Travelers love to navigate the difficult trails that wind through the densely forested Amazon Jungle. But those looking for a slightly easier way to experience the Brazilian Amazon can hop aboard an all-day river cruise through the forest on the Rio Negro.
Travelers can float along the quiet river aboard motorized canoes, passing the famous Victoria regia water plants as they go, and see the Meeting of the Waters, a place where the Negro meets the Amazon River. Take in the panoramic views of Manaus on this long stretch of river and perhaps stop off at the January Ecological Park, where you can hop off the boat only 45 minutes from Manaus to see several Amazon ecosystems brought together in one place.
At 1,386 miles long, the Rio Negro is one of the largest rivers in the world, meaning a cruise along the waterway in the Amazon Rain Forest is sure to delight and provide plenty to see along the way.
