Description

This is the natural continuation of the Classic Path.

Here, you will have a pleasure to make a downwind in 3 diferents states of Brazil on this route: Ceará, Piauí and Maranhão. 

Piauí has the shortest coastline of any of the Brazilian states at 66 km and the capital — Teresina, is the only state capital in the northeast to be located inland. The reason for this is, unlike the rest of the area, Piauí was first colonized inland and slowly expanded towards the ocean, rather than the other way around. In the southeast of the state, the National Park of Serra da Capivara is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park has more than 400 archaeological sites and the largest concentration of rock paintings in the world, in a landscape dominated by canyons and caatinga.

In this path landscape starts to change a lot. You will be getting to a transition area between the dry northeast region to the wet and green Amazon forest. There will be more rivers, dunes, mangroves, forest, and less civilization.

And you will get to know 2 treasures of Brazil: The Delta of Parnaiba, and optionally the Lençois Maranhenses. With untouched nature, these 2 sanctuaries are a must for those seeking wildness and we are happy to take you there with all the safety. (The amazing Lençois Maranhenses is an extra that can be organized previously).
