Brazil Chapada Dimantina National park
Discover with us one of the best place for hiking in Brazil
Chapada Diamantina is a destination that has many assets. First of all, a magnificent and preserved nature: large virgin spaces, rivers of clear water, a multitude of waterfalls, natural swimming pools, magnificent panoramas, caves, prehistoric rock paintings. There is also a wide variety of possible activities, adapted to all levels, such as day hikes, trekking for several days with night in a bivouac or at home, vehicle excursions around the national park (perfect for a 3-4 day roadtrip) or mountain sports (climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, horse…).
What to do in Chapada Diamantina
But it is also necessary to come and discover Chapada for its lively and picturesque villages. Capão, Palmeiras, Andarai, Ibicoara each have a particular atmosphere. Some are remarkable for their colonial style and are even classified. This is particularly the case for Lençois, Mucugê and Igatu. It is also a region where culture is very rich: many festivals, traditional festivals and artistic events are organized. The history of the region is also interesting: there are remains of late 19th century diamond mining. Not to mention the gastronomy, but also the hospitality and kindness of the inhabitants of La Chapada, typical of the interior of the Nordeste.
Salvador – Lençois
In the morning pick up hotel/airport and transfer to Salvador Bus station.
Departure in a regular Bus to Lençois (7hs approx). Arrival in the afternoon. Welcome by local staff and transfer to your pousada.
Depart at about 3pm for a 6km walking tour, starting from the Lençois city. Then, we walk to the high area of the city and start our way towards Serrano and Primavera.
It is an interesting place on the river where the floor is conglomerate rock which has been polished over millions of years. There are many natural pools to go swimming and get a hydromassage.
After we go through this labyrinth of sandstone we will head for the Little Waterfall that the people call Cachoeirinha. Here you can go in the water under the waterfall and get energized to go up the mountain to Primavera Waterfall. This waterfall is much stronger and the massage is great.
