    • 7 Days
    • Brazil

    The state of Amazonas, remote and, of course, still with many unexplored corners, houses more rainforest and more indigenous groups than any other place in Brazil. With few exceptions, the jungle is relatively intact and the opportunities to live a fascinating experience observing fauna and flora are abundant.

    The best way to explore this exuberant region is an expedition by boat and then in one of the jungle hotels or lodges. We can live an authentic interaction with the community, which will guide us on an intimate journey through the endless Amazon rainforest through hiking, nocturnal observation of animals, piranha fishing, visits to communities and tours in canoe rowing by the igarapés and the igapós. In this jungle adventure we will also learn about the regional customs and the different exotic plants and fruits of the region.

    Going to the Amazon is already a transformative experience, doing it in this way is something that remains for a lifetime.
