Situated on the verdant banks of the Rio Negro, surrounded by tropical jungle, Manaus is known as the gateway to South America’s heart - the Amazon Rainforest. Journey here to begin your thrilling expedition into the depths of this mighty jungle.

From Manaus, you’ll board a boat that will take you deep into the Amazon, following the winding river channels to reach your secluded jungle lodge. Most of the accommodation can only be reached by boat. Expect a true jungle experience on a Manaus tour, immersed in the sights and sounds of the rainforest, with howling monkeys dashing high overhead and parrots rolling calls ricocheting all around. Days will be spent fishing for piranhas and diving into the depths of the rainforest to meet local tribes and learn about their way of life. Jungle nights provide unparalleled vistas of the glittering, star-dazzled sky.

The gateway to the mighty Amazon rainforest

More than merely a jumping off point for an Amazon tour, the town of Manaus has its own set of attractions and sights. Take a trip to the ornate Opera house - once the most famous in the world; explore the Museu da Amazonia, home to an array of native artefacts and fauna; buy handmade leather gifts and souvenirs at Mercado Municipal Adolpho Lisboa.

A Manaus must-see is a trip to the “meeting of the waters” spot, where the black waters of the Rio Negro and the alkaline waters of Rio Solimões come together in a unique spectacle of whirlpools and colours to form the Amazon River.

We have a number of Manaus Amazon tours available and can tailor make any part of your itinerary to create a truly unique and memorable adventure. Get in touch today.

“Make sure you include a night hike as part of your jungle adventures, where you’ll be able to spot the rainforest’s nocturnal creatures, such as tree frogs, potoo birds and giant spiders.”

Barbara, Destination Specialist

“Manaus sits at the confluence of two of the world’s greatest rivers, the Rio Negro and the Amazon. At the meeting of the rivers, you will see great swirls of water, whirlpools and sometimes even dolphins. This is not a sight to miss.”
