One needs to be in good condition, but if you are this day's hike is absolutely worth going. Walking through the woods, along an interesting mountain river, with many places to swim and have a picknick. Arriving at the falls you are well rewarded with...More

The waterfall is gorgeous. I went one day after a raining day and the volume of water made the view astonishing. The trail is long (14km total) and full of rocks, ups and downs. Guide is extremely recommended. Some adventure without a guide but I've...More

We decided to go sossego even though everyone said that the trail was very hard. The weather was very sunny and consequently dry, so it was easier. Yes, the way is full os rocks that you have to climb and jump from one to another,...More

Great 6 hour walk, partly through the bedding of the river. You need an experienced guide to take you there. We had a native Dutch speaking guide, living in Lencois, Jochen Geerts. You can find him on Facebook. Absolutely recommended!

We went to Sossego waterfall on our second day in lençois. I must confess that our guide sold the place really high, saying that it was the most beautiful waterfall in the world, which probably collaborated to my disappointment. After 1.5 hours of canoeing and...More

You have to be very carefull at the trail because of a lot of slippery stones and holes but it is totally worth! Very romantical, very natural and an amazing view on the waterfall! You can swim, climb and go under the waterfall. The trail...More

We went with a tour group that brought us to several different places but this was one of my favorite. Be sure to be able to hike a moderate trail with rocks and slippery stones. The reward is worth it with a perfect waterfall and...More
