In a small village, stop in at a local pub and pull up a chair. Order a Skol or Bohemia, popular beers from the area, and toast to the villagers with a “saude”.

This morning, take care of the horses before enjoying a hearty breakfast, and select a suitable route for a horseback journey depending on the season. Gently canter through a small village and travel across a landscape of canyons before stopping for lunch on the banks of a river. Continue riding through the fazendas and absorb the vastness of the open countryside. Then meet your driver to load up the horses and travel to the wonderful Pousada Serra Bella, your accommodation for the night.

Laguna, Canyons & Dolphins

Days 7

Leave the Pousada Serra Bela this morning and drive to the magnificent lookout point called “Morro da Igreja”. Soak up the sight of cavernous canyons that drop almost 1800m below. Continue onto Corvo Branco to explore the best that nature has to offer. Take a detour from the direct route to visit Laguna, where wild dolphins assist local fishermen in getting a catch. This unique phenomenon is still a mystery to experts and an experience not found anywhere else in the world.
