Active Brazil: Remote Bahia and Fernando de Noronha

15 days from £3,260pp

Brazil

  • Fernando de Noronha

Overview & Highlights

The unspoilt archipelago Fernando de Noronha, off the northeast coast or Brazil offers walks, snorkelling and diving. On the mainland the tableland country of Chapada Diamantina is criss-crossed with delightful hikes.

  • Walking tour of historic Salvador
  • Explore the Chapada Diamantina National Park
  • Trek to the Sossego waterfall
  • Hike in the Vale do Capão

Many people who visit Brazil stay on the coast but if you'd like to participate in active adventures, the interior beckons. Here you combine trekking in the heart of Brazil’s tableland scenery with snorkelling off the coast of the remote island of Fernando de Noronha.

The interior of the north-eastern state of Bahía is scenically alluring and historically interesting. This is plantation country: cotton and sugar were cultivated here in Portuguese colonial times and thousands of African slaves worked on them, resulting in today’s eclectic culture in this exotic region of Brazil. Beyond the plantations are forested hills punctuated by Lost World-like tablelands, remote and sparsely populated, separated by rushing rivers and tumbling waterfalls, and criss-crossed with delightful hikes.

Move on to Fernando de Noronha, the natural tropical beauty of which is protected by the Brazilian government. Some the world’s best diving sites are to be found here, and the snorkelling off the rugged bays is equally spell-binding.
