Trekking 6 days 5 nights

Fantastic adventure through Lençóis Maranhenses, one of the most unique regions in the globe. Surreal landscapes will be observed in the Brazilian "desert", full of crystalline lagoons. We will visit communities lost in time, untouched rivers, giant dunes and multicolored lagoons. We will get to know closely what it is like to live in an area where nature dictates the rules, experiencing the immemorial way of life of the natives. Transformative and unforgettable experience, indicated only for the strong in body and soul: HIGH level of DIFFICULTY.
