Salvador

When to go

Jan-March

Ideal length

4 nights

Transfer time

1 hour flight from Patagonia

Capital of the state of Bahia, Salvador means saviour, which reflects the religion and mysticism that is a large part of Bahian life.  The city is an assault on the senses: gold-encrusted altars, colonial facades, African influenced food, sounds of street vendors shouting, the chant of a soccer crowd and the distinctive sounds and rhythm of Bahian music.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN SALVADOR

PRAIA DO FORTE

Praia do Forte is located 90km north of Salvador and has some of Brazil’s best beaches.  Your drive follows Coconut road where you will make several stops to swim from virgin beaches.  Praia do Forte is a small fisherman’s village with 12km of white sand beaches, reefs and coconut trees

CITY TOUR

Start the walking tour of the lower city with visits to several churches, the Modelo market and Pelourinho square, appointed by UNESCO as the most important colonial complex of the 17th & 18th centuries

ALL SAINTS BAY

Board a ‘saveiro’, a traditional Bahian schooner for the cruise around the bay.  From the boat you have superb views of the city, Modelo market and Sao Marcelo fortress.  Sail to Frade’s Island where you have the opportunity to swim and relax on the tropical beach
