Tour Description

This 4 day Amazon tour with Anavilhanas Lodge provides a comprehensive overview of the region, and with a carefully curated itinerary, blends the quintessential Amazonian experiences of piranha fishing and caiman spotting with more laid back and cultural activities.

Experience the Amazon's diverse landscape as you glide through black-water flooded forests on a wooden canoe, and hike on dryland forests while learning about the 80000 varieties of plants that grow in the region, some of them boasting powerful healing properties.

Travel along the Rio Negro and experience the Amazon from a cultural standpoint by meeting a local riverside community, visiting the home of a Caboclo, and taking part in the traditions of the Waimiri-Atroari tribe, just one of some 350 different ethnic groups in this vast region.

Stay at the Anavilhanas Lodge, 180 km from Manaus at the entrance of scenic Anavilhanas National Park, and retreat to one of 22 air-conditioned rooms to recharge at the end of each day, 2 of which are named the Panoramic Bungalows, and feature a glass wall that looks out to the Amazon jungle.

Unwind with a long soak in their outdoor pool that overlooks the free-flowing Rio Negro, or sip on a selection of caipirinhas and regional wines at the onsite bar after an exciting day of excursions.
