Urubici is a town in the highlands of Serra Geral in Santa Catarina. The main economic activity in Urubici is agriculture, however the town is mingled in a matrix of continuos araucaria forest. It is a great place to hiking and observe nature. Over 300 bird species were recorded only in the upper Rio Canoas. Any wilderness oriented person can find his/her way into spots full of surprises. A hiker going up Espraiados region has good chances of observing King Vultures soaring along the slopes, or over the ridge in Espraiado. He/she can also spot the rare Mantle Hawk perched in a Araucaria close to the walls of many cliffs around the area.
