Summary

Last updated on September 16th, 2020 at 11:26 am

The River Amazon is vast and beautiful and a visit should not be rushed. Most Amazon tours visit just one region of the rainforest. In this Amazon rainforest tour, you’ll get into the remote heart of the jungle and visit different areas experiencing the contrast of an Amazon cruise and an Amazon lodge stay. To start, explore the River Amazon and its major tributary the Rio Negro on a five-day cruise by small expedition vessel shared with just a handful of other travelers. Make regular landings as you head up into remote stretches of the river. Following the cruise, head to the Mamirauá Reserve and stay three nights in a community-run, floating Amazon lodge. Mamirauá is the largest protected area in Brazil and a far cry from some of the more touristy Amazon jungle tours. There is the possibility to extend this trip (at extra cost) into the Colombian Amazon with a stay in an Amazon lodge upriver of the Colombian town of Leticia allowing exploration of a third region of the Amazon.

Your Amazon cruise is on the M/Y Tucano, a small, authentic, yet comfortable ship with just nine cabins – all with private bathrooms. The cruise starts and ends in Manaus. A typical day will see you make excursions into the forest, this could be on foot, by small boat or kayak. You can visit remote villages, fish for piranhas, and enjoy guided walks along the way. The ship is among the most sustainable in the Amazon, solar energy is used, guides are well trained in responsible tourism practices and trips are operated in a way that aims to minimize the impact on the environment.

Your floating Amazon lodge is Uakari Lodge, reached by a flight from Manaus to Tefe and then a 90-minute boat ride. There are 10 guest rooms in this community-run lodge. During the Amazon high water season, the lodge does not touch land and is completely floating with excursions being carried out via the river in small boats. In the Amazon dry season (September to March), excursions are on foot and by boat.

If you’d like to combine the Brazilian and Colombian Amazon, a stay at Calanoa Lodge is an excellent option. The lodge is right on the banks of the River Amazon and has several interesting communities nearby. Pink river dolphins can often be found in the area. This is a great way to link Brazil and Colombia.

Optional: extend the trip into the Colombian Amazon.
