About the adventure

A life-changing experience. The Jalapão Crossing is an opportunity developed for people who are not only content to know paradise places but instead need to experience the destinations where they pass. Living Jalapão is a choice for those who want to get out of the conventional and immerse themselves in the Jalapoeira culture. An experience that will take you to explore the region walking, paddling, and meeting people who have the essence of Jalapão at heart.


An inhospitable place where we are disconnected and isolated to realize the importance of simplicity with every step taken, despite the effort that this itinerary requires of us, we are always rewarded for every drop of sweat spilled. The Volta ao Parque is that. More than just a trip, it is an experience that transcends us and reveals the treasures hidden in the paths, rivers, and lowlands scattered around the corners of our great wilderness. We invite you to surrender to our Cerrado.
