Expedition Cruise Line Celebrates End of Brazilian Visas with Revamped Tours
JAMESTOWN, RI – In celebration of the end of the visa requirement to Brazil, Amazon Nature Tours, a small ship expedition company that sails further into the Brazilian Amazon basin than any other line, has introduced new “Into the Wild” four-day sailings.
These sailings are an enhancement of their previous shorter cruises, going deeper into the Amazon basin and allowing guests a greater opportunity to explore the dense forests and small tributaries within the UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, The Central Amazon Conservation Complex.
Amazon Nature Tours is the only line to offer four- and six-day sailings in the Brazilian Amazon basin, exploring the least inhabited major river in the Amazon basin, the Rio Negro. While most lines sail the Peruvian Amazon or do day trips on the Brazil side, Amazon Nature Tours goes far into the Brazilian rain forest.
These true expedition cruises are led by trained naturalists and include kayak and launch excursions into the “flooded forests,” rainforest hikes, visits to native villages, fishing for piranhas, outings to the beach and more. Highlights of the four-day trip include:
- Deep wilderness exploration far from other travelers and human settlement
- The Anavilhanas Archipelago, a reserve that includes the world’s largest system of river islands and also areas of tall dense rainforest called the igapó, the black water flooded forest where dense forests grow right out of the dark water of the Rio Negro.
