At a Glance

Discover the very heart of the Amazon — the biggest, most biodiverse rainforest on Earth — on this private riverboat adventure. Led by naturalists, walk the jungle to find giant trees and exotic plants. Take morning canoe excursions to search for tropical birds as the forest wakes up. After dark, use the boat’s spotlights to see nocturnal jungle-dwellers like caimans. Encounter pink dolphins and even fish for piranhas.
Activity Level
Let's Go!
Walking up to one mile over uneven, potentially slippery terrain in tropical conditions; some unavoidable stairs. Climbing in and out of the riverboat's flat-bottomed, large, 16 passenger motor canoes.
