Canoe, Waterfall & Swimming
This delightful tour begins with a 45-minute ride on a dirt road to the small village of Remanso, a former Quilombola founded by escaped slaves, where their descendants still live. From there starts an idyllic 1.5 hour canoe trip through the Marimbus-marsh (mini Pantanal), framed by the Serra do Sincora mountains. The wetlands region was formed by the convergence of two rivers (Rio Santo Antônio and Rio Utinga) and, it is particularly fascinating because of the varied flora and fauna. On the way, you can occasionally see birds and Capuchin monkeys. On rare occasions, you may catch a glimpse of capybaras and caimans. You will then take a 20-minute walk to an old country house, where lunch is served. Following the trail to the Roncador river, you will encounter great natural "jacuzzi" with several small waterfalls and slides. Here you can splash around and enjoy the panoramic view of the Chapada. We will then return to Remanso by canoe and drive back to Lençóis.
Option walk back:
In case you’d prefer to walk back to Remanso we will first cross the river Roncador on foot (or by boat if the water-levels are high) and follow a small trail leading us through tiny, hidden communities within the Marimbus. It’s a good adventure if you’d like to learn more about the people living out here and catch a different angle of the Marimbus landscape. The trail itself is easy and it will take us in about 2 hours back to the Quilombola of Remanso.Tour Level 1-2 : Easy Tour.
02 Day. Day-Tour
Devil's Pool, Cave & a Table 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.
