This wonderful voyage travels up the Rio Negro into a rarely visited part of the Amazon rainforest, where the wildlife and flora is largely undisturbed.
With a naturalist guide you'll visit different habitats by boat and on foot: igapó forest, the strange and lovely seasonally flooded forest where orchids and bromeliads cling to overhanging trees that are home to fishing birds and iguanas; the terre firme forest whose tall trees with buttressed roots are most people's idea of Amazon rainforest; and the fantastically rich varzea forest, with colourful birds, magnificent trees draped with lianas and carpeted with orchids, and monkeys chattering in the branches.
The full itinerary detail is available on our website.
You should note: If you don’t have a lot of time, but still wish to experience the essence of the Amazon, a shorter four-night river trip aboard the Tucano operates from Manaus on alternate Mondays. Please contact us for details.
