15 duration, but eventually there are some delays or stops in the middle of the railroad, as the side cars share the railroad with freight trains. This cannot be predicted, and you can't stop doing the tour as long as it happens - avoid having this annoyance and enjoy the ride.

The train goes to Morretessuch a friendly and quiet historic town. You will find many small shops selling local produce, restaurants offering barreado, a juicy beef stew, which is the typical dish of the region. Walking there you will see beautiful mansions and historic buildings. Also highlight to the famous bala de banana and the cachaças of handmade preparation.

The train departs back to Curitiba at 3 PM from Morretes rail station, very central and easy to find. The trip takes again about 4:15 and arrival time is about 7:15 PM. But again, delays can happen.

Many people still ask for the train tour to Paranaguá.Since some years the tour ends in Morretes. The rail station in Paranguá was not used anymore and the cargo train traffic there is intense due to the harbor. But anyway, the most beautiful tour part ends in Morretes.

An important tip: it is tiring to go to Morretes AND return by train, as the landscape is the same and you would be more than 8 hours in the train! We suggest that you choose one way. An excellent tip is to choose a tour that includes one way by train and the other by van or mini-bus. So you will have different landscapes and will see the beautiful Graciosa Road if the weather allows. See all options with prices in this post. We will show you all ticket and tour options to compare, so that you can choose the one you prefer.

IMPORTANT DETAIL: the sunset time depends on the season. In summer time, it happens later. Despite the tour name "Sunset", we can not guarantee you will see one. The estimated arrival time in Curitiba is at 7:15 PM.

 

If you compare,

... the options that include pick up service, regional lunch and return by van are a great deal. It was worth because you will not have to worry about anything else and will not waste time buying bus ticket, for instance. Beyond that, on these options the trip to Antonina is also included, what is great - it is a lovely town worth the visit. It is close to Morretes, but if you have the transportation already included, you will not have to worry about departure times and avoid to hurry up. See how your tour planing is like and choose the best option for you. We are here to help you if necessary!

In all tour options, if the trip along the Graciosa Road is not reccommended, be for the weather conditions or due to an event, the trip will be made along BR-277. It is also a very beautiful road!

In the blue days the prices for tickets and tours that include the ticket from Curitiba to Morretes in the Luxury class are the prices are higher, but there are advantages. The luxury train depars one hour later, what makes the boarding time quieter and there is a stop for pictures at Padlock Sanctuary. It is a nice moment to enjoy the vistas from the mountains. Besides that, as there are only 3 cars, the train conductor makes some stops on the way in front of the most beautiful landscapes.

"May I choose the seats?"

The seats are numbered and sold sequentially. When you book the system will "choose" your seats automatically. Because of that we can not inform in which side of the train you will be.

The lunch in the train packages

The local cuisine in Morretes is one of the city´s attractions. When included, the food is regional: "barreado" (juicy beef stew), rice, cassava flour, fish, prawns and side dishes.
