Description

In this 2 days trekking program we’ll discover the tallest mountain of the Serra do Mar massif: Pico Parana. Starting from Curitiba, in this trip we’ll see beautiful landscapes and enjoy rewarding views from the summit.

The ascent of Pico Paraná is a bit demanding physically. You need some basic experience in trekking. There are some exposed parts in the final stage, but you need technical climbing equipment. You need to be healthy and trained, and willing to enjoy and have fun!

I propose to you the following itinerary:

Day 1: From Curitiba to Itapiroca peak

We meet at 7 am in Curitiba to check the equipment and do a quick briefing. Then, at 8 am we start the one hour drive that will take us to the starting point of the trek. In total, this day we’ll walk for 5 hours, starting through the forest and then going into open fields, until we reach the summit plateau of Itapiroca, from where we’ll have wonderful views of Pico Paraná. We spend the night camping there.

Day 2: From Itapiroca to Pico Parana summit, and then back to Curitiba

Early start with breakfast at 7 am. Afterwards we start the approach to Pico Parana. In between, we leave most of the heavy camping equipment to carry less weight. It will take us 3 hours up to the summit of Pico Parana, where we’ll have lunch and enjoy the breathtaking views. The trek down to the parking lot is of 4-5 hours, and then we have an hour drive back to Curitiba.

Note: This is a tentative itinerary, that might change due to weather conditions, group performance, or other situations.

Contact me if this trip sounds interesting, to discover one of the most beautiful mountains in Brazil!
