Brazil Holidays: Amazon + River Cruises + Meeting of the Waters + Manaus

Brazil holidays & Amazon river cruises offer the opportunity to explore the fascinating flora, fauna and colourful birdlife of one of Brazil’s most iconic regions - the Amazon Basin, the largest tropical rainforest in the world. With over half the Amazon rainforest located in Brazil, Manaus is the main gateway - although the Amazon also stretches across seven other South American countries.
 
You can explore this remote wilderness either on land or by riverboat. Manaus itself makes an interesting half-day tour, as it was once an important centre in the production of rubber. During the boom years an opera house was built to keep the European workers entertained and concerts are still performed today, although not very frequently. Near Manaus you can see the fascinating phenomenon of the Meeting of the Waters, where the waters of the Rio Negro, coloured black by natural tannins, merge with the pale sandy-coloured Amazon River. There really is a distinct line between the rivers.
 
The Amazon Basin is literally miles from anywhere and a minimum stay of 3 to 4 nights is necessary to make Brazil holidays & Amazon river cruises really worthwhile. It’s a fascinating experience with over 10% of the world’s known species found in these rainforests, including pink river dolphins & fierce piranha fish.
 
Combine your ideas with our expertise and let us help you create a holiday of a lifetime. We offer a wide range of options at different price points, all of which can be tailor made to your needs.

More information on Brazil holidays & Amazon river cruises to see the 'Meeting of the Waters' in Manaus:
 
Lodges are dotted along the riverbanks, but to see wildlife on Brazil holidays & Amazon river cruises it’s better to head deeper into the virgin rainforests, away from the working river. You need a keen guide in order to spot wildlife, as the vegetation in the Amazon is dense, and make sure you take binoculars. Freshwater pink river dolphins are a highlight here. You should also spot plenty of caiman and piranha, and the birding is outstanding.
 
Another way of experiencing this amazing ecosystem on Brazil holidays is on an Amazon river cruise. Whether for a few days or up to a week, you can explore the smaller tributaries and creeks at a leisurely pace by riverboat, and also see the unusual 'Meeting of the Waters' near Manaus.
