Average time to visit

Temperatures in Bahia vary little from month to month and it's warm all year round, with average highs hovering around 30°C. April to July is the wettest season (though it can rain at any time) and June to September bring slightly cooler evenings.

Salvador goes mad during Carnaval (February or March depending on the year) - more than 2 million party-goers hit the streets for a colourful riot of dancing and drinking - expect prices to hike and availability to fall dramatically.

This is the perfect trip for adventurous travellers, wishing to combine rich culture with natural landscapes and outdoor pursuits. Visit two of Brazil’s most effervescent cities, Rio with its instantly recognisable landmarks and Salvador with its colourful architecture and beating drum soundtrack. Lace up your boots and hike through Chapada Diamantina's impressive rocky scenery before winding down on a palm fringed beach.

  1. Fly to Rio de Janeiro

  2. Days 1-4: Rio de Janeiro

    Your epic voyage begins in iconic Rio de Janeiro, whose impressive landscape provides scope for a multitude of adventures. Enjoy tours through the jungle, biking, kayaking and climbing up to famous landmarks such as Sugar Loaf Mountain to gain an alternative view of this famous city.

    Accommodation: Arena Ipanema (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-6: Salvador

    Fly to Salvador de Bahia, its colourful colonial centre is the perfect base for your stay as you are introduced to the region’s fascinating Afro-Brazilian culture. Salvador is also the birthplace of capoeira, a traditional Brazilian form of martial art which combines elements of dance and acrobatics in an impressive display of athleticism and strength. Watch the experts as you take in a traditional show or if you’re feeling adventurous why not even have a go yourself!

    Accommodation: Villa Bahia (2 nights)

  4. Days 6-9: Lencois & Chapada Diamantina

    Chapada Diamantina is your next stop, a vast National Park famed for its impressive table-top mountains, cascading waterfalls, underground caves and crystal-clear lagoons. The small charming town of Lencois, which sits on the banks of a fast-flowing river, will be your home for the next few days. In the evenings it really comes alive with street performers and alfresco restaurants and bars, making it the ideal spot to unwind after a day of exploring the great outdoors. You’ll need your hiking boots to reach the top of the mountains for the most incredible viewpoints, clamber over rocks and ravines, and cool off in sparkling waters at the base of waterfalls.

    Accommodation: Hotel Canto das Aguas (3 nights)

  5. Days 9-13: Trancoso

    By this point you will have earned a rest, so spend your final few days in the bohemian fishing village of Trancoso, which sits on a clifftop overlooking swaying coconut palms and a glorious stretch of golden sand. Relax beside the hotel pool, wander down to the beach and watch the world go by at one of the chic bars and restaurants that occupy the pastel coloured quadrado at the centre of the village.

    Accommodation: Pousada Capim Santo (4 nights)
