Itinerary

Day 1: From Manaus into the Wild

In the morning you will be picked up at your hotel in Manaus to start your journey into the Amazon Rainforest. On the way to the lodge you will be able to see the famous “Meeting of the Waters” where the different colored Rio Negro and Rio Solimoes meet to become the Rio Amazonas. If you are lucky you will also spot pink dolphins and giant water lilies (depending on the season). The whole journey to the lodge takes about 3 hours and is quite diversified due to land and water transportation.

By boat you will arrive at the lodge where the friendly staff will receive you with a welcome drink. Your first jungle adventure is scheduled for after lunch. Led by your English-speaking guide, you will paddle with a canoe through small creeks (igarapés) and flooded forest areas (igapós) for a first close encounter with the mighty Amazon Rainforest. During this trip it is also possible to swim in the river and with some luck you will see a pink dolphin swimming next to your canoe, a monkey family playing in the trees, or a sloth hanging from a branch. Later on, dinner will be served at the restaurant before you head out on a night excursion to spot caimans and observe the nocturnal life of the Amazon.
