Tucano Amazon Riverboat
Embark on an expedition cruise deep into the Brazilian Amazon in complete comfort and sophistication.Learn More
The vast Amazon Basin stretches from the foothills of the Andean mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. The water flows the thousands of kilometers through a myriad of small rivers to the main rivers. This huge catchment area gathers an enormous amount of water that floods the forest downstream. The excursions take you to the narrow tributaries with dense vegetation and a dense tree canopy.
The riverboat also allows you to be in the rainforest but not so close to the forest, and to enjoy the comfort of "hotel" facilities while travelling on the water.
Moving along the river you make stops for excursions with your expert guides, and small canoes taking you from the boat to the shore.
The guides are with you on the boat and accompany you the excursions. There are essentially two types of guides : those who come from the cities where they studied the rainforest ecosystem, and so can convey a more "academic" understanding; and those who were born and lived in the forest, and so convey a more practical knowledge of how people use the trees, fruits and plants for life in the rainforest.
There are highlights throughout the year :
A visit to the Amazon rainforest is an experience in walks in dense forest with an exuberant vegetation. Walking under the dense tree canopy is a unique experience.
The dense vegetation reduces the visibility so that it is hard to see the wildlife:
