Officially a Marine National Park, the archipelago is home to some of the most stunning beaches and inspiring landscapes in the world. Settle into your hotel just outside of Noronha's unofficial capital city, Vila dos Rememdios. Enjoy dinner and a relaxing evening on the main island.
After breakfast on your first morning in Fernando de Noronha, get acquainted with your surroundings by taking a morning hike to the clifftop lookout above Baia dos Golfinhos. Playful dolphins visit this bay, sometimes numbering in the hundreds, particularly in the early mornings. Continue the hike to Baia dos Porcos (named after the Cuban Bay of Pigs) and then Baia do Sancho, considered the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, where you will have the chance to swim and snorkel. Return to Vila dos Remedios via the coastal trail and visit beaches such as Cacimba do Padre, Bode, Americano and Boldro. Total excusion duration is 3 hours, and the hiking distances can be adjusted based on preferences.
For the remainder of your stay, fill your days with the island adventure of your choice. Activities abound on Fernando de Noronha during your Brazil:

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.

Kassi was really helpful in finding a safari in South Africa that met our various needs. She found things, despite my own hours of research, that I couldn’t find. She was incredibly responsive.

The itinerary was new to Adventure Life when we originally booked, but hit all the places we wanted to see. Unfortunately the September earthquake damaged one of our hotels. We caught the fact that it is not open before they did, and that was disappointing and required an itinerary revision. Also, sometimes answers to our questions were not as clear as in our past experiences with the company. Overall, it was a great trip.

The planning and pre trip logistics were excellent, no complaints.
The staff, guides, experiences, food and accommodations on the Legend were fabulous. I can highly recommend visiting the islands on the Galapagos Legend.
I had unrealistic expectations about flora and fauna in the Galápagos Islands. I was expecting lush and diverse environments teeming with friendly wild life.
The volcanic terrain is amazing, but I wasn’t expecting the pervasive dessert like terrain and climate. There certainly are amazing creatures that are relaxed around humans, but not in the quantity I imagined.
The snorkeling had its moments, but I’ve been in clearer water with more variety and quantity of fish and sea creatures.
Basically, the Galapagos is not as unique and as fabulous as I imagined. I’m glad I went, but won’t be returning.
