Florianopolis and its surroundings

The Great Florianopolis region includes the rafting area of Santo Amaro, the hot springs of Caldas da Imperatriz and the Encostas da Serra region, where home stays with organic farmers give a perfect opportunity to get to know rural Brazil.

From Florianopolis you can easily access by road all the major attractions in Santa Catarina, such as the Serra Geral mountains, the Emerald Coast, and Praia do Rosa, one of the best places in South America for whale watching. Direct flights to all the major cities in Brazil as well as Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay, make it also a good starting point for any trip to Brazil.
