    Enjoy an exhilarating ride over the dunes, stopping along the way to view several points of interest.

    Your excursion begins at the pier where you will board your awaiting buggy and set-off to discover some of the unique sites found in the Natal area. From your special open air, rustic buggy, you will gain an entirely different perspective of northeast Brazil. Your drive begins by traveling first to Redinha Beach, following Praia do Forte and then crossing the Potengi River via the Newton Navarro Bridge. Upon arrival at the beach, you will have a short stop before proceeding on to the Genipabu Dunes.

    Catch your breath because your tour now moves into adventure mode as you traverse the high, moving sand hills of Genipabu. It's nothing short of pure fun and exhilaration as your driver navigates a track over the shifting dunes. Following your dune drive, you'll have additional stops at the local ecological reserve and the Genipabu Lagoon. Next, it's on to Pitangui Lagoon where you will have a change to relax with a refreshment or take a quick swim. Afterwards, return to the pier, passing by the golden dunes of Pitangui and Jacumã Lagoon along the way.
