Your Amazonian experience starts in the Tapajós National Forest, commonly called the Caribbean of the Amazon. Once settled on board, take a tender to shore where you will trek through verdant jungle towards Vovó, a tree that is believed to be 1,100 years old and the largest in the Amazon. Accompanied by a local naturalist, you will explore the flooded forest while you listen to the cacophony of sounds that surround you.
Head out in kayaks towards Alter do Chao village, exploring what the islands here have to offer. Spend the day with the locals where you will get the opportunity to visit a unique workshop for authentic Native American handicrafts. Later in the afternoon take a paddleboard down the Tapajós to a secluded beach for an alfresco dinner prepared by your yachts’ crew.
Carry along the Amazon towards Manaus where the rivers span reaches a vast four-kilometres and splits into narrow tributaries. Observe the flanking wilderness up close as you cruise with your onboard guide. Venture to shore where you will meet a team of ex-Army officers who will equip you with essential survival skills for a day in the jungle. With your Pelorus guide, follow a trail through the rainforest and put your new skills into practice, identifying edible foods, building a fire, and spearfishing. Spend the afternoon building a shelter with the option to stay overnight in purpose-built hammocks.
