Day 1 - Welcome to Manaus, Brazil

On arrival in Manaus, you’ll be warmly greeted and escorted to the Tropical Hotel where our guests will enjoy a spacious and comfortable Junior Suite for the night. 

Day 2 - Embark the Motor Yacht Tucano

After a leisurely morning, you’ll step aboard the M/Y Tucano for your 4-night Amazon odyssey. With its unique open-air design and picture windows in your cabin, you’ll be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the jungle as we set sail up the Rio Negro. Late this afternoon finds your vessel navigating the vast Anavilhanas Archipelago, the largest collection of riverine islands on the planet. As conditions permit, join our expert naturalists to explore the dense forests – alive with squirrel monkeys, howler monkeys, brightly colored Amazon birds, and an astonishing variety of tropical plants. Return to ship for hors d’oeuvres on the Observation Deck and sit down to a congenial dinner in the dining room. Tonight, weather permitting, you might set out in the Tucano’s launches for a thrilling night safari to search for nocturnal creatures like the crocodilian caiman.  Meals B+D

Day 3 - Diverse Ecosystems of the Amazon

After breakfast onboard, you’ll step off ship this morning to explore the flora and fauna of the Igapó, a unique flooded ecosystem of dense forests rising from the dark, nutrient-rich waters of the Rio Negro. Later, a hike through a high Amazon forest reveals the flora and fauna of a very different, much drier environment. Back onboard, our expert naturalists are on-hand to answer questions and enrich your understanding and appreciation of the rainforest.  Meals B+L+D

Day 4 - Deeper into the Amazon

Today’s excursions explore farther reaches of the Rio Negro, as our vessel navigates into remote jungle areas rarely seen by others. As conditions permit, you’ll explore by launch and on guided forest walks. This evening, we plan to sail up a small east bank tributary for a night safari deep in the Amazon. With sharp eyes and ears, you’ll see and hear the forest’s rich variety of nocturnal species. Back onboard, you might enjoy a Caipirinha, the traditional Brazilian cocktail, or maybe even learn to samba. Meals B+L+D

Day 5 - The Meeting of the Waters

Arise early this morning for a guided excursion as the rainforest’s inhabitants awake to begin another day. It’s a lively time in the jungle and an ideal time to spot indigenous mammals and exotic birds. Return to the Tucano for a hearty breakfast and then rejoin our expert naturalists for another morning activity. Later this afternoon, you’ll want to be on deck as our vessel navigates along the Encontra das Aguas, where the brown waters of the Amazon and the darker waters of the Rio Negro flow side-by-side for miles without mixing. Pink and grey river dolphins can often be observed cavorting along this stark line of contrasting currents. As the sun sets and the jungle begins to darken, we’ll return upstream and begin our journey back toward Manaus. This evening’s farewell dinner is an opportunity to share reflections on this unforgettable adventure.  Meals B+L+D

Day 6 - Tour Manaus + Fly to Iguassu

After a final breakfast onboard, bid farewell to our staff and crew as you disembark the Tucano in Manaus. Enjoy a guided tour of this vibrant river port – including the ornate Manaus Opera House; also known as the Amazon Theater, this iconic landmark was built more than a century ago by wealthy rubber barons. Then transfer to the airport for your included flight to Iguassu. On arrival, you’ll be escorted to the 5-star Belmond Das Cataratas, the only hotel located inside Brazil’s Iguassu National Park. Meals B

Day 7 - Majesty of Iguassu Falls… From the Argentine Side #WHS#

Extensive full-day exploration with our expert naturalists takes you to all the best vantage points on the Argentine side of Iguassu Falls. At the famed Devil’s Throat Cataract, the towering spray often acts like a prism – creating thousands of rainbows suspended in the air. This evening, you can continue to take advantage of our hotel’s privileged location to explore the National Park after it’s been closed to other visitors!  Meals B

Day 8 - The Brazilian Side of Iguassu + Departure

Enjoy breakfast and a leisurely morning here at our 5-star hotel within the National Park. Then join our guide for a tour of the breathtaking vantage points on the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. Along with yesterday’s guided touring, our comprehensive approach promises a complete and more enriching experience of this amazing World Heritage Site. After sightseeing, you’ll be escorted to the airport for your onward journey.  Meals B
