Amazon Rainforest

A sea of canopies that stretches as far as the horizon, crossed by meandering rivers, channels, tributaries, rapids, silent igarapés and igapós. A world of water and breathing forest, producing clouds and its own climate, a world that whispers, chirps, swishes, whistles, and caws with thousand voices, while it hosts uncountable species most of them unknown to science until today. We bring you there, right into it, where the normal backpacker and Sunday tourist would not dare to go, to farther away and pristine regions. There, you will experience the Green Paradise which for others is the Green Hell. Our Indian guides will let you know their way of dealing with the forest and river: whether aboard our log-boat canoes or on heels, passing the nights under canopies of giant trees, chatting around the campfire, marveling on enchanted waterfalls amidst the deep forest and on top of the mountains, that offer the splendid view over an universe so unique and immense that it withstood during centuries all human efforts to put it down.

Our excursions, tours and expeditions to the nearer and deeper Amazonian environment start in Manaus. Manaus is located on the left banks of the black water Rio Negro river and about 18 km from meeting with the waters of the claylike white water Rio Solimões, at which point both rivers join into the great Amazon river. The “Jungle Metropolis” is the gateway to the inner Amazon region and has been of significant importance for the conquest of the whole region, a fact for which, the jungle theater and the harbor among others, deliver rich testimony. Founded by the Portuguese military during the 17th century, the significant economic development of Manaus took place at the end of the 19th century, with the worldwide demand for rubber or caoutchouc, at an all time high. At that time Brazil had the monopoly for the commodity which was extracted from the Hevea brasiliensis rubber tree.
