Trekking Crossing + Kayaking
A special itinerary, for mixing two beautiful activities carried out in Lençóis Maranhenses. The walk, but known as the crossing, is a 14km descent by kayak on the Alegre River, a descent that reserves many different landscapes from the dune pattern we are used to seeing. This itinerary is an enchanting experience, it's four days of walking with a last day of canoeing.
The itinerary also visits two new spots in Lençóis Maranhenses, the community of Mocambo and the community of Rancharia, two great villages on the edges of the dune field that guard beautiful regions of lagoons.
