This horseback ride in Brazil in the Big Fish Restinga Lagoon National Park is a unique opportunity to discover on a great Lusitano horse, a set of very rich ecosystems. In an inhospitable region like this, everything is accessible on horseback, allowing you to get out of the Patos lagoon, also called the "inland sea" (280 km long and up to 60 km wide). In a few hours of riding, you reach the "outer sea", the Atlantic Ocean, crossing wetlands, native forests, dunes, lagoons and beaches: an incredible and beautiful diversity. The natives say that "it is the only place where the sun rises and sets in the sea".
