IMG 6140

There are several activities to do in the Amazon. In the area around Manaus there are several tour providers that offer tours where it is possible to swim with pink river dolphins. In addition, there are several tour providers that offer day tours in Manaus. There are also tour operators that offer tours deeper in the Amazon region. These tours are considered authentic and often last several days as it sometimes takes 4 hours to reach these destinations. During these tours you get to experience the purity of the jungle at its best. During these types of tours you go into the jungle with a native guide and experience all the flora and fauna that can be found there. Think of spotting alligators, spotting dolphins and discovering all the medicinal plants that can be found in the jungle.

Jungle Trekking

Exploring the rainforest by foot is the ultimate jungle experience. Trekking through the Amazon gives you the unique opportunity to see wildlife and learn up-and-close about the unique medical plants of the rainforest. Watch the ground for tarantulas, anacondas, poison dart frogs and learn how to find drinkwater in the jungle through lianas or natural water sources. Despite the diverse wildlife in the Amazon it can be quite difficult to spot the animals through the large vegetation of the rainforest. You will be amazed how remarkable the skills are of the native tour guides to spot the animals by listening to certain sounds to locate them. 

Kayaking

Kayaks offer unrivaled access to small tributaries and the mysteries of the flood forest in the famed Amazon. Their silent progress makes them outstanding for wildlife viewing and encounters that are missed by passengers who travel by motorized boats.

Camping in the Jungle

Have you always dreamed of a real adventure in the Amazon? Try a camping night in the jungle! Trek through the jungle and sleep at least one night in a self-made camp. During this overnight stay you can hear the Amazon awakening in the night. Learn how to make a campfire, a shelter of trees and leaves and sleep in a hammock. This is the ultimate Amazon jungle experience

Cayman Spotting

The cayman is common to see in the Amazon. During the day you can find them sunbathing on the riverbanks or they seek shelter in the shallow waters of the swamps. But at night these predators leave their shelters to hunt on animals like capybaras, otters and fish.

This makes the night a perfect time for cayman spotting. With a flashlight you can shine on the waters hoping for their eyes to reflect, so you can spot them easily.

Piranha fishing

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

If you want to survive in the Amazon, you have to learn to fish. The piranha is the most popular fish to catch because of the high numbers present in the Amazon River and because they are easy to catch.

Try to find a quiet spot in the river with your boat or kayak, preferably in the mangroves, put some chicken on your hook and take out your fishing rod. Patience is the key but when you have it you are guaranteed to catch a piranha.Piranhas are freshwater fish and have a delicious flavor similar to chicken.

 

Swimming with pink river dolphins

Manaus is one of the few places in the world where you can peacefully swim with pink river dolphins in their natural habitat.

The pink river dolphin is the only freshwater dolphin in the world and is only found in the Amazon river. These super intelligent dolphins live in groups of up to 15 animals and mainly eat fish and shellfish.
