Canela— 6 nights
One of the best bases for ecotourism in the Serra Gaúcha area, the old town of Canela charms visitors with quaint architecture and a laid-back atmosphere.Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Flor do Vale - Alambique e Parque Ecologico and Jolimont Winery. You'll explore and learn at Parque Aldeia do Imigrante and Castelinho Caracol. Change things up with these side-trips from Canela: Chagdud Gonpa Brazil Buddhist Temple (in Tres Coroas), Caxias Do Sul (Sao Pellegrino Church, Museu Ambiencia Casa de Pedra, & more) and Sao Francisco de Paula (Lago Sao Bernardo & Miragem Livraria). There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Caracol Falls, stop by Maos do Mundo, make a trip to Praca das Etnias, and appreciate the history behind Praca Major Nicoletti.
