FLORIANOPOLIS | BRAZIL

Why Visit Florianopolis in Brazil?

"This sunny region of Brazil is known for its particularly raucous carnival, fantastic beaches and curious German towns."

Florianópolis, nicknamed Floripa by locals, is the prosperous capital of Santa Catarina state in Southern Brazil. The vibrant Ilha de Santa Catarina offers sand dunes, pine forests and many different beaches, bays and lagoons. Further south along the coast there is the pretty bay of Praia do Rosa where Southern Right Whales can be seen from July until November. Inland and into the province of Parana there is the Serra Verde Express, one of Brazil’s last great train rides from Curitaba to Morretes through mountains and Atlantic Forest. Due to a large amount of German settlers there is a distinctly European feel to the area and the town of Blumenau hosts the third largest Oktoberfest in the world.
