Gorgeous, quiet, relativily easy to get to. No crowds and clean water for a refreshing dive. Highly recommend this if you seek a less crowded place to visit.

I'm a person that doesn't like to pay money for something I don't need. So I was hesitant if I wanted to hire a guide for this. It's not on maps.me and people warned that the trail isn't obvious. So I ended up hiring a...More

If you don't walk slowly like most of the people in havaianas I highly recommend to leave to this place later the day because you might be as lucky as me and have the whole waterfall for yourself. Most people returned from it while I...More

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

Sossego waterfall is one of the most beautiful places there. However, if you are not experienced in trail, be prepared to face some dangerous paths. I am afraid of highs but I was able to complete the course. On some parts, I had to seat...More

Such an Incredible Walk, 3 hours worth of adventure. It can be done without the guide, we got lucky with others walking that wa. As 2.5 hours we lost the signs, it simply crossed the river, the tip is keep following the river up stream,...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!
