Salvador da Bahia and the Chapada Diamantina: Explore the Chapada Diamantina

Visit Us

Explore the Chapada Diamantina

Difficulty rating:

Easy
 

While many visitors stick to Brazil’s coastline, we suggest you let the natural beauty of the Chapada Diamantina lure you inland. From your base in the pretty town of Lençois, we’ll take you out walking in some of the most striking scenery the country has to offer, where table mountains erupt from the flat sertão, waterfalls plummet into black lagoons and the area’s many intriguing caves and grottoes shelter dazzlingly vivid turquoise pools.

Along the way you’ll be able to swim just metres from the spray of a waterfall, and there are even opportunities to zipline into a blue lagoon or toboggan down a natural waterslide.
