Days 1 — 3

Gateway to the Amazon

The city of Manaus sits on the confluence of the Rio Negro and Amazon River, surrounded on all sides by rainforest. Once a colonial fort, thanks to the rubber boom in the late 1800s it became the richest city in South America, drawing wealthy families from Europe who brought their art, architecture and culture with them, the grandest example being the ornate Amazon Theatre opera house. A guide will introduce you to the city, its architecture and cuisine, including an obligatory caipirinha or two.

Days 3 — 7

Immersed in the Rainforest

Take a light aircraft upriver, getting some appreciation for the Amazon’s immensity, before hopping aboard a boat to your eco-lodge inside the Mamiraua Reserve, Brazil’s largest protected area. Floating on a lagoon, Uakari is a simple but comfortable place that is all about exploring the surroundings.

Days 11 — 14

Chill in Trancoso

Bounded by thick jungle on three sides and the Atlantic on the fourth, Trancoso was an isolated fishing village for centuries before its 'discovery’ by hippies and artists in the 1970s. Since then, it has remained quietly cool, becoming a little chicer while retaining its eco credentials with its beautiful reef-sheltered beach and colourful quadrado old town remaining blissfully untouched by big developers.
