Ecoboat Cruise 4 nights

Brasil: Amazon Ecoboat 4 nights

Brasil's mythical Amazon can only be described in superlatives. 

Covering an area of more than 5 million square kilometers, the Amazon acrosses nine countries (Brazil, Venezuela, Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Suriname, Guiana and French Guiana) with 80% of it located in Brazilian territory. The volume of this river (20% of all fresh water in the world) and the great variety of flora and fauna are probably the most impressive experience the visitors have in this region. 

Travel onboard a unique homeboat with a dedicated crew beginning in Manaus, at the junction of Solimões, Negro and Amazon rivers. Amazon EcoBoat is an extraordinary nautical experience, where elegance and comfort bring intimacy in total respect of the ecosystem. The boat is an eco-responsible cruise with solar energy, selective sorting and organized waste disposal and biodegradable products.
