HATCH Adventures are unforgettable! We experience other cultures through meaningful encounters. This guided trip will be full of interactions with local artists, healers, activists and entrepreneurs. You’ll gain insight into the country’s music, art, shamanism and nature.
Mike Polarny is a HATCHER who has serenaded several HATCH events with sounds from a variety of cultures. He produced the HATCH Adventures Cuba in 2020 which left the participants deeply touched and amazed. His connections to the community and the art scene make him your perfect guide into the local culture.
Full of interactions with the locals and into the nature..
Enjoy the best of Bahia & Brazil while getting inspired and healed.
Brazil in a nutshell! A multi-cultural and lively town at the junction of the river and the ocean. You will be waking up to the sound of the waves at the magical Sage Point hotel. Morning meditations, yoga or surfing classes are your options. In the afternoons we will visit a capoeira school and will take a boat trip on the river. In the evenings we will be strolling through colorful streets, taste tropical drinks, enjoy Bahia food, listen and dance to samba and forro concerts. You will feel welcome like never before!
Time for a full immersion into the nature and healing. We are moving to Balinese-style houses by the ocean. A private restaurant, an eco-friendly swimming pool, a meditation room in a tropical garden. Here we are meeting "the sacred medicines": ayahuasca, kambo, sananga, rapé and... Bufo - the "molecule of God" for those who want to be reborn!
We'll hold a cocoa ceremony, dance ecstatically, sweat in a temazcal. We will walk into the "Mata Atlantica" - the most diverse biosphere in the world. Masseurs, therapists, yogis and plant based chefs will take care of your balance. Meet Polarny's local community - musicians, artists, creatives. You can surf the waves, do paragliding or play foot volleyball.
Explore the breathtaking "diamond plateau". Rocky plains covered with desert vegetation, crisscrossed by spectacular canyons, brown rivers and waterfalls. Miners used to search here for gold and diamonds.
We will stop in two unique towns - the picturesque Lençois and the hippy Vale do Capão. We'll hike to the Cachoeira da Fumaça (second tallest in Brazil), see a magical sunset at Morro do Pai Ignácio, drift in Poço Azul, zip line at Poço do Diabo. The evenings will be filled with delicious foods, folk concerts and parties with locals.
The Gran Final! We're arriving at the first capital of Brazil, founded by the Portuguese in 1549. We are staying in the beautiful post-colonial Pelourinho district from the UNESCO heritage list. It will be time to shop, rest before departure or catch the last breath of the ocean breeze.
A walking tour with a local, a closing dinner and music venues are at stake. You will take your flight well rested and fully inspired.
