The remote and unexplored Amazon is the largest rain forest and home to the highest population of indigenous people in Brazil. With few exceptions, the jungle is relatively untouched and we will have abundant opportunities to experience a fascinating adventure observing the region's flora and fauna while learning from our local hosts. The best option for exploring this lush region lies in this expedition of five days that includes hiking, nocturnal observation of caimans, piranha fishing, swimming with the pink Amazon dolphins, a jungle survival tour, a visit to the caboclo communities and canoe trips along the igarapes and the igapes. It is a truly unique and unparalleled experience.
