There are several ways to see the wonders of the Amazon: hotels, lodges and boat tours. A great way to see and enjoy nature, especially on the amazing waterways of the Amazon, is to be agile in this wonderful
environment and to be always in the midst of the jungle, especially at dawn and dusk. That’s the xperience that Amazon Clipper provides.

DAY 1 – Wednesday – Meet at the lobby of the Hotel Tropical at 2:00pm. Board the Amazon Clipper and depart towards the Amazon River, while we enjoy a welcome drink and are informed about the routes and
facilities. After a snack, we’ll meet in the leisure room for lectures about the Amazon, from which we can get a better understanding of the ecology of the Amazon. Before dinner, there will be time to enjoy a
caipirinha, Brazil’s national drink, while watching the sunset. After dinner, we’ll explore the streams and ponds, and with the help of spotlights we’ll search for crocodiles and alligators, and sometimes even night-hawks, snakes, sloths and frogs.
DAY 2 – Thursday – Early in the morning we’ll explore the rivers and ponds in our canoes and ncounter birds that feed on fruits, such as parrots and toucans. After breakfast, we’ll leave for a walk
through the jungle, discovering surprising fragrances in the leaves, fruits, woods and animals. Around noon we’ll return, and before lunch we can go for a swim. In the afternoon, we’ll navigate through the Anavilhanas National Park, one of the largest freshwater archipelagos in the world. In the late afternoon, we’ll go out in canoes and learn more about the wonderful natural park.
DAY 3 – Friday – Early in the morning we’ll spend some time fishing for piranhas and other fish. After breakfast, we’ll visit a community where we’ll find many typical fruits of the Amazon, such as
cupuaçu and taperebá, palms such as açaí, tucumã and pupunha. We’ll learn about the preparation of farinha de mandioca (cassava flour) as well as the health and education system of the local children. After lunch, we’ll stop at one of the beautiful white-sand beaches to swim in the dark water and watch the pink olphins. In the late afternoon, we’ll explore the area by canoe and observe the wildlife. Dinner will be served on the way towards the Amazon River.
DAY 4 – Saturday – Early in the morning we’ll explore the Lake January Ecological Park. This area is generally a great place to observe wildlife and see Vitória Regia, the giant water lilies. While we
have breakfast, the boat will begin its navigation towards the “Meeting of the Waters” – a unique spectacle where the muddy waters of the Amazon and the dark waters of Rio Negro flow side by side without mixing for several miles. Making the trip back, we’ll pass by Manaus, observing the floating docks, the market, the old customs house, and the Opera dome, arriving around 11:30 on the Pier of Tropical Hotel.
