This arquipelago offers one day after another of exciting experiences. I stayed at the Anavilhanas Lodge (separate review) from where I experienced a sunrise over the Amazon River, seeing pink dolphins and a Coboclos community, piraña fishing... Simply incredible.

We explored the Anivilhanas Archipelago while staying at the Anivilahanas Jungle lodge. It is stunning. It is quiet and serene with many different types of birds, grey and pink dolphins and caymans. We explored the many channels and lakes on canoes and also went to the white sand beaches, which are only accessible and visible during the dry season! Highly... More

This was a great trip, staying at the wonderful Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge. Lots of great activities. the only thing missing was the wild life, which was largely absent because of the exceptionally high water levels.

Paradise that you must visit in this life. Wonderful beaches with white sand, picnic in beautiful places, invigorating bath river at sunset in the company of botos, a kind of amazonic dolphin. I went there with Turismo Consciente agency. They are great, specialized in Amazon. I learned that they organized a trip to Anavilhanas to the New Year's Eve 2014/2015... More

We stayed for 3 nights / 4 days in the lodge. Family of 5. It was a wonderful experience: - service is excellent. - food is very good. Try the local flavors: piracucu, tapioca, cupuaçu, açaí. - activities are dynamic, views are breathtaking.

Spectacular scenery! Taking boats into the tangles of trees is a breath taking experience. The water is so still that you can see the reflection of the forest overhead. The trees are tall, so don't expect to get a great view of wildlife. Insects and birds are the best viewing. Mammals not so much. If you like sea food be... More

We visited in March, took the canoes into the small river and walked thru the jungle, we travelled 1000 miles up the Amazon which here is 27mts higher than the Atlantic. This is where the Amazon & Rio Negro meet (meeting of the waters) a real adventure

We went to Novo Airao and hired a guide Mr Ceara to take us on a 3 hours ride on the Anavilhanas, it was quite expensive R$200.00 but we agreed on that, as the city is far away from everything and cost of living is high, we counted the experience of this guide too, he apparently is one of the...
