Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park

Thanks to the quartz formations, the Chapada is one of the places on the planet where the sun reflects with more intensity. A perfect scenario for you to enjoy the innumerable natural attractions, such as rivers, canyons and beautiful waterfalls. After a long walk, it will be time to relax in one of the charming inns.

Moon Vale

Walk through gray rock formations sculpted by the São Miguel River, which form a lunar shaped group. It is even more beautiful with the movement of the crystalline water.  While you admire the landscape, refresh yourself and relax in the many natural pools and rapids while you feel the special energy of the region.

Ecotourism and Adventure

Jardim de Maytréia Overlook

The overlook is one of the points most treasured by mystics, who agree that there is a magnetic force field at the location.  Whoever is not in synchronization can go just the same.  The fields with flowers, paths and buriti groves, with the mountains in the background, make it one of the most photographed places in the region.

Macaquinhos Valley

If all you want to do is be in direct contact with nature, be prepared to be awed.  The river that bathes the valley goes around the rocky relief of the locale, forming beautiful waterfalls and pools of clear, green water along the course of the river. Choose one of them and relax while you enjoy the gorgeous landscape.
