Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park (Parque Natural dos Caldeirões) Tours and Activities

star-5
1,647 Reviews

With its gurgling streams, cascading waterfalls and bursts of colorful Hydrangeas, the Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park (Parque Natural dos Caldeirões) shows off the natural beauty of the Nordeste region to its best. It’s also idyllic spot for adventurous hikers, with rock-cut paths winding through the mountains, rainforest trails to explore and endless photo opportunities along the way.

The park’s main draw is its beautiful series of waterfalls, framed by the looming cliffs and lush rainforest, and offering the ideal terrain for canyoning and rappelling activities. The waterfront is also dotted with historic water mills, many of which have been restored and repurposed. Look out for the fascinating Ethnographic Museum housed in one of the mills and the old miller’s house that now serves as a handicrafts shop.
