Adventure

The beaches and the dunes gave fame to Fortaleza but the capital of Ceará is also the ideal stop for those searching adrenaline in the many adventure activities. At sea, air or on land don’t miss the suggestions for an unforgettable trip: surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, diving, abseiling, canoeing and the popular sandboarding.

A long coastline with dunes, cliffs and lakes makes the sea-related sports especially important. In the city's beaches you may practice diving, surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing and these last two sports benefit from the winds that run along the coast. The Pedra da Risca do Meio is ideal for diving where you can view many shoals and rays. Still mentioning sea sports, Pólo Jericoacoara gained worldwide importance for practitioners of surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing, with perfect beaches in Cumbuco, Jericoacoara and Flecheiras. Here you can also venture out on sandboarding, a local invention, where the vertiginous dune descents are an advantage in this region. All these activities can also be practiced in the beaches of Canoa Quebrada, another coastal area of Ceará that has gained international recognition. For those who prefer to visit the region from the air, in the outskirts of Fortaleza you will find Sítio do Bosco, with a free flight ramp (gliding and paragliding) and all the necessary infrastructures to enjoy this sport. With your feet on the ground enjoy several hiking trails (duly indicated) in “Nacional Araripe" known as "Oásis of Sertão". You can also enjoy other adventure activities in the mountains of Aratanha and Baturité such as mountain biking, abseiling, canoeing and gliding. Now for ecotourism Ubajara National Park is a sanctuary.
