Amazon Clipper Cruises is specialized in operating boat cruises on the Amazon River system departing from Manaus, using traditional Amazon riverboats with basic comfort such as double cabins with bunk beds, private toilet & shower facilities and at night time air-conditioning.
The meals are prepared on the boat from supplies taken aboard in Manaus and sometimes caught fresh on the way. Foodstuffs that need it are preserved in freezers or refrigerators. The water served on board is mineral water. The meals are generous and varied, basically consisting of local cuisine where fish plays a strong role and many times is caught on the way.
This ecological reserve is part of our itinerary and offers a unique opportunity for tourists to discover the diverse ecosystem of the Amazon.
Located on the Rio Negro, just forty-five minutes by boat from Manaus, the January Ecological Park unites several ecosystems of the region and has the advantage of being easily accessible by travellers. The nine thousand hectare area contains terra firme, varzea, and igapó forests, and is operated by a tour association composed of businesses from the sector with the permission of the Governor of the State. At the location, tourists can travel by canoe along the igapós, which are intersected by large and small trees with liana and vegetation typical of this ecosystem. At the Victoria Regia (Water-lily) lake, there is a rustic, yet secure, bridge that take the visitor to get to know this beautiful Amazonian flower.
