For nature lovers and avid hikers, our Chapada Diamantina Travel Package is the perfect add-on to your Brazilian holiday! Cascading waterfalls, picturesque plateaus, caves with underground lagoons and statuesque mountains are a few of the reasons to fall in love with Chapada Diamantina. A maze of trails, from beginner to advanced, takes hikers through valleys and streams, and shows the best of Brazil’s natural beauty. Some of the trails were once used by treasure hunters in their search for diamonds.
Chapada Diamantina is located in Northeast Brazil in the state of Bahia. It’s Brazil’s most glorious national park and its size is enormous (15,000 square miles & larger than some European countries). Your home base to check out this incredible destination is Lençóis. This old mining town with cobblestone streets and old mountain charm offers the best tourist infrastructure and in its heyday was the center of the world’s most productive diamond mines. The local airport (LEC) receives two flights per week from Salvador (Bahia’s capital) on Thursdays & Sundays. You can also get there via bus or private transportation from Salvador in about 6 hours.
You can visit any time of the year. November until March is the wet season where temperatures are higher, and the waterfalls and rivers are at their most impressive. The drier part of year is from April until October which make good months to visit for hiking. In general, the weather is stable all year, but it does get cold in higher altitudes.
Our Chapada Diamantina Travel Package is customized to include the best points of interest near Lençóis. TGW partners with the best local suppliers to make sure you are taken care of. We recommend going for 3 to 4 nights and the package can be 100% personalized for instance if you want to travel there via plane or bus or change the excursions for more advanced or moderate fitness levels.
