AMAZON DREAM (5 days / 4 nights cruise - 6 days / 5 nights - 10 days / 9 nights)



CRUISING PROGRAM

Three to four hours of sailing a day ... and itineraries, stopovers, unique programs that reveal the many facets of the Amazon.
The great spectacle of nature, the fascinating observation of the fauna and the flora ... but also the encounters with the village communities, the discovery of their craftsmanship, their traditions.
The emotion of the primary forest and the exploration of the iguarapés, these small tributaries which sink under the lianas ... then the softness of the beaches of white sand from August to February, and the tranquility of the transparent waters.
At nightfall, when the Amazon night shakes its mystery with sleepy nature and surprises the secular visitor, the boat becomes a safe haven ... And some evenings, musicians and dancers take travelers in the bewitching rhythms of foro, carimbo or the brega, or it is an impromptu departure for a moonlit party ...
