Cycling in the Bahia’s coconut palm coast is absolutely fantastic. The natural beauty can be noticed by the pristine rivers, springs, beaches and waterfalls and when getting into the forest, by the native flora and fauna.
The particular Bahia cuisine (North of Brazil), the architecture and the local handicrafts will complete an outstanding experience. And all of this can be done on a bike!
The coconut palms are the symbol of shade and fresh water, and they stretch all over 115 miles, from “Mangue Seco” to Praia do Forte, in the north extreme of Bahia’s coastline.
Most of the ride is done in the beach during the low tide, and the rest is done on gravel roads and in the last day we’ll follow the “Green line” the first ecologic road that links Salvador de Bahia with Praia do Forte.
This is a different tour: A pure independent cycle tour, where everybody will carry its own luggage in panniers.
