Depart from Dublin to Salvador.

You will be met on arrival and privately transferred to your city centre accommodation where you’ll spend two nights. Explore the bustling city streets and enjoy relaxing in your colonial style hotel.

Allow us to arrange a privately guided day tour to Pelourinho.

The city is the largest and most well-preserved complex of colonial architecture in the Americas. Stroll through the narrow, bustling streets lined with pastel-coloured buildings while taking in the sights and sounds of the city. You’ll also visit the church of Sao Francisco as well as Pelourinho square.

Check-in to a charming boutique hotel where you will spend the next three nights. Explore the historic centre of Lencois or sunbathe in one of the hotel’s beautiful landscaped gardens.

Chapada Diamantina, Brazil
Allow us to organise unique and personalised excursions for you.

Spend a day visiting the most important sights of the National Park, including mysterious Lapa Doce Cave and the crystal clear Pratinha lake. Enjoy spectacular views from Pai Inácio mountain and walk alongside the Mucugezinho River. To make this tour even more exclusive, we can set up a picnic at the belvedere of Morro do Camelo, the camel hill. Enjoy the sunset and stunning views of the surrounding valleys.

Pai Inácio Mountain, Brazil
Enjoy a tour of the Marimbus Wetlands.

Explore the mini Pantanal that exists in the Lencois ecological park, an area of diverse natural beauty. Walk along this unique terrain and when it becomes too difficult on foot, explore by canoe. Look out for rare species such as caiman and capybara while navigating this unique environment.

Visit the Serrano swimming holes and sand caves.

Close to the Lencois river, the Serrano pools have formed, worn smooth from years of erosion. Enjoy a natural hydromassage in the rushing water before visiting colourful sand caves. Continue through the network of caves to encounter several cascading waterfalls. Enjoy a cooling dip in the rock pools ad let the sound of flowing water melt your cares away.
