Sample Itinerary - Subject to changes

Note: Please note that changes to the itinerary may be necessary because of local conditions, weather and riding experience of the group - always with your best interests in mind.

Day 1:  Porto Seguro to Pousada do Outeiro
Following your arrival in Porto Seguro, you will be transferred to Pousada do Outeiro (approx. 2 hour drive). Settle into your room and later, have a short briefing and learn more about the region.
Meals included Dinner
Overnight at Pousada do Outeiro

Day 2: Ride to Itaporanga
After breakfast, journey by car (approximately a 10 minutes drive) to meet your horses at the polo field. It is considered one of the most beautiful Polo Field and Golf Course in the world. You will be introduced to your horse and have a safety briefing. Before you set off on your ride, you have the chance to get acquainted with your horse: walk, trot and canter around the beautiful polo field, which has stunning views of the ocean and beaches below you.
Once you are happy with your mount, set off on a ride along Jacuma beach in the direction of Barra do Rio Frades. From here, journey along forest paths and along sandy tracks until you reach Itaporanga village.
Stop for lunch at Bigode’s, a restaurant that serves typical Brazilian dishes. Try rice and beans, as well as local chicken and meat dishes.
After lunch, there is the opportunity to visit Elma’s Forest Wood Design workshop. Here, the owner carves a wonderful variety of benches, chairs, stools and tables out of reclaimed wood. Many of her larger pieces line the streets of this small, friendly village. Then, continue your ride to the Pataxó Indian village of Imbiriba. If you wish, there will be the chance to shop for souvenirs made by the tribe. There is a huge variety of items to choose from; bead necklaces, wooden bracelets, rings made from buffalo bone, wooden bowls and carved wooden boxes, so make sure you take some cash with you if you think you will want to purchase handicraft items.
On arrival back at Pousada do Outeiro, you may wish to relax in your hammock, take a swim in the hotel pool or wander down to the beach.
Meals included Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Pousada do Outeiro

Day 3: Pousada do Outeiro to Trancoso
After a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, tapioca and eggs, set off from Caixa D’agua, near the pousada and wind your way through forest trails. Later, negotiate a small river and then it is on to a deserted beach for some wonderful canters along the surf. Lunch will be a picnic along the way.
On arrival in Trancoso, you will be shown to your guesthouse. If there is time, you may wish to explore the shops and bars that line main square (‘Quadrado’), before dinner.
There is a good range of restaurants in Trancoso and so you are free to decide where you wish to eat tonight. Your guide will be happy to advise and assist you in ordering your meal if you wish. Dinner is on your own account tonight. A meal at the most expensive restaurant in the region will cost about £18-25 per person.
Meals included Breakfast & Lunch
Overnight at Guesthouse in Trancoso

Day 4: Trancoso to Caraiva
After breakfast at your guesthouse, retrace your steps along the beach and cross the buffalo farm. The beach is so stunning that you will not mind riding across it twice! Perhaps your guide will pause to pluck a sea urchin from the water or dig out a crab that has been hiding in the sand! Your morning ride takes you to the Ranch where the horses live. There, you will be received with a refreshing coconut and will have a picnic lunch (fruits and sandwiches). Shortly after, meet your new horses and set out again to the beach. This afternoon, you will ride along cliff paths and golden sandy beaches in the direction of Caraiva. After a few more hours in the saddle, arrive at Caraiva, where a water taxi will be waiting to paddle you across the Rio Caraiva to Caraiva village itself.
The horses will overnight at a nearby hacienda. There are no motorized vehicles here, so your guide will take you on foot to your guesthouse. Accommodate into your room and if there is time, explore some of the nearby streets. You will find many colorful houses, which gives a sort of Caribbean feel to this little village.
Meals included Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Fazenda in Caraiva

Day 5: Day ride from Caraiva*
Ride south in the direction of Corumbau Village. Later on, leave the beach and head towards the native reserve close to the village of Barra Velha. Head into the forest and follow a trail that leads you to another Indian small community. Here, you have the chance to learn about the tribe and their day to day lives. After an interesting experience with them, walk to the river bridge where a boat will meet you. Your horses will return to Caraiva with the guides.
Depending on the wishes of the group, you might stop at a swimming spot on the way back to Caraiva or float on the water in a rubber ring. On arrival at Caraiva, you may cross the river with your horses and return by boat.
*: Please note that the route of the ride is dependent on the tides.
Meals included Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Fazenda in Caraiva

Day 6: Caraiva to Pousada do Outeiro
After breakfast, leave Caraiva behind and journey back towards Pousada do Outeiro. Perhaps you will stop in a clearing to drink refreshing coconut water, or maybe your guide will show you the bright yellow cashew flowers which grow in this area.
Arrive back at Pousada do Outeiro in time for lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing. Take advantage of the lovely pool in the hotel grounds, swing in your hammock as the welcome sea breeze glides around you, or stretch your legs with a wander along the beach.
