Approximately 4 hours
Leave Manaus by regional riverboat, crossing the Rio Negro and heading into the jungle.
Your Native guide and bilingual interpreter will tell you about life in the wild -- how to obtain water and make fire, growing crops and hunting animals, how to get your bearings and how to hike easily in the jungle. You will learn about building shelters and traps, and some basic rules of jungle survival.
Minimum age is 12 years. Tour involves some effort during (dis)embarkation of the motorized canoes and during the 2½ hours in the jungle. The water level in the Amazon basin fluctuates seasonally. Occasionally, some tours that involve these waterways may be rescheduled or modified at very short notice. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed. The trek is more an opportunity to learn about jungle survival. Depending on the number of participants, speedboats rather than riverboats may be used in the transfer to and from the start of the jungle trail. Pregnant women or guests with a heart condition or back problem are not allowed to participate.
