About Chapada Diamantina National Park


One of the most complete adventure destinations in the country, the second largest national park in Brazil is located in the heart of the State of Bahia, 450 km from Salvador. The scenery, formed by mountain ranges of sedimentary origin, was sculpted by winds and water over 1.7 billion years, resulting in fascinating and unique natural attractions in the region.


Leo Lacerda


Listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Chapada Diamantina National Park is a conglomerate of natural beauty, history, art, and life. In the 17th and 18th centuries, this region was the scene of the mining rush, and it was not by chance that it was named Diamantina, due to the number of diamonds found here, including the largest diamond in the world with 3,167 carats.


Saulo Diniz


Rich in biodiversity and part of the Cerrado, Caatinga, and Atlantic Forest biomes, Chapada Diamantina National Park is a stronghold for rare animal species, such as the giant anteater, giant armadillo, porcupine, wild cats, capybaras, and countless types of birds and snakes.



Day by Day


Day 1 - Poço do Diabo / Gruta da Fumacinha / Morro do Pai Inácio

On the first day of our expedition, we will explore the northern part of Chapada Diamantina National Park on an easily accessible hike to a delicious bath in Poço do Diabo, a twenty-meter-high waterfall. The canyon-shaped river gives even more beauty to the landscape, along with the dark red color of the water. Then, we will head towards the Gruta da Fumaça in the city of Iraquara, one of the most complete in the region, to see the diversity of stalactite, stalagmite, and speleothem formations, in spectacular halls. To end the day, a light climb to Morro do Pai Inácio, one of the postcards of Chapada Diamantina, to watch the sunset and get a real dimension of the immensity that is this park. We will continue by car to spend the night in the city of Guiné, the entry point for the Vale do Pati trail.





Day 2 to 4 - Vale do Pati 

One of the most popular trek in Chapada Diamantina National Park, Vale do Pati is an attraction in itself. This valley brings together a bit of everything that exists in the park, with beautiful waterfalls, caves, plains, and mountains that will enchant you and also challenge your physical limits. The steep ascents and descents are rewarded by the incredible views.


Day 1 - Cachoeirão Lookout

Duration: 8hrs | Distance: 16km


We will begin the Vale do Pati trek, with a steep climb of Aleixo for about 1 hour contemplating a beautiful view of the mountains. After a walk between plains, streams, and mountains on the plains of Gerais do Rio Preto we will reach the Cachoeirão, with a spectacular view of almost 260 meters with another beautiful view of the valley above. In times of rain, its walls impress with the formation of more than 20 waterfalls, making this place even more magical. We will continue our trek contemplating the sunset until we reach the homestay Igrejinha, where we will enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by this Pati host family and have a deserved rest.

Day 2 - Morro do Castelo and Funis Waterfall

Duration: 7hrs | Distance: 6km


After a well-deserved night of rest, we will have breakfast and prepare for the challenge of the day: climb Morro do Castelo. Along a steep 2-hour trail, we will cross a beautiful forest until we reach a majestic cave. We will cross the cave from the inside with a flashlight until we reach the top of the castle overlooking the entire Pati Valley. After some time contemplating all the beauty and grandeur of the place, we descend back to the valley.




We will continue our walk down until we reach the Cachoeira dos Funis, over 30 meters high, and a natural pool perfect for cooling off and recharging. In addition to the main well, we will rest at Cachoeira do Lajedo, perfect for relaxing after a long walk. At the end of the day, we will contemplate the sunset heading to our homestay at Mr. Wilson's house, where we will sleep and enjoy a delicious homemade dinner on our last night at Vale do Pati. Mr. Wilson was one of the first two to receive tourists in 1997, becoming a reference in Vale do Pati for hospitality and delicious dinners. Today commanded by the sons Nara and Wilton.

    Unforgettable experience

    June 21, 2023

    All our experience during these 6 days was incredible, and we owe a lot to our guide. At the same time that he was extremely attentive and careful, he gave us space to overcome our own challenges on the trails, which made everything very rewarding. We could see his connection with other guides and locals from Pati, a demonstration of respect and mutual trust. Definitely a trip that added a lot to our spirits, unforgettable.

    Wonderful place

    June 20, 2023

    Incredible experience. Our guide gave us a 360-degree view of Pati, taking us to beautiful viewpoints. The freshly prepared menu was very tasty. Everything happened as planned, with plenty of safety measures. We would definitely return to Pati and look for him again!

    So sad that it's over

    June 18, 2023

    Our trip to the Pati Valley was one of the most spectacular treks of my life. I can barely describe it because it was so magical — with challenging days that made me feel good about myself, amazing sights, with wonderful company, including the privilege of having a teacher join us and give us meditation guidance and yoga in the most perfect spots and in ways that gave the trip an extra layer of meaning. Most of all, our wonderful guide, made the whole thing special for us, providing a perfectly orchestrated tour, beautifully timed and structured to get the most out of the beauty of the valley. The lunches he made for us were very carefully considered, given our gluten intolerance, and they were absolutely delicious. We felt privileged to be in the company of our guide and would not only recommend them highly but we really didn’t want to leave. Thank you, for this special time.

    Incredible experience

    June 17, 2023

    Vale Do Pati is a beautiful place. We enjoyed our time there and certainly recommend visiting this incredible place to others. Our guide is a kind, resourceful, and caring tour guide. He also has a good sense of humour that makes the journey much more fun. Additionally, he is a mean air guitar player! His exclusive performance of Money for Nothing for us was one of the trip’s highlights.

    Therapeutic hike

    June 9, 2023

    The vale do pati trek was absolutely sensational ! The scenery and hiking was therapeutic whilst being disconnected from the outside world was refreshing and grounding. Our guide was extra thoughtful in accomodating for everyone including dietary preferences which was an incredible detail whilst in the depths of wilderness. He provided good vibes throughout and always had an unbeatable story to tell ! Unfortunately members from our group were unable to continue on the last day, however our guide kindly handed us over to his colleague who guided us to finish the trek. his colleague had studied geology so he was able to educate us on cave formations whilst we did the cave crossing and provided many insights throughout the rest of the trek. He was also a pleasure to hike with ! It was the experience of a lifetime and I would highly recommend both guides to anyone visiting Chapada, I look forward to returning and trekking with them again !

    Very empathetic and patient guide

    June 5, 2023

    The trip was very well organized. The guide was sensational. He understood and accommodated my pace and difficulties throughout the trails and stayed by my side during the most challenging sections for me, providing me with reassurance. He made the trip possible for me, that’s the truth. And the snacks were wonderful, the attention to everyone’s dietary restrictions in the group was fantastic.

    The days hiking Vale do Pati with my guide were incredible. He was my guide, cook, photographer, botanist, and storyteller. He made sure to adapt the trip according to my physical abilities, showed me his favorite parts of the Valley, and overall made this trip very special.
