Chapada Diamantina Tours
The Chapada Diamantina lies in the center of Diamantina, a city in the state of Minas Gerais near Lencois. The mining town of Lencois was the gateway to the Chapada Diamantina diamond mining region, and is a National Historical Heritage site. On a Chapada Diamantina Brazil Tour, check out the traditional streetlamps, restaurants, and shops that were built during the mining era, which you can see on a walking tour. Three hundred years ago, an expedition discovered diamonds, and a mining town was built from wood and adobe. The streets are visually distinct, having been paved with large grey stones called capistranas. Enjoy this relatively out of the way mining town, it’s lively atmosphere, few tourists, and diamond museum as you take a tour of Brazil.
Historic Centre of Diamantina
There are other tours and excursions available in the Chapada Diamantina region. A must-do is to go hiking through the highlands, which feature plateaus and valleys and many walking trails. We offer a full-day tour of Mucugezinho & Morro Pai Inacio. First, visit Mucugezinho, a beautiful ecological sanctuary with some waterfalls and natural swimming pools surrounded by exuberant flora. Continue to Poco do Diabo (the Devil’s Well), a big black lagoon. Next, explore the Cave Lapa Doce, the Cave Pratinha, an amazing flooded cave, and Lake Paratinha, with crystal clear waters, with an opportunity for bathing, relaxing and a picnic lunch. As the day winds down, hike up the Morro Pai Inacio, a beautiful tabletop mountain, where there are a variety of wild orchids and other exotic plants. From the top, experience the magnificent setting sun over the panoramic view of mountains and canyons. We also offer a tour of Poco Encantado (The Enchanted Well) and the Cave Azul (The Blue Cave), both of which are caves with gorgeous crystal-clear waters.
