Full description
Explore the geological wonderland of Vila Velha (“Old City" in Portuguese) on a scenic day trip from Curitiba, and learn the myths and history behind the fascinating state heritage park. You will depart Curitiba at 07:30 for the 55-mile journey to Vila Velha State Park. There, your guide will lead you around the formidable sandstone formations, and explain how they were created over millions of years by the combined effects of wind, rain, volcanic eruptions, and glaciation. A similar weather process gave rise to the mica-filled Golden Lagoon (Lagoa Dourada), where you may catch the golden effect caused by the sun’s rays. The stunning water mirrors of the furnas (craters) formed by the collapse of the sandstone is another feature of Vila Velha that will dazzle you, before your return transfer to Curitiba.
