The Atins offers several trekking / hiking itineraries, for all levels of difficulty and endurance. From the simplest and lightest to people less accustomed to long walks, to longer routes of up to 60 km. All our trekking / hiking are accompanied by an experienced guide. Localization difficulties, caused by the constant changes of the dunes plus the difficulties of survival in the environment and the possible unforeseen ones in a desert region that offers few resources, discourage solitary walks without the aid of a guide.
We offer 2 itineraries for trekking / hiking within the region of Atins and Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. We can also create personalized itineraries according to the expectations and physical conditions of each person or group.
