Ecoparque Sperry – Another Good Option at Serra Gaúcha
One of the tours we chose to do while we were in the Serra Gaúcha was Ecoparque Sperry. The park is located in the “Vale do Quilombo” (Quilombo Valley), 8 km (5 miles) from the center of Gramado and 10 km (6 miles) from the center of Canela.
It is a great option for those who like to walk in the middle of nature as we do. 🙂
The park has a total of 4 waterfalls, they are: “Cascade of Trombão” (with 35 meters of fall and can be seen from the viewpoint), “Cachoeira do Poço” (small fall, but has a beautiful well of green water, ideal for bath), “Cachoeira da Usina” (Below the Cachoeira do Poço, has 45 meters of fall and can be seen both from the top – by the viewpoint – and from below, going to its base) and “Cachoeira Escondida” (you can see its top can from the Tangará trail bridge) .
The trails are self-interpreting and well signposted, you can’t go wrong. Throughout the course, you can see animals such as armadillos, monkeys, and agouti, as well as several trees, many of them with botanical information.
The complete itinerary in the park lasts about 2 hours. That is a very easy walk, as you can see by the clothes we are wearing, lol.
The park is well maintained, with clean toilets, well-scattered bins, and benches for resting.
For those who want to have lunch there, you can go to the Restaurant Bêrga Motta (we did not go). If you eat at the restaurant, you are don’t need to pay the entrance fee for the park. A noteworthy detail: the restaurant only opens on weekends and holidays.
