Brazil travel: Urubici
Urubici has about 6,200 inhabitants and is located 160 kilometres from Florianopolis in the canyon landscape Serra Catarinense. The highest mountains of Santa Catarina inspire hikers and nature lovers in particular. The charming town in the valley of the Canoa river is surrounded by hills, hiking trails and waterfalls and part of the “Joaquim National Park”. The National Park covers an area of 493 square kilometres. Particularly interesting are the “Laranjas Canyon” and “Pedra Furada”, which can be espy from the mountain “Morro da Igreja”. Reaching 1,827 metres it is the highest peak in southern Brazil. The many surrounding mountains are inviting for short walks or impressive hikes. A highlight of your Brazil holiday is not only the trek itself, but also the stunning views from the 1,800 meter- high canyons. We recommend visiting the waterfall Avencal, which falls from a height of 100 metres. Even some old caves were found in the region. German, African, Italian, Portuguese and Latvian immigrants once become sedentary here and contributed significantly to today's culture, art and architecture of Urubici. The climatic conditions in and around Urubici are moderate. The temperatures during the day reach a maximum of 19 to 27 degrees Celsius. In winter (June-August) it can snow. For outdoor activities, the best time to go is during the warm and dry weather, which you can expect in autumn (March to May) and Spring (September to November).
