Day 1 | Transfer to Presidente Figueiredo – Check in

Tropical Tree Climbing - Atividades na Floresta

Tropical Tree Climbing – Atividades na Floresta

In the morning you will be taken by car to the headquarters of Amazon Emotions, 667 acres of natural forest within the environmental protection area of Maruaga Grotto, located in the municipality of Presidente Figueiredo. Approximately two hours drive with a small stop in town. Along the way, vegetation changes from deforested areas to a green virgin forest.

On the way to the lodge, discover some amazing local works of art, tapestries, books, bows and arrows, and other unique souvenirs at the Waimiri Atrorari indigenous shop located in the small town of Presidente Figueiredo. Leaving the city, we will visit one of the spectacular and refreshing waterfalls of the region. From the parking lot, the walk to the waterfall takes about 10 minutes. The landscape is beautiful, with mossy trees, bromeliads and orchids everywhere. This trail ends at a beautiful waterfall, over 10 feet high.

Accommodation: Jungle Lodge

Day 2 | Experience in the Amazon Rainforest

After breakfast, we leave for the garden in search of the edible herbs of the forest. The trail begins beside the main road, crossing areas where the forest is regenerating and there are large spaces of pristine forest. For this reason, this trail is ideal to show the processes of ecological succession and the importance of forest conservation for the Amazon region. In the garden, we consciously apply the principles of ecology to the design of home gardens that mimic the structure and function of the forest ecosystem for our food production systems. Learn how locals use the forest plants and fruits on this cultural tour.

In the afternoon, get ready for an exciting tree-climbing adventure! From our lodge, you will follow a 20-minute guided hike along a trail under the canopies of the thick Amazon rainforest. Our climb begins with an Angelim Tree, about 60 meters high, specially selected for your adventure. You will receive full instructions on climbing techniques and your guide will be on your side as you climb through the tree trunks.

Once on top of the tree, you will have a hammock waiting for you to rest, relax and observe the life of the Amazonian nature from a panoramic view. The hammock is secure, securely tied to the tree and your safety rope remains locked while you relax and enjoy the experience on the treetops.

The forest changes completely at dusk, the sounds and smells are intensified and other senses are awakened. In this experience, unlike others, our guests find beauty in the small details, the croaking of frogs or the buzz of insects. And if you turn off the flashlight, you may notice the glow of the fireflies in the forest or hear the bats flapping. Looking at the ground, under the right conditions, you may even see the glow of the bioluminescent fungi around you. When you turn on the lights again, you may see the reflection of hundreds of insect eyes around. When we descend from the tree, we continue our way to the lodge, and we can hear the call of cicadas, owls and other nocturnal birds. Without a doubt, this is an emotional experience irresistible to many! Enjoy your dinner at the jungle lodge, learn more about the family’s efforts to preserve the land and traditions of the local people.

Cachoeira – Tropical Tree Climbing – Presidente Figueiredo

Adventure yourself into the jungle with your guide for a great opportunity to spot different animals. You will have the day to explore the forest and learn survival skills in the jungle. Learn how to climb on palm trees without strings and (depending on the time of year) how to pick açaí and how to make a delicious exotic juice.

Contribute to science alongside the Amazon Jaguar Vision Project and help to set up cameras for wildlife photography. The cameras subtly register animals, especially mammals, which people rarely see elsewhere. As you help our naturalists to collect camera data, you will learn all about this exciting work. Finally, you will study the captured images and discover which rare and fascinating animals have been caught. This is a must-see experience! After all this learning, you will be our guest at a dinner with our jungle team!
