The largest fresh water forest park in the world still holds many secrets. Due to its somewhat difficult access, its paths, waterfalls, and creeks are not heavily explored by tourists. Monkeys, sloths, river dolphins, otters and birds abound. Riverside communities with genuine northern Brazilian charm give the human touch to a region where nature still rules.

Tour’s Program

Depart Manaus early this morning by air-conditioned van, arriving in Novo Airão by lunchtime. Your family's Amazon adventure begins as you board the Jacaré-Açu, a spacious, regional-style wooden boat, and your home for the next few days. Navigating through the Anavilhanas Archipelago, enjoy a healthy lunch and an orientation on the routes, ecosystem and water basins, Amazonian flora and fauna, and the local customs you’ll experience throughout your journey. At this early point, you might have already spotted Tucuxi and Pink River Dolphins, and birds such as the Cocoi Heron, Great Egret, Blue-Yellow Macaws and Festive Parrot. You’ll stop for a fun splash in the river, before heading onwards toward Madadá. This evening, choose between being rocked to sleep aboard the Jacaré-Açu or snuggling into a cozy hammock at the Mirante do Madadá.
Catch the sunrise in Madadá and dig into a hearty breakfast of seasonal fruits, jams, tapioca, “tucumã” and other local delights. Then, you’ll depart on a 3-hour round-trip hike through old-growth forests, ending at the Madadá Caves (a shorter option is available for parents with younger children). Throughout the trek, you’ll learn a few tricks on how to survive in the jungle. Upon your return, visit a native ranch and fruit orchards, followed by a refreshing dip in the Rio Negro. Enjoy lunch onboard, and then head to the “Praia do Sono” (“Sleepy Beach”) for some fun and relaxation. This evening we’ll drop anchor at the aptly named Sleepy Beach, and doze off to the sounds of nature.
At dawn, we’ll start our cruise to the IBAMA base, where we’re granted special access to the Jaú National Park – the largest forest reserve in South America and an excellent example of tropical rainforest conservation • Navigating the tranquil, mirror-like waters of the Jaú River, we may encounter a variety of birds and mammals, including giant otters and Amazonian manatees, while jaguars roam the nearby forests • Activities today include a hike to the Samaúma, the biggest tree on the Rio Negro, which can grow to be over 50 meters tall. For many children, a face-to-face meeting with this “Queen of the Forest” is among their favorite trip highlights • After our trek, we visit one of the parks’ magnificent waterfalls.
A special visit to the Aturiá community. Learn about a different way of life in a genuine and spontaneous way. Meet the locals, practice the local customs, visit the fruit garden and flour mill, play with the local children. There's something for everyone.
Climb the Great Chestnut Tree (optional not included, must be requested at booking) or enjoy a swim in the river.
In the afternoon, hike through virgin forest to Itaubal waterfall, in search for the big mammals. Take a cool dip in the waterfalls at the end of the track.
We’ll arrive in Novo Airão by mid-morning, in time to feed and photograph Pink River Dolphins at the river’s edge • Next, we’ll enjoy a tour of the city, visiting the shipyards, local artisan shops and other city attractions. Many of the crafts from this area are made from the straw, vines and wood found in the jungle • We’ll gather for one last meal together on board, before shuttling back to Manaus, where our trip ends by mid-afternoon.
