TOP DESTINATIONS IN THE AMAZON
Our tours take place in different locations. We have chosen these locations because they are all unique and all have their own characteristic features. Here is a short explanation about the locations and the tours that go with them.
Manaus is the capital of the Amazon region. The city is located in the north of Brazil and is the starting point of all our Amazon Rainforest tours. In the 19th century, Manaus was the rubber center of the world. Manaus flourished because of this and this can still be seen in the many architectural buildings from that time.
Our Rio Urubu Lodge is located on the river of the same name, the Rio Urubu. The Rio Urubu is one of the largest, yet lesser-known tributaries of the Amazon River. Our lodge is located about 200 km from Manaus. This is the area where our native tour guides Ney and his brother grew up.
Located about 100 kilometers north of Manaus, Presidente Figueiredo’s Sanctuary Waterfall (Cachoeira Santuário) is one of the top travel destinations for visitors to the region. Stationed along the Urubu River, where black waters meet the muddy Amazon, Sanctuary Waterfall is surrounded by thick rain forest and massive mossy rocks
The Rio Negro is the largest and most famous tributary of the Amazon River. The Rio Negro flows past Manaus. For this reason, this area is slightly more commercialized than other parts of the Amazon River in Brazil, but it is certainly no less beautiful.
