Tour Description

Dedicated to providing you with an authentic experience, the Juma Amazon Lodge has carefully created a 4 day Amazon tour that takes advantage of its naturally beautiful surroundings.

On your journey to the lodge from Manaus, see the Meeting of the Waters, a striking natural phenomenon where the dark and contrasting sandy colors of the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões converge but never mix.

Encounter nocturnal wildlife up close on a night time jungle safari with your naturalist guide, and learn the techniques to spot caimans in the dark night.

Go bird-watching early in the morning when the sun rises majestically over the Amazon, and try the thrilling activity of piranha fishing.

Aside from the opportunities to observe the region's wildlife, this Amazon tour also offers the opportunity to experience the rainforest culturally, with excursions to visit the home of a Caboclo, and observe the tedious production process of manioc flour - a key economic activity of the region.

Get to know your knowledgeable guide in a casual setting during an informal talk, and listen to personal accounts of growing up here and the legends of the Amazon.

After exciting days of guided rainforest hikes and traversing the network of waterways that crisscross the vast area by canoe, rest your head at Juma Amazon Lodge, an eco-lodge designed to seamlessly blend into its natural surroundings. Its 19 bungalows are rustic in style and feature views of either the lush forest or the free-flowing river.
