💎 Why we love it ?

Discover the Amazon Rainforest with the comfort of a luxury ship in 5 Days Cruise in the Heart of the Amazon Rainforest! The Amazon is almost mythical: a green and vast world of water and forest, where the tops of immense trees hide more than one-third of the species that live on Earth. With this travel program, which includes a luxury cruise along with the Rio Negro, you will have the opportunity to make an intense immersion in this wonderful region, with tours in the jungle, closely observing the forest, the animals, and the culture of the local communities. The cruise ship offers spacious all-outside cabins, with two lower beds or one queen-size bed, private bathroom facilities with hot shower, individual air-conditioning, and safety box. It also has an air-conditioned restaurant with meals served in buffet style, a leisure deck with a large covered area for outdoor sightseeing, and plenty of comfortable seating, as well as a sun deck with panoramic views of 360°.


🏁 Tour Itinerary: Cruise in the Heart of the Amazon Rainforest

Day 1: Arrival at Manaus

Welcome to Manaus: the entrance door to the biggest ecological reservation on the planet: the Amazon rainforest!
Manaus is a city surrounded by water, with the main roadway being the giant Rio Negro, the river that flows into the Solimoes River and creates the Amazon River. From 1890 to 1920 a regional economic boom based on natural rubber production brought prosperity to the city and most of Manaus’ majestic buildings and homes, including the cathedral and ornate opera house, dating back to that time.
It is hot year-round in this city-amidst-the-waters, with temperatures usually from 86 – 96 degrees F.
Arrive at the airport and meet with the driver for the transfer to the accommodation.

🏚️ Hotel Option: Villa Amazonia or similar accommodation.


Day 2: Embark and Sail up the Rio Negro

Breakfast at the hotel and meeting with the driver to reach the cruise meeting point at 2 pm.
Boarding and start of navigation up the Rio Negro.
Enjoy fresh fruit juice, while you hear some useful information about the roadmap and facilities.
After a snack, meet in the living room for lectures about the Amazon, through which you will have a good first understanding of the preservation and ecology of the Amazon.
