Bahia Luxury Tours, Brazil

Rejuvenate by the famed Bahia Coast

LUXURY TRAVEL BAHIA

Travel to the Bahia coast, a region known for lush tropical vegetation and untouched beaches, during this private tour in Brazil. Begin in Salvador de Bahia, the largest city in Brazil’s Bahia state, where you will learn about the region’s colonial past as you visit Pelourinho (the old city), Mercado Model, and the Farol da Barra. From there, continue to Trancoso, an exclusive beachside enclave with a bohemian feel perfectly suited to luxury travel. After visiting the town’s charming central plaza, the Quadrado and admiring the appropriately colorful architecture, choose from a variety of active excursions. Highlights include biking in the lush Valley of Buffaloes, taking a surf lesson with a pro on the lively Itapemirim Beach, and kayaking on Rio do Barra, one of the most isolated beaches in the area. Of course, you may choose to simply enjoy a relaxing beach day as well. Your Bahia luxury tour continues with a private boat transfer to your final destination: Corumbau, a remote region populated by local indigenous communities.
