This tour is one of the most breathtaking trips one can do in Brazil. It will take you through three different states in the north-east of Brazil, from Maranhão and Piauí to Ceará. You will have a chance to walk barefoot through an unbelievably beautiful landscape of million dunes and lagoons in the national park of Lençóis Maranhenses, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of fishing villages, try wind-based watersports and experience the charming culture of the North-East of Brazil. You can start in either São Luiz or Fortaleza, and we will adjust the trip depending on the place of arrival.
