Amidst breathtaking scenery, you will find Flor do Vale - Alambique e Parque Ecologico, where you can learn about the process of distilling cachaça, Brazilian rum. The place lies in a valley near Canela and has a yellow bus that leaves from the central square of the city every day. You can reach the distillery by car as well and there is a parking lot on site.

O lugar ainda tem uma trilha muito legal que dá... more »Every time I can take a leap in this place. You can have a lesson of what is the process of making cachaça, tasting various types and then buying! The place still has a very cool trail that leads in a waterfall. It's worth knowing! Oh! And there's a museum called: Thin bunches. There's cachaça from various places!!!! Very interesting!
Chegamos ao local, a sra que nos recepcionou só se ocupou em mostrar um mapa e mandar seguir uma trilha. Dissemos que queríamos aprender o processo e ela falou que poderíamos, NÃO FOI O QUE OCORREU! N... more »We arrived at the scene, the lady who welcomed us only took care of showing a map and having a trail follow. We said we wanted to learn the process and she said we could, IT WASN't WHAT HAPPENED! There was no one to guide, the place is large and with confusing signs and scattered posters (which do not answer questions). The driver who led us to the end of the process went there to say that we did not finish the tour pq we returned with fear of getting lost in the property. The owner didn't even ask herself to talk to find out what happened. A total disregard.
It's a beautiful place with a massive waterfall that you can actually get to the base. They advertise animals, such as monkeys and other native creatures, but I couldn't find any. You pay $15 per person if you want to go to their trails and to the waterfall. An extra $20 can buy you some archery practice. An extra $30 can buy you some gun practice. You can taste their traditional brazilian drink called "cachaça" (ka-sha-sah), which has 40% alcohol. You can also understand how the drink is made. They provide a booze bus to pick you up/drop off at the hotel if you want to try the drinks (cost varies). The roads there are unpaved with lots of potholes, so prepare your car for a dirt/dust fest. No one speaks English there.
Super solicitous attendants, good cachaças but what won my heart was the fig liqueur. For those who collect there are beautiful shot glasses.
