From Manaus to Anavilhanas via the special “Meeting of the Waters”

Manaus is the biggest town in Amazonia, from here you can choose to go on a cruise up the Amazon river on its opaline waters to find the mythical pink dolphins. Or, you can go up the River Negro and discover the Anavilhanas, the largest freshwater archipelago in the world.

Here the dark waters of the river cut the jungle into dozens of small islands covered in luxuriant vegetation. This vast group of river islands is home to many different living things including the indigenous people, the Ribeirinhos. A mixed raced population who live as one with all the Flora and Fauna around them. Coming back towards the regional capital of Manaus, you will experience a strange and fascinating phenomenon. At the confluence where the River Negro meets the Amazon river, you can follow the magnificent patterns drawn on the surface of the water by the two rivers, running side by side but never mixing.

Another important place to visit in this unparalleled ecological basin is January Park, famous for its giant water lilies, (Victoria Regia), which open at night and let off a sweet perfume. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the greatest forest ecosystem in the world.

Back on dry land, we also suggest discovering all the ancient splendor of Manaus and its main monuments and museums, such as the Amazonas theatre built during the prosperous rubber era.
