• Blumenau


The Santa Catarina city that concentrates one of the largest textile industrial poles in the country also enjoys parties and ecotourism. Home of the famous Oktoberfest, Blumenau is located in the northeast of the State of Santa Catarina, and makes a point of keeping all traditions and heritages left behind by its colonisers from Europe. The hospitable spirit that hovers in the air of the German city call the attention of any visitor, whether national or international. The German influence in the architecture, which maintains countless mud hut homes, blends in, without losing any of its luster, with the modern buildings which have gained space over time. The typical cuisine is also very present and guarantees delicious moments of pleasure for those who enjoy the new. Just by walking the streets, you can see the importance given to the preservation of the environment. There are mountains and hills covered in green, giving the city a special touch. This ecotourist side awakens the interest of those who enjoy horseback riding, always present in the outings on rural properties around the city. That is Blumenau, a permanent invitation for pleasure.

Horseback riding is one of the most sought after of these options.
