TAPAJOS NATIONAL FOREST
Your Amazon adventure begins in Tapajós National Forest, also known as the ‘Caribbean of the Amazon’. After having settled into your yacht, you’ll reach the shore by tender before trekking towards Vovó—the largest tree in the Amazon and believed to be 1,100 years old. You’ll discover this verdant forest with a local naturalist uncovering the sources of the incredible sounds all around you.
Explore the islands by kayak, and reach Alter do Chao village to explore an authentic Native American handicrafts workshop. Swap to a paddleboard later and journey along the Tapajós until you find your own private beach with a delicious dinner waiting prepared by your crew.
SURVIVAL SKILLS & TUMBIRA
Follow the Amazon on to Manaus, where the river swells in breadth to over a mile wide and fragments into tributaries. From your yacht, your onboard guide will help you discover the wilderness on the banks as you cruise.
Reach the shore and immerse yourself in the jungle as you receive tips on how to survive in the Amazon from a team of ex-army officers. With your Pelorus guide, you’ll spend a day using your new skills, from building a fire to spearfishing. In the afternoon, construct hammocks with the option of an overnight stay.
For a pulse-racing adventure, explore the maze-like Anavilhanas archipelago on jet skis. Afterward, have an uplifting cultural immersion as you visit the Tumbira villagers and discover how their community transitioned from illegal logging to protectors of the forest.
Travel with them, by tender or canoe, to fish for piranhas along the Ariau channel. Spot rare Uakari monkeys and birdlife. When it’s time to head back to your yacht, look out for alligators basking on the riverbanks
