Tickets to visit the Cambará do Sul Canyons will be a reality! Rates could reach R$ 80, but the promise is that the structure will be of the best

The visitation to Aparados da Serra and Serra Geral National Parks, in Cambará do Sul, will be charged. This is because at the beginning of this year the green areas where the Rio do Boi trail and the canyons of Itaimbezinho and Fortaleza are located were privatized through a bidding process for the company Urbia Cânions Verdes, which has already warned that a fee of R$35.00 per day will be charged of visitation and R$55.00 for two. From the third month onwards, the value must be increased to R$50.00 and R$80.00 respectively.

The beginning of the use of tickets to access the parks was scheduled for September 1st, but the manager went back a few days earlier and spoke in a statement on August 27th. A new date has not been set, but it has been guaranteed that the population will be notified at least one week in advance. So far, admission is free.

The company Urbia Cânions Verdes, as soon as it won the bid to manage the parks, presented the project it intends to carry out in the coming years, transforming the complex in Cambará do Sul into the best structured and preserved in Brazil. Improvements in access, renovations to expand the viewpoints, insertion of a camping area and motorhome are part of the future intentions. The entrance fee is justified based on the collection of values to get the project off the ground.
