Bahia is an abundant land covered with long empty beaches and the most diverse forest in the world - the Mata Atlantica. Fresh springs, clean rivers and hidden waterfalls feed the Ocean which brings back rains and breeze. The soil nurtures the nature like nowhere else.
It is home to many cultures. Indigenous tribes have been present here for centuries. Portuguese arrived in the year 1500 making Salvador their main port. Bahia became the epicentre of African religions, music and dance. It’s a real melting-pot that Polarny calls his home.
