HIGHLIGHTS

PROGRAMMING

Full of interactions with the locals and into the nature..

Enjoy the best of Bahia & Brazil while getting inspired and healed.

Itacaré

3 nights

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!

Serra Grande

5 nights

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.

Chapada Diamantina

6 nights

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.

Salvador de Bahia

2 nights

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.

This trip was absolutely amazing and so incredibly well curated. My husband and I got to explore Cuba in all its beauty from the perspective of a local, and we couldn't have asked for a more in-depth experience than that! Thank you Mike and your team for curating a beautiful experience, we will highly recommend you to others!
By Radhika M for Hatch Adventures | January 2020 | Cuba on 11 Feb, 2020
A carefully curated group of some 25 CEOs entrepreneurs, inventors, engineers and artists is not your average tour group. Fortunately Sound Traveler is not your average tour company! Mike Polarney's artfully constructed and beautifully executed tour managed the impossible - to herd this wayward and unruly bunch across large swathes of Cuba without ever making us feel herded. Mike has perfected the art of leading from behind. He quietly manages to steer and direct a group, like a patient sheep-dog following behind, rounding up stragglers without any apparent stress or strain. The tour was beautifully organized. Full day trips to the countryside, eco-farms and tobacco plantations, were leavened by short visits to galleries, art installations and music events. Strenuous days had stops at a beach or a health spa built in. The food we were given was superb and, as befits the name of the company, every evening ended with the glorious sounds of Cuban music. Mike himself is a musician and his deep contacts with the Cuban music scene meant that we got to meet many Cuban musicians and hear the best of the best of Cuban music. Another hugely impressive feature of this tour... we had not one but four charismatic and deeply knowledgeable guides with us at all times. Katia, Rioger, Leo and Rainier were not only our guides, they became our friends, and hugely added to the quality of our Havana experience. I cannot speak too highly of Mike and Sound Traveler. If you want a real insider's look at this complex, beautiful and much misunderstood country this is the way to go! Jon Amiel LA Feb 2020

This was the most memorable trip, in a one of a kind place, hosted by the loveliest people and traveling with the best group imaginable. Muchas Gracias querido Miguelito and to the rest of the Hatchers who made this such an amazing adventure.
By Elias C for Hatch Adventures | January 2020 | Cuba on 05 Feb, 2020
Mike and Sound Traveler created the perfect Cuban experience. We traveled like locals and ate like kings. We visited small art communities and heard music that still has me dancing. CIgars! Rhumba! Mojitos! Hemingway! Rooftop raves! Vintage convertibles! Every day was an adventure.
By Wendy S for Hatch Adventures | January 2020 | Cuba on 04 Feb, 2020
Wonderful experience meeting the people of Cuba. The days were full of events from meeting artists and musicians, organic farming staff, yoga and spa enterprises, religious and cultural settings and local community centers for the artistic enrichment of children. We had a local guide accompany us which enriched our understanding of life in Cuba.
