I asked our hotel for a moderate trek that both myself and my wife could go on and he recommended this. 7km each way it looked like a good way of getting my wife into trekking. Alas that did not turn out to be the case as it is quite a tough trek for a beginner (the last 2 km... More

This was the first time for me to stand underneath a waterfall. The feeling was amazing and I am ever grateful to Sossego to have let me experience it! The walk there is very hard (lots of climbing over rocks and the path is sometimes not very clearly marked) and we did it without a guide but in hindsight I... More

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
