Discover northeast Brazil’s dunes and lagoons
Explore the otherworldly landscapes of the Lençois Maranhenses, where a vast sheet of sand dunes harbours freshwater lakes.
Imagine a Saharan wilderness of undulating dunes, but where shimmering blue lakes fill the valleys between each crest of sand. The inviting oases of the Lençois Maranhenses in far north-eastern Brazil are no desert mirages: thanks to a unique phenomenon, the summer rains collect amidst the sand dunes to create a mesmerising scene, best appreciated between May and September.
On a half-day tour of the national park, you’ll traverse a wonderland of dunes and lagoons in a 4x4 jeep, with the opportunity to swim in the beautifully clear aquamarine pools that dot the ever-changing desert landscape.
