Itinerary

Day 1 – Waterfall Visit 

At 9:00 a.m. you will be taken by car to the lodge located just outside the township of Presidente Figueiredo. During this two-hour drive journey, you will witness the vegetation change from colonized deforested areas to virgin rainforest. On your way to the lodge, you will also have the chance to see the beautiful local crafts, tapestries, books, jewelry and other one-of-a-kind souvenirs at Waimiri Atrorari’s indigenous store, located in the small town of Presidente Figueiredo.

Leaving the town, we will visit one of the refreshing waterfalls that this area is known for. The hike to the waterfall takes 10 minutes, and the landscape is beautiful – with moss-covered trees, bromeliads, and orchids everywhere. This trail ends with a spectacular waterfall. You’ll arrive at the lodge with a warm welcome and plenty of time to take in the view, calmly settle in and meet for an orientation snack with our team. A typical Amazonian dinner will also be served at the jungle lodge. Tucked in the world’s richest rainforest, our family owned and operated venture allows us to share the wonders of the Amazon with visitors while preserving the environment.

Meals included: Lunch & Dinner

Day 2 – Discover Edible Wild Plants / Canopy Tour

We will gather at the lodge before heading over to the Edible Forest Gardening Experience in the “Garden”. This trail starts at the side of the main road, across areas where the forest is regenerating and there are large patches of pristine forest. For this reason, this trail is ideal to show the ecological succession processes and the importance of forest conservation for the Amazon region. In the garden, we consciously apply the principles of ecology to the design of home-scale gardens that mimic forest ecosystem structure and function for our food production systems. Learn how the locals use the plants and fruits of the jungle on this cultural excursion. Experience local tradition, and learn about Amazon nature, history, and culture. Enjoy your lunch at the lodge.

Venture higher into the rainforest to explore the treetops on a canopy tour. Our tree climbing adventure begins with an Angelim Tree (Dinizia excelsa), soaring 200 feet above the forest floor, specially selected for your adventure. You’ll receive thorough instructions in tree climbing techniques, and your guide will be alongside you as you ascend into the canopy. Once high up in the tree, there will be a canvas hammock waiting for you to rest, relax and observe Amazon nature life from a bird’s eye view. The canvas hammock is safely and securely tied to the tree and your safety rope remains locked and secured, permitting you to relax and enjoy your experience in this marvelous treetop canopy.

The forest is transformed completely at dusk: sounds and smells are intensified and other senses are awakened. On a night experience, unlike a daytime ascent, our guests find the beauty in the small details, such as the croaking of frogs or the hum of insects. And if you turn off your flashlight you can observe the sparkle of fireflies in the woods, or hear the flutter of bats. When you turn on the lights again you can see the reflection of hundreds of tiny insect eyes all around.

As we come down from the tree and make our way back to the lodge you can hear the call of cicadas, owls and other night birds. Enjoy your evening dinner at our jungle lodge, learn more about the family’s efforts to preserve the land and the traditions of the local people.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 3 – Exploring the Rainforest Wilderness / Camping Experience

Today you’ll explore the rainforest by foot. At every turn, our guides reveal the secrets of the rainforest, helping spot creatures we would never see on our own given the amazing camouflage of so many masterfully adapted species. Where dry ground exists, step ashore for rainforest walks, keeping an eye out for a host of birds: large-billed terns, laughing falcons, gray tanagers, snowy egrets, horned screamers, tiger herons, short-tailed parrots, parakeets and perhaps the flashy scarlet macaw.

This private ecological reserve focuses on conservation, environmental education, and training in sustainable land use and resource production. Trails through primary rainforest reveal a wide variety of plants and animals in their natural habitat, including more than 150 different kinds of birds including a great diversity of hummingbirds, along with spider monkeys, howler monkeys, coati, brocket deer, tamandua anteaters, peccaries, and the elusive ocelot. A top attraction is the morpho butterfly, colored in vivid blue color with shiny wings that reflect the light, making them easy to spot amidst the jungle canopy. They are one of the largest butterflies in the world; their wingspan measures up to 20 centimeters.

After your walk, enjoy a soak in one of the fresh springs near the base camp, where a small stream of fresh water, known as igarapé, offers a natural massage. Enjoy a picnic lunch before further nature viewing. You have the afternoon to explore the jungle, focusing on surviving in the wilderness. As an optional activity, you will set up your own hammock on the campsite; this will be your home for the night. The jungle base camp provides basic accommodations within the native environment; open to the fresh air and natural forest sounds, allowing for an authentic rainforest camping experience. Learn to slow down and tune in your senses, becoming an active part of the local ecology. Beneath a starry sky, you’ll enjoy the evening’s open campfire and dinner, where guests congregate and chat over the day’s events.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 4 – Hands-On Cultural Immersion

Enjoy a delicious Amazonian breakfast before heading the rainforest. Through the senses, guests are taken on a journey through the Amazon where they can directly see, touch, hear, smell and taste things from the rainforest. The essence of this experience is structured around authentic museum quality indigenous objects. Through a hands-on approach, we incorporate real Amazon materials including indigenous baskets, musical instruments, bows & arrows, rainforest seeds, palm fiber handicraft, and more. By exploring the indigenous way of life with their relationship to their environment, we can learn how it is possible to be more resourceful and sustainable in our own lives. Our hope is to plant seeds of awareness that will help protect these endangered cultures and environments, as well as our own.

This experience covers not only the context of environmental education, but, it is also recommended for geography, music, and social studies. A real Amazon encounter!

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
