A 45-minute flight or a seven-hour bus journey from Salvador takes you to the small and pretty town of Lençóis, ready to venture into stunning scenery in Chapada Diamantina National Park.


The town of Lençóis has its roots in mining, and whilst time and the weather have faded its colonial legacy, it is a lovely place to stay if you decide against camping in Chapada Diamantina.

Chapada Diamantina National Park

Chapada DiamantinaThe national park is an area of flat-topped mountains and forested valleys dotted with beautiful waterfalls and hidden caves, such as Poço Encantado, where the midday sun shines through a natural window, turning the water a magical electric blue.

Whether you explore on day trips from Lençóis or have a full camping trip, you will be left with memories of spectacular vistas, orchids and hummingbirds, iridescent underground lakes and refreshing dips in clear, crisp waters.
