The largest and most biodiverse tropical rainforest on Earth
The Amazon Rainforest is located in a vast basin that covers over one third of Brazil and is considered to be the lungs of the world. Hidden beneath the thick rainforest canopy is an ecosystem of extraordinary biodiversity and home to a spectacular array of flora and fauna. A journey into the Amazon is a magical encounter with nature, escaping civilisation to reach secluded areas of pristine rainforest and immerse yourself underneath an infinite ocean of stars whilst sleeping in the jungle. The interior of the region would be almost impenetrable were it not for the mighty Amazon River, which acts as a highway running from its source in the Andes Mountains down to the Atlantic Ocean in northern Brazil. Local communities straddle the banks of the river, forging a living and navigating the huge networks of tributaries and waterways.

The Meeting of the Waters is a must-see natural phenomenon, where the heavily yellow silt-laden Rio Solimoes meets the black waters of the Rio Negro, as they converge to create the Amazon River. It is also one of the best places to see the distinctive and playful pink river dolphins.

Brazilian Amazon Lodges - What to Do & See
Excellent naturalist guides provide insights into the different species and ecosystems, as you trek amongst towering trees, following the noises of the native wildlife and cries of howler monkeys passing overhead. Peaceful boat trips take you through forest waterways to explore local communities and learn about the natural healing properties of local plants, the local economy and the techniques used to survive in a jungle environment. The dense vegetation hides much of the animal life amongst the foliage, though or a night or early morning trek in the rainforest can provide rare glimpses of the nocturnal wildlife. Also, the seasonal rise and fall in water levels creates narrow, twisting creeks and a maze of small islands covered in virgin rainforest.

Brazilian Amazon Lodges - Where to Stay
Explore the depths of the Amazon on river cruise aboard the Tucano expeditionary vessel and reach some of the least touched rainforest in the Amazon region, entering areas seldom visited to seek out the wildlife that few ever see. We have an excellent selection of characterful jungle lodges, some a short boat ride from Manaus such as the Amazon Ecopark Lodge whilst others require several hours of travelling but located in more pristine areas of rainforest. It is also well worth sleeping a night in the jungle, cocooned in your hammock underneath the night sky and illuminating Milky Way starlight.
