This hike is really worth it, this waterfall is soooo impressive. You can jump off the rocks as well. But first check other people if you are not sure. If you are in a good condition and are used to hiking I really recommend this waterfall hike if you are a few days in Lençóis. The path is quite easy... More

The trek to sossego leaves right out of town, so very convenient and the scenery is beautiful on the way there as well as at the waterfall. Its about a 7km trek I believe and not for those who have bad knees or are too out of shape. It can be done without a guide, but you will miss out... More

It's a reasonably demanding hike, alot of scrambling over boulders, but not too difficult: we had a 12-year old with us who managed very well. Of course, it is hot! It took us about 3 hours each way from Lencois with plenty of time to swim at the waterfall and again at other falls on the way back. The canyon... More

Staying in Lencois we knew we wanted to do some walks in the surrounding area. We were so happy to have chosen the track to the Sossego Falls. The walk has wonderful views, beautiful river scenery and some great adventure hopping the rocks in the river bed. Jair, our guide (you do need one for knowing the safe passage) was... More

Sossego was a gorgeous waterfall and swimming hole. Most people recommend taking a guide although I went alone - it took me 2 hrs. The first half of the hike is easy but the second is boulder hopping and climbing up through the river so if you are not a hiker definitely get a guide (and be careful if it... More

Took about 2.5 hours to get there from Lencois. 7km each way, last two a scramble over rocks. But well worth the effort!

It took me 3 hours to get to Cachoeira do Sossego. It's very hard to get there and besides a local guide, you need to have some experience in trekking (at least has to be fit) to get there. But the scenario is indescribable: you walk along the river, in the middle of the canyon! Amazing! But once again, it's... More
