The Classic Lençóis hike
Join us for half a day on this 5km circuit trail near Lençóis which offers a beautiful inside about the variety and natural richness at the boarder of the Chapada Diamantina National Park. First we reach the Serrano, a local attraction of water holes and natural whirlpools that is surrounded by interesting rock formations known as conglomerates. From here we enter into the Halls of Sand (Salão de Areias Coloridas), an open cave labyrinth with beautiful colored rocks. A bit more upriver you will discover the lovely pools of Poço Halley, an ideal place to take a refreshing bath. This location got named after the Komet Halley. Now we have a steep climb ahead of us before we reach the spring waterfall (Cachoeira da Primaveira). It’s just a bit more uphill until we reach a stunning viewpoint from where you can enjoy the panorama of the valley you just walked through and Lençóis in the distance. Heading back to Lençóis we will encounter the last attraction, the photogenic Cachoeirinha waterfall with its hip deep natural pool.. Tour Level 1-2 : Easy-Moderate Tour.

Devil's Pool, Cave & a Flat-Topped Mountain
By car, we leave Lençóis towards the river Mucugezinho. From the trail-head we will reach the Devil’s Pool ("Poço do Diabo") after a 25-minutes hike. A gorgeous place, with its waterfall and natural pool, surrounded by colorful rock formations, excellent to take a swim and enjoy the scenery. If you feel like a little adventure, you can slide directly from the top of the waterfall into the devil's pool on a zipline or even rappel down. Once back at the car we cross the Serra do Sincora to the other side of the mountain range, the landscape changes noticeably. This area is much dryer and is full of cacti. The next stop is "Gruta da Lapa Doce", the second largest limestone cave in Brazil with impressive limestone formations (Stalactites and stalagmites). The cave extends for more than 42km. We will cross through a sector of 900m and, upon exiting, we will stop at a typical regional restaurant with a delicious buffet. There, we can try chopped cactus (palma) or green bananas with pieces of meat (de Godó banana) as well as other specialties. After lunch, we continue by car to the nearby "Pratinha". Here we take a swim in the crystal clear lake right next to the Gruta Azul, a cave lake with deep blue water. Finally, we drive to Pai Inácio table mountain – an important symbol of the Chapada Diamantina. After a 20 minute steep climb, we enjoy the stunning postcard views from the top of the plateau and wait for the spectacular sunset. A beautiful excursion comes to an end and we head back to Lençóis. Tour Level 1-2 : Easy-Moderate Tour.
Top of Fumaça 380m Waterfall & Capão Valley
One of the most popular tours leads you to the top of the second highest waterfall in Brazil. Leaving Lençóis we travel by car while heading direction Palmeiras. From here we will leave the paved road and continue the next 20km on a gravel road up onto the entrance of the Capão Valley village passing the mighty Morrão, a prominent Table Mountain and the highest point in the northern Chapada. After registering our group at the trail head we continue hiking steep uphill until we reach an altitude of about 1300m. From here we already get rewarded with great views over the valley and the very special vegetation of this area. At a leisurely pace, we hike for another 60 minutes in order to admire the waterfall from above. To see the waterfall, you have to lay flat on a ledge. The "smokey waterfall" got its name because of water falling down, actually never hitting the ground and getting pushed back up again by the winds – which looks from a distance like "Fumaça" or smoke. On the way back, we will stop at the Riachinho waterfall where you can take a refreshing dip in the natural pool. When bad weather occurs, the alternative is the center of the village of Capão.
