Add To Plan

Begin with a scenic riverboat cruise on the Rio Negro toward a small cluster of islands. At a convenient landing stage, you will switch to motorized canoes and cruise the narrow channels in the tropical forest, affording a closer look at this equatorial forest land. Cruise through Lake January and admire the giant water lilies, Victoria Regia, if the river's level permits. An English naturalist named them after Queen Victoria. These plants have huge leaves, measuring as much as six feet across. After returning to the landing, you will re-board your riverboat and proceed down river for an opportunity to view the Meeting of the Waters. This natural phenomenon occurs when the dark, clear waters of the Rio Negro and the muddy, yellow waters of the Solimões River flow side by side for several miles before merging. Where these two rivers meet is the official starting point of the Amazon.

Please note: There is no guarantee you will see the Water Lilies. Guests must be able to get on to and off the riverboat (by a gangplank) and to a motorized canoe, otherwise they may be asked to remain on the main river boat. Comfortable walking closed-toe shoes are recommended.
