Visit the beautiful landscapes of Campos Gerais on a trip to the Vila Velha State Park, located in Ponta Grossa.
Distant only 90 km from Curitibawith a very different scenery from what you will find in Curitiba. The main attractions are the impressive formations of sandstone, Lagoa Dourada and Furnas, with its very high walls and ancient breathtaking underground lakes.
300 million years! This is how long it took for the sandstones of Vila Velha to be formed, with the collaboration of the Ice Age and its glaciers, and the action of wind erosion.
The Vila Velha State Park usually opens from Friday to Sunday. Other days on request.
The main attractions are the sculptures of sandstone and theLagoa Dourada (Golden Lagoon).
The hikes in the park are carried out under the supervision of a local guide. A full tour takes approximately three hours and gives the visitor the opportunity to get to know the rock formations by walking. On one side of the landscape, the tourists are astounded at a wide open lawn. On the other, the Araucaria forest with closed and humid vegetation, constitutes an interesting contrast.
We also recommend leaving Curitiba at 07:30 AM, since there are established times for visits to the park. Also your afternoon will be free to enjoy as you prefer in Curitiba. However, it is possible to leave later, since thetour is private.
