Guided tour to Parque das Dunas, Trilha da Peroba


The Natal Dunes Park is an important conservation unit located near the city center of Natal-RN, and is the second largest urban park in the country. It has a visitor center, where a small herbarium, a library, and playgrounds open to visitors (Bosque dos Namorados). Recognized by UNESCO as an integral part of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest Biosphere Reserve, Parque das Dunas has approximately 300 species of plants, including Cattleya granulosa and Cryptanthus zonatus. The Peroba Trail, where you can observe some of these species and their interactions in a dune environment, will be covered. The end of this trail offers a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean and some interesting birds may also be seen along the way.

Estação Ecológica do Seridó, Serra Negra do Norte – RN


Serra Negra do Norte is 330 km southwest of Natal and in the caatinga, a dry woodland habitat endemic to Brazil. Near 95% of Rio Grande do Norte is covered by this vegetation. As the month of October is the beginning of the dry season, we expect to have a nice trip to this reserve. Besides its intriguing and adapted flora (dominated mostly by Leguminosae, Cactaceae, and Bromeliaceae), several inselbergs may be seen forming this very unique landscape. It will be also a great opportunity to travel and see the small towns of the countryside, and with luck some animals, as well.

Itinerary Day one (Saturday, 13 Oct): Leaving the PraiaMar at 07:00 am to Caicó, stop there for lunch and check into the local hotel. Afternoon: our first visit to the reserve and then come back to Caicó (our base) to sleep.

Day two (Sunday, 14 Oct): After breakfast, leave the hotel, and spend the morning exploring the caatinga of the reserve. Lunch will be in Caicó and after lunch we will travel back to Natal, expected time to arrive at the PraiaMar: around 7:00 pm.

Coordinated by: Prof. Dr Jomar Jardim
Price: R$340 including travel from and to PraiaMar Hotel, overnight stay in Caicó and breakfast. Lunch and dinner not included. 30 persons reserve now!
Recommendations: The use of closed shoes is mandatory for trails, hats, sunscreen, insect repellent..
