Venture deep into seldom visited areas of the Amazon on a true expedition cruise for adventurous travellers.

The Tucano Experience: Venture further into the Brazilian Amazon wilderness aboard the specialist-built Tucaco Riverboat and in the company of experienced naturalist guides, who lead memorable small group shore excursions to pristine bio-diverse areas.

Excursions & Sightseeing: The daily schedule takes you ashore or into a smaller boat up to five times each day, sometimes via kayaks, other times in motorised canoes or often on foot, following primitive and little-trodden paths into the jungle. Hundreds of species of birds make their homes in this remote location, far from the reach of the city lights and visits to small communities will offer valuable insights into life in the world's biggest rainforest and their unique customs and culture. Ancient trees tower high, draped in vines at their base and covered with orchids. After dinner you will head out again, this time in search of the Amazon's mysterious nocturnal creatures.

Highlights: You will encounter a range of unique habitats, including both types of flooded forests and the extraordinary phenomenon of the Meeting of the Waters, where the silty light brown waters of the Rio Solimoes runs side-by-side for several miles with the dark current of the Rio Negro.
