Guided by a skilled professional who qualified at the military CIGS (Centre for Intensive Guerrilla War in Rainforest), this adventure takes you on a walk with a difference... Boarding a regional riverboat, you will cruise for approximately 45 minutes upstream on the Rio Negro to reach Guedes Lake. Here you disembark at the local wooden pier, and after a talk about the rainforest you starts your jungle trail. Your well-trained guide will now lead you through the jungle for a close-up look at the wonderful surroundings. During your walk, there will be several stops where the guide will explain survival techniques such as how to construct a shelter or find a climbing plant containing drinking water. Following our jungle trek, you will reboard your boat for the return journey to the floating pier in Manaus.
Notes: This is a strenuous tour with a substantial amount of walking involved (approximately 1.5 hour), and around 45 wooden steps to climb, therefore participating passengers should be in good health. We recommend wearing light trousers, a long-sleeved shirt, comfortable walking shoes or boots. Binoculars may add to your enjoyment and a camera will capture those magic moments. Due to the unpredictable nature of wildlife, we are unable to guarantee sightings of any creature, although with luck you may see monkeys and exotic birds. The trek is more an opportunity to learn about jungle survival. Depending on the number of participants, speedboats rather than riverboats may be used in the transfer to and from the start of the jungle trail. Complimentary bottled water and regional fruits are supplied. PRICE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE
