Add To Plan

Trace the history of the Amazonian rubber boom by visiting a rubber museum in the heart of the jungle, followed by a tour of a lavish opera house built by rubber barons in 1896.

Boarding a regional speedboat at the pier, you will soon find yourself cruising up the inky waters of the Rio Negro, taking in the spectacular Amazonian scenery. After approximately ninety minutes, you will reach a museum devoted entirely to natural rubber, a product gathered and processed in the surrounding jungle that brought immense wealth to the area.

The Rubber Museum accurately depicts a 19th-century rubber plantation, from the opulent estate house to the rubber tappers’ lowly shacks. During the tour, you will follow a trail into the jungle to see how the trees were tapped and then how the collected latex was processed in a smoke house. The conditions were harsh, the work punishing, and the resulting wealth for the rubber barons was beyond the imagination.

Next, re-board your boat for a ride to an Indian village located on the left bank of the Rio Negro. The indigenous tribe is a mix of the ethnicities Dessanos, Tucano, Tuyuca, Uanano and Tatuya. They are traditional people of the Amazon and remnants of its indigenous culture. Upon arrival, you will be escorted to the main hut where you will be treated to an exhibition of a traditional celebration ritual. Afterwards, you will return by boat to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of moderate to strenuous walking/standing. The trail at the rubber museum travels over uneven and natural surfaces. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; insect repellant; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
