The trip Cruise To The Heart Of The Amazon starts from and ends in Manaus. It is a wildlife tour that takes 7 days taking you through Manaus in Brazil. Cruise To The Heart Of The Amazon is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This cruise deep into the Amazon rainforest conjures up connotations of early explorers travelling into the unknown. Travelling on board your boat, you'll catch a rare glimpse into the beauty of the Rio Negro Amazon River and rainforest, as well as an ecosystem teeming with wildlife. You have ample opportunity to disembark the boat into smaller launches to discover the tributaries of the Rio Negro Amazon and explore the rainforest on foot, revealing a side most travellers will never see. Cayman, Pink Dolphins and toucan pave the way on your cruise down the mighty Amazon which carries more water than any other river in the world and is responsible for roughly 20% of the fresh water flowing into the world's oceans.

“11 strangers + me. All smiley faces which our 2 guides, Allen & Justin made sure we all stayed that way. All the hotels, food & food for packed lunches was very good. The choice of hikes available each day were perfect for us to reach our own 'goals'. It's was also nice to have 'free' time too. Both guides were informative & very professional thoughout, offering plenty of advice & maps etc when required. We were a good group too, when we were required to be out & ready we didn't let them down! Keep up the good work. PS: the 'Fall' was awesome too.”
Meet at 07:00 hrs in the hotel lobby. Following a brief walk to the port you board your home for your seven day expedition down the mighty Amazon River; cruising the world's largest river island system, the Anavilhanas Archipelago. The view from the custom built observation deck reveals the intricate series of tangled vegetation by the water's edge. By mid-afternoon you travel beyond civilisation and enter the Amazon wilderness area with lush dense rainforest on both sides. It's commonplace to see the stunning fins of the Pink River Dolphins and a multitude of colourful birds communicating through song as you sail deeper into the Amazon. We ensure you are treated to magnificent vistas of virgin forest and vegetation, taller and broader than you have seen anywhere else in the world. Departing the boat in the afternoon you board smaller launches in search of Amazonian wildlife and, weather permitting, the opportunity to swim in some of the worlds cleanest and most refreshing water.
Destination
  • Manaus
Meals
  • Lunch and dinner included
This morning you'll have the opportunity to explore deep into the forest on a guided kayak expedition. You'll glide silently along remote small streams shaded by a riot of tropical plants and serenaded by exotic bird song. This helps bring your Amazon experience to life and offers a greater understanding and appreciation of your trip. Around midday you begin sailing again with the possibility of a swim in the afternoon. Boarding the launches again, you head out exploring and listening to a sunset chorus of birds and frogs. The launches offer more than just the chance to leave the confines of the ship, it's a chance for you to get up close and personal to the beauty of the Amazon which helps put the grand scale of the rainforest into perspective, a view that you may not appreciate from the boat. This could well be one of your favourite experiences on the trip. Tonight you will take a launch to search for nocturnal wildlife.
Destination
  • Lago Turia
Meals
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
In the early hours of the morning you explore the rainforest on a river launch. As it changes from night to day, this is when the wildlife is at its most active and you should be able to see monkeys, birds and more. You return for breakfast followed by a walk in the forest. You travel during the middle of the day in the Motor Yacht Tucano which is the perfect time to sit back with a drink and admire the lush surrounds and enjoy wildlife spotting, a favourite past time of many Amazonian explorers. In the afternoon you stop for an excursion. You may travel into the night which for stargazers and astronomers, reveals a blanket of dotted holes in the sky, just don't forget your mosquito repellent!
Destination
  • Lago Buriti
Meals
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
After your morning excursion delving into the Amazon forest floor, you navigate the winding watery path along the heavily forested shore, scouting for wildlife. There's the option of stopping at a settler's home carved directly from the forest. In the early afternoon you'll be near an extraordinary river called the Rio Jaueperi. Here you'll see a kind of forest known as the varzea (floodplain). The fertile soils and abundant fish of the varzea have sustained local people for generations, and are vital to the economy of the Amazon region. You scout along the shoreline for some of the extraordinary creatures found only in this unique environment. Weather permitting you'll have a night excursion to observe nocturnal creatures.
Destination
  • Rio Jaueperi
Meals
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
Today you depart the Rio Jaueperi and head downstream on the Rio Negro exploring a new collection of rainforest habitats. In the daytime you walk through the forest and in the evening continue your hunt for nocturnal wildlife, often revealing a very different side to that experienced during the day.
Destination
  • West Bank of the Rio Negro
Meals
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
This morning you explore the Lago Janauari Ecological Park where the thick brown water of the Amazon flows swiftly through the forest. This area is traditionally a superb place to view wildlife. Around midday you travel to the `Encontra das Aguas', an area several miles long where two of the world's largest and mighty rivers converge, the Amazon and the Negro. It's a beautiful sight to see the turbulence of nature's forces joining and you'll clearly see the dark waters of the Negro running beside the opaque brown water of the Amazon. In the afternoon go in search of one of the hidden streams in the area to view more of the Amazon's beautiful and bizarre creatures. Tonight you celebrate and have the opportunity to taste the national cocktail of Brazil, the Caipirinha made from the local spirit Cachaça (sugar cane rum). Sip one of these and perhaps try your samba dancing on the top deck under a starry sky, the perfect end to a truly special adventure.
