VILA VELHA AND BURACO DO PADRE WATERFALL: LUSH NATURE WITH TRAILS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL AGES.
Do you like nature but want comfort? What about visiting beautiful places, accessible by quiet and safe trails?
‒ See the famous Vila Velha State Park with its sandstone formations! Nature has been very generous to this region and you will appreciate the result of 300 million years of history! The hike is quiet and can be made in full or only the part, meaning it is accessible to anyone who likes to walk. The part of the sandstone up to the “wine glass” has only 7 steps and is made in walkways of easy access. If you want to see the other part of the sandstones, which is more humid and close to the vegetation, it takes another 40 minutes and 200 steps.
‒ Also visit Furnas and Lagoa Dourada, also on quiet walks with some steps. The Furnas were, in a very remote past, caves that collapsed and today have the appearance of craters with vegetation. The Lagoa Dourada is a cave in the process of sedimentation and is named after the golden coloring of its waters at certain times of the day.
There are optional actitivies such as tree climbing and ziplining. You can add some action to your tour!

‒ The Buraco do Padre is a beautiful 30-meter high waterfall. Access to it takes place on a 1 kilometer trail that has been totally revitalized and is now accessible even to wheelchair users. The local nature is impressive and the structure is very good: toilets, trash cans, snack bar and security. If you enjoy more challenging hike, there is also the Favo Trail, at an intermediate level that leads to the top of the waterfall.
