USD 135.50
See a different side of the desert during this nighttime buggy ride from Santa Maria that whisks you across the desert, valleys, and dunes. In a caravan of eight buggies or fewer, your guide will lead the journey across the salt flats of Santa Maria, Kite Beach, a nature reserve, Palha Verde and Calheta Funda. Safety gear and round-trip transport from your hotel is included.
    What to Expect
    Start your journey with the pickup from your hotel, meet your guides and one of the volunteers of Project Biodiversity at our base, where you will also need to show proof of a driver license before starting your night adventure. Relax as you go a bit on the main road, getting used to the vehicle, and then continue off-road following your professional guide through the dark night across the desert, the green Palha Verde oasis, cross the canyons of Serra Negra, the natural reserve, to arrive to Praia Chano, behind Serra Negra, one of the very important nesting beaches for the Caretta Caretta turtles. Once arrived on the beach, whilst sitting and exploring the starry sky, your professional guide will explain you everything you need to know about the life of the turtles and how to behave in order not to disturb them while enjoying this unique show of nature.

    The tour is organized in complete respect of nature, according to Project Biodiversity guidelines.
