How We Explore

The mighty Amazon River is the most forceful on the planet and the second longest as well. A vast region of forest is fed by this river and its extraordinary system of tributaries, as the snows drain off the Andes and flow towards the ocean.  In this forest, a world apart exists- primordial, lush, diverse beyond understanding.  Its environments, wildlife,  peoples and its endless secrets have lured visitors and human inhabitants for millennia, and travelers of today still seek out the secrets and extraordinary bounty of the Amazon by river, and from lodges nestled deep within the rainforest.
