Anavilhanas National Park
The largest protected area in the Amazon Basin, Anavilhanas National Park encompasses a huge river archipelago in the Rio Negro in the state of Amazonas, Brazil. An area of 350,000 hectares with a perimeter of 380 km has been put forward by the Brazilian government as a tentative World Heritage Site since 1998.
Is the second-largest fluvial archipelago in the world, with more than 400 islands, and hosts great biodiversity and distinct ecosystems that stand out amongst the already rare habitat of the Amazon Rainforest. Protected species include margay, jaguar, giant anteater, giant armadillo, giant otter, Amazonian manatee, and Amazon river dolphin.
Due to the Amazon seasons, you can see two totally different scenarios. The water level can vary between 8 and 12 m and offer different activities, based on the season. During high tide, from October to March, the islands and most of the vegetation are flooded, creating the igapós and you can go through the forest and treetops by boat. In the dry season, from April to September, river beaches of different sizes are formed, creating a show apart and good places to walk and sunbathe.
Surrounded by splendid decoration and under the baton of chef Debora Shornik, you will taste dishes with the most exotic yet harmonious mix of regional flavors with contemporary western cuisine. Prepare yourself for the gastronomic sensations that CamuCamu Restaurant will provide you - beyond the privileged view of Negro River.
A beautiful area, with a dense jungle, beautiful birds and animals, and biodiversity that is remarkable. It was a once-in-a-lifetime visit to this extraordinary place. During your stay, you will enjoy activities such as:
Board in speedboats, as the speedboats that travel on the river, are called, for a ride in the Anavilhanas National Park. Depending on the season, the scenario is completely different! Guests can enjoy the beautiful beaches of white sand and dark waters in the dry season or the magic of the igapós, in the high season, when the forest is flooded and the trail is made between the treetops.
Of the beauties of the Amazon, the colors of the sky reflected in the Rio Negro are certainly one of the highlights that make this destination special. It is difficult to describe the shades of pink, lilac, green, and blue that mix with the dark and deep green of the forest, touching the mirror of the black waters of the river. The sunset contemplation tour is done in speedboats to the best spot between the islands to enjoy the silence, feel the peace and immerse yourself in the colors of the Amazon!
Nocturnal Animal Focus
Traveling to the Amazon is understanding that nature is the protagonist of the adventure! To observe wild animals, we have to be silent and follow the instinct of the guides who know the region and its secrets. When we find an alligator on the edge of the river or we are lucky enough to see a sloth in the trees, that's when we understand the grandeur of the forest. In this activity, as soon as night falls, guests are taken by experienced guides for a ride in speedboats in the Anavilhanas National Park in search of nocturnal animals.
