Day 1 : FORTALEZA - CANOA QUEBRADA (170 km)

We leave from the hotel at 09:00 (time to be confirmed in conjunction with the tides) for our five-day adventure.
01 "guiding" buggy with driver/mechanic + 01 buggy for every two passengers (with their luggage >> pack an easily-carried travel bag -no suitcases-, max. 25 lb).
We get in the buggy, and head towards the shore, which we follow almost all the way to Natal.
At Morro Branco, the high tide forces us to skirt the shore on a rocky crest for over a mile.
We follow beaches many miles long sheltering fishing villages and jangadas seeming to be beached on the shore--swimming breaks when desired.
At the end of the day we reach Canoa Quebrada, the favorite of the Nordeste, and witness the sunset, either from the top of a red rock cliff, or from the dunes and their romantic atmosphere.
Meals not included. Night in a pousada.

Day 2 : CANOA QUEBRADA – ICAPUÍ (75 km)

Today, a change of scenery. Colorful sandstone or limestone cliffs replace the long grey beaches. From red to yellow, through the whole range of colors, we are offered a striking cameo. We skirt a turquoise ocean, always inviting us for a swim, and encounter rare fishermen living in small communities--seeming to have survived the five last centuries unchanged. We are in one of those atmospheres at the "end of the world"...
At the end of the afternoon, we reach Icapuí, small and peacefull village.
Meals not included. Night in a pousada.

Day 3 : ICAPUÍ - PONTA DO MEL (65 km)

This morning, we sleep in. This stage of the trip is short and there is no need for an early start, which leaves us time to enjoy the beaches of Icapuí before leaving.
After a 4 hour trip, we reach Ponta do Mel. "Ponta", in reference to the rocky point dropping into the sea. "Do Mel" (literally "honey") for the sweetness of existence in this village creating a lucky break in our expedition.
This is a real invitation to lazyness and we do not let this opportunity go by for relaxation at the end of the day…
Meals not included. Night in a pousada.

Day 4 : PONTA DO MEL - SÃO MIGUEL DO GOSTOSO (110 km)
We start following the shores before heading west, inland, after crossing the village of Porto do Mangue. We discover that the region counts two mineral resources, the salt and the petroleum, both extracted extensively near Galinhos.
We drive through a succession of surrealist atmospheres: at the heart of a multitude of salt mounds, to the estrada do oleo (literally "the petroleum road") through scenery of aligned oil rigs animated by the permanent motion of the hammer shaped pumps. After circumnavigating a mangrove area, we arrive, in the afternoon, at São Miguel do Gostoso, a charming village.
Meals not included. Night in a pousada.
Day 5 : SÃO MIGUEL DO GOSTOSO – NATAL (150 km)

In the morning, we advance through a succession of sublime and deserted beaches: Touros, Perobas, Zumbi then Maracajaú where we can swim and snorkel to our heart’s content in the middle of myriads of fish in the natural crystal clear pools facing the beach, 4.5 miles from shore (boats are available all day long).
We continue on to Ponta Gorda and its line of coconut trees standing guard, Jacumã and its fishing villages… before reaching the cape São Roque, Latin America’s point closest to Africa.
In the middle of the afternoon, we arrive at Genipabu, 20 miles of fine sand dunes in perpetual motion.
The pilot, a professional, makes us test what the sand buggy is capable of; a real thrill!
In Genipabu we encounter all sorts of traveling merchants selling everything imaginable.  Among the various activities offered: dromedary tours and skibunda rental (wooden planks on top of which we glide over the sand dunes all the way into fresh water lagunas). The town of Natal is not very far away; we reach it at the end of the day.
Meals not included. Night in a pousada.
