Deep in the heart of Brazil lies the greatest rainforest wilderness on earth: the legendary Brazilian Amazon. Here, chattering howler monkeys swing high in the canopy of vine-draped trees and small expedition vessels meander quietly through pristine waters. Along the Central Amazon Ecological Corridor, the largest of the Amazon reserves, you can spot pink river dolphins and a veritable kaleidoscope of colorful birds, while the Pantanal—South America’s primary wildlife sanctuary and a UNESCO World Heritage Site—is home to rare jaguars, caimans, capybaras, and giant anteaters. Beyond the magnificent wildlife, the Brazilian Amazon is a place of sublime experiences that echo a bygone era of intrepid exploration. Whether you’re paddling a canoe through the wetlands, taking a sunset hike, tucking in for the night aboard your river cruiser, or enjoying delicious regional cuisine from the comfort of a spectacular eco-lodge, you'll feel like a true adventurer!
