Follow northern Brazil’s famed ‘Route of Emotions’ from the colonial streets of São Luís, through the surreal dunes of Lencois Maranhenses, to the idyllic beaches of Fernando de Noronha.
Perhaps neglected in favour of the better-publicised attractions of the Brazilian south, the cultural richness and otherworldly landscapes of Brazil’s remote northern coastal regions make for an exceptional trip. Your holiday begins with the colonial centre of Sao Luis, before heading out into the soft, undulating dunes of Atins and Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. Continuing on through the picturesque rivulets and lagoons of the Parnaíba Delta, you will eventually reach Preá, where you can pause to enjoy three nights in Casana, Brazil’s most luxurious beach hideaway. After a flying visit to the beaches of Guajiru, a lazy fishing village with miles of stunning and unspoiled coastline, you will fly to the Fernando de Noronha archipelago to conclude your trip. Regularly voted the most idyllic beaches in the world, the beaches tucked away in the sheltered bays and coves of Fernando de Noronha are perfect for whiling away a few days of perfect relaxation.
