Vila Velha State Park is located in Ponta Grossa, 100 km from Curitiba. Already on the way to Ponta Grossa you will see different landscapes: forests closer to Curitiba, smaller villages on the way, industries, fields, farms and interesting rock formations. 

Vila Velha means "old village" and hosts a great number of natural sculptures that were formed by the rain and wind over millions and millions of years. Each one reminds different things, such a glass, a bottle, an Indian, and much more. You will also see the "Furnas", impressing stone holes and also the "Lagoa Dourada" - Golden Lagoon. The tours inside the park are guided and they take about 3 hours in total.

On the way back to Curitiba stop for lunch in Campo Largo, where you will eat at a traditional "Churrascaria", where grilled meat is served as much as you wish, besides a complete salad and side dishes buffet. Beverages and desserts are not included in the tour price.

Campo Largo is a lovely small town and the greatest porcellain producer in Brazil . Here we will stop at different shops where you can buy unexpensive dishes, cups, vases and much more.

Itinerary

This tour includes Vila Velha State Park and a visit to Campo Largo, Brazil´s main porcelain producer. The landscapes until there are very beautiful, with rock formations, fields and farms (cattle raising and grains). The park has three main attractions:

  • Arenitos: the stone formations have curious forms, like a cup, camel, ship, Indian, bottle, among others
  • Furnas: big craters with vegetation and water inside
