Lençois lies a six-hour bus ride from Salvador, in a gorgeous, wooded mountain region – the Chapada Diamantina – an oasis of green in the dusty Sertão. You’ll find solitude, small towns steeped in the history and superstition of the “Garimperious” (prospectors), and great hiking to peaks, waterfalls and rivers. If you want to see something different, and have time for only one excursion into the North Eastern interior, this is the one. To move around you do on foot or by jeep. Some sights are remote from the main entry of Chapada Diamantina, Lençois, and therefore you may stay over the night in the mountains.

Some attractions: Trek to Sossego Waterfall – tracing the Ribeirão River to one of the most impressive waterfalls in the region with great swimming opportunities along the way, including the exhilarating Riberão de Meio, a natural waterslide. Poço Encantado – is an underground lake, which is clear blue and stunningly beautiful, considered by locals the 8th wonder of the world. Igatú – a ghost town, miners abandoned this once prosperous town when the diamond veins dried up. Trek to Vale do Capão – perhaps the most beautiful valley in the whole Chapada Diamantina National Park. Trek to Smoke Waterfall – is the tallest free-fall waterfall in Brazil, with a sheer drop of 422 meters. The path to the falls offers tremendous views of the mountains and valleys and, depending on the time of the year, many spices of bromeliads, orchids and other flowering plants are to be seen along the way.
