More than 20 years experience
Discover the Amazon rainforest with an Amazon Brazil Jungle Tour or an Amazon Jungle Cruise from Off Roads Travel. Under the guidance of one of our native jungle guides with more than 20 years of experience, we ensure that your stay in the Amazon rainforest is unforgettable.
We start our tours and cruises from Manaus Brazil. Manaus is the gateway to the Amazon region and the starting point of many Amazon rainforest tours. Off Roads Travel distinguishes itself by not only offering tours in the more touristic areas, but by specializing in (private) deep jungle tours with a local guide.
Our jungle lodge is located at 5 hours away from Manaus in an area around the Rio Urubu river. Here you will find yourself completely isolated from the outside world for the ultimate experience. Off Roads Travel offers a unique opportunity to discover the jungle, do various activities and spend the night in the rainforest. The cruises offer a unique way to spend the night on the river and discover all the beauties of the Amazon in the meantime
Our 3-6 day jungle tours give you the opportunity to do jungle trekking, canoeing, wildlife spotting and camping in the jungle.
Located in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest, Manaus is the gateway for tours to the Amazon jungle. Read here how you can get to Manaus.
The Amazon region is characterized by two distinct periods: the “rainy season” and “less rainy season”. Read here the differences and benefits from both seasons.
Unfortunality, knowing what to pack to the rainforest can be difficult. That’s why we want to help you with our experience so we made you a jungle gear packing list.
Off Roads Travel is specialized in full service Deep Jungle Tours. We are a daughter company from Ney Eco Adventures. That is why we work with guides who have more than 20 years of experience and have already shown hundreds of people the beauties of the Amazon Rainforest.
We do not focus on offering the cheapest or most luxurious rainforest tours in Brazil, but on simply offering an authentic Amazon Jungle tour experience at a fair price.
We cater destinations that fit your adventurous and courageous spirit. Our goal is to encourage people to be more in contact with the internal and external nature and enable everyone to enjoy an outdoor leisure time in places where most people won’t go.
Completely cut off from the outside world, you will discover how special it is to become completely one with nature and your surroundings again. The Amazon rainforest is one of the most unique places in the world and the best way to realize this is to experience it for yourself with an Amazon Rainforest tour with Off Roads Travel.
We operate as an intermediary between you and our partner tour operators. We work to bring great minds together.
With our tours we focus on the real undiscovered areas in the Amazon Rainforest for the real Off Roads Travel experience.
We prefer the personal experience by keeping our groups small. That’s why the maximum size is 6 people for the real personal experience.
20+ YEARS EXPERIENCE
Our guides were born and raised in the Amazon and have been showing travelers the beauty of the Amazon for over 20 years.
WHERE AM I GOING?
The Amazon River is the largest river in the world and flows through more than the half of South America. It originates at 5,200m height in the snow-capped Andes in Peru, then plunges through chasms and ravines, flows through the vast jungle-covered Amazon basin, before finally emptying into the Atlantic Ocean. In total, the Amazon River is 6,400 km long and flows through 8 different countries, of which ⅔ part through Brazil. The surrounding Amazon rainforest is also the largest rainforest on earth. The Brazilian Amazon is rich in countless different animals and plants. It is one of the most important areas for our ecosystem, containing 40% of all flora and fauna in the world.
Our Discover Amazon Tour & Amazon Wonders Tour take place approximately 200 km north of the Brazilian city of Manaus. Our Amazon jungle lodge Pousada Ecológica do Rio Urubu is located on the Rio Urubu River. This is the area where your Amazon rainforest tour guide Ney and his brother grew up. They know the Amazon and this area as their own backyard. This is why we can offer an unique experience in an area where the tours are offered entirely deep in the jungle. There will be no more civilization here.
The Rio Urubu is one of the largest tributary of the Amazon River. The area along the Rio Urubu river is recongnizable by its vegetation. The area is one of the places with the most diverse tree species in the world. One of the beautiful sights in this area are the many swamps. Due to the constant changes in water levels, the Rio Urubu floods surrounding areas next to the river. This creates beautiful fairytale scenes. The advantage of the location around the Urubu River is that it is mainly a mosquito free area! The acidity in the black water prevents mosquitoes from laying eggs. This is why this area is so suitable for our deep Amazon jungle tours.
With our Amazon Cruises and on the last day with the Amazon Wonders Tour you will visit the Rio Negro, an area closer to Manaus to go to the more ‘commercialized part’ of the Amazon. Here you get the opportunity to swim with pink river dolphins and visit an indigenous tribe. The Rio Negro is the largest, and therefore best known, tributary of the Amazon River. Most day tours are provided here from Manaus. The river is easily accessible and is a gateway to the Jaú National Park and the Anavilhanas Archipelago where our cruises will take you to see some amazing animals and plants.
