An exceptional equestrian trail ride in Brazil. White sand, crystal clear ponds, river islands, fresh and salt water beaches, are the two breathtaking destinations of this trail ride: Lençóis Maranhenses and Delta de Parnaíba, promote direct contact with the lush nature !
Lençois Maranhenses, is one of the most beautiful, unique and breathtaking places in the world. Located in northern Brazil, the territory stretches about 75 km wide, 25 km deep. It became a national park in 1981, and tourism only started about 10 years ago. We can say that it is a “hidden gem” of Brazil. The reason why the landscape of the Lençóis is so attractive, is due to the unique and beautiful landscape of hundreds, if not thousands of rolling sand dunes. The region takes its name from this white, undulating landscape, as lençóis means “sheets” in Portuguese. These dunes, after the rainy season, fill with rainwater "filtered" by the dunes. They become crystalline, with stunning colors varying from blue to green.
The Parnaíba River Delta is the only open maritime delta in the Americas. With him, there are only two others in the world: that of the Nile in Egypt, and that of the Mekong in Vietnam. It is an ecological sanctuary of immense natural beauty. Its ramifications form an archipelago with more than 75 islands, dunes, freshwater lagoons and a lush tropical forest.
The Seven Towns National Park, surrounded by 40 ha of environmental protection zone of the Serra da Ibiapaba, is made up of arid savanna forest (babassu forests) and seasonal forest. It protects an important geological formation of formations. The park also has a prehistoric cave with paintings and inscriptions over 100 million years old. Wind, rain, heat and flora, have sculpted seven groups of rock formations called "towns", natural monuments , giving rise to symbolic forms of animals and human figures. The national park has already been mentioned by the writer Erich Von Däniken, author of the cult "CHariots of the Gods" and has aroused great interest among scientists, historians , geologists, archaeologists and even ufologists.
