Getting There

Getting to Atins is a bit of an adventure in itself. We are quite a bit off the beaten track, so to avoid any unnecessary layovers and reduce the risk of unplanned hold-ups in Barreirinhas or elsewhere, we recommend taking some time and attention on planning your transfer to Atins. Our friends at Aloha Atins will gladly support you in getting all the T(ransport)s crossed and I(tinerarie)s dotted. One tip from us: book a river cruise from Barreirinhas to Atins and turn this leg of your trip into an excursion to enjoy!
