Lençóis Maranhenses National Park Tours
A bizarre blend of geographical features has forged the unique Lençóis Maranhenses (aptly translating as ‘bedsheets of Maranhão’), a desert-like area of white dunes stretching over 1550 sq km between São Luís and the Piauí border in Northeastern Brazil. What makes the area striking are thousands of clear blue pools of rainwater that fill the dune valleys (seen best from June to August).
Take a refreshing swim in these cold water pools, explore the mangrove swamps, visit the remote villages of Atins and Santo Amaro, or go paddleboarding on the picturesque Preguiças River. Lençóis Maranhenses National Park tours are truly spectacular – a photogenic landscape found nowhere else on the planet.
