Description and pricing

An impressive canoe or kayak trip through a large swamp area and a refreshing swim in the giant natural pools of the beautiful Roncador river .  The lunch is on an old farm with a diamond history.




Marimbus and Roncador
The Marimbus wetland is located between Lençóis and Andaraí. The tour begins with a 45 minute ride on a dirt road to the little village Remanso, a Quilombo, founded by escaped slaves. From there, we take a canoe and go down the river covered by semi aquatic plants as well as a large number of fish and birds. About 1h30 hour later, we have lunch in a old farm with a diamond history. After one regional meal, we will take a 20 minute walk till Roncador waterfall, with great natural “jacuzzis”, several small waterfalls and fantastic big-natural pools for swimming. After a refreshing swim, we go back by canoe to Lençóis, take a car (18 km in dirt road)  or biking (18 km). Very easy level of walking and recommended for everyone.
