Well taken care off by staff, but owner should lower the price
Jan 2021
I booked this full day tour at the last minute. Because tourism is almost non-existent, some tours weren’t running. Given the price of $150 I had v high expectations that fell flat. Our main guide, the indigenous guide and driver were knowledgeable and pleasant. The landscape is beautiful and we did see some interesting wildlife. The jungle trek - about 45 mins - was educational for flora and the fascinating ways indigenous people use these plants. The included lunch, hosted by the delightful family of our indigenous guide was delicious.

With a tour dependent on Mother Nature some things are beyond anyone’s control. The highlight happened near the end when the guides expertly detected a monkey colony which we stopped to feed with mangoes that had been procured at lunch. For bird watchers, the tour offers a lot. We were unable to to make it across the Rio Negro to the archipelago due to high winds and threatening skies.

I think the tour could easily be accomplished in 1/2 day. There’s a certain amount of monotony of sitting on a hard seat on a boat for hours on end spotting the occasional wildlife. I kept asking myself, “why does this tour cost so much?” Heck, I would have been struck by a small gesture like a pad for the boat seat or a branded face mask. And all I could conclude was it was due to the cost of having 3 people at our disposal for a full day. So when I think about what we saw, I don’t think we needed a full day. I think lowering the price to something like $100 and cutting a hour or two out of the tour would make this more competitive.

Not Much to See
Nov 2019
One of the largest inland archipelagos, there really isn't much to see here. On a cruise up the Rio Negro, it simply appears as if you were cruising between two river banks. You can't really get the sense of the archipelago from the ground. Nonetheless, it is a beautiful area to sail through.

Natural wonder

A chance to see unspoilt Amazon landscape, from the Rio Negro, to the flooded forest with its teaming wildlife to the islands and lakes within the river itself.

Nature at it's finest
Nov 2017 • Couples
Stunningly beautiful, a river archipelago full of islands that disappear if the river floods. Wildlife and flora explode from the banks of the Rio Negro as they, quite literally, jump and fall into your boat.

A REAL NATURE SHELTER AND A FESTIVAL OF WILDLIFE
Jan 2018 • Friends
When you visit Anavilhanas, you really feel the Amazon Reality. Flooded forests and green corridors like the furos, the floating homes, the animals and the meeting with indigenous tribes and natives. Going there is a real lesson of life, I am proud to visit all over Brazil, and Anavilhanas is one of the best places.

Just do it!

To quote my teenage son: “This place is dope. They really nail it!”
If you’re looking for a plush, beautiful, safe, fun and easy place to see the Amazon from, look no further.
We did the five night, six day package. Ever day was varied, relaxed and delightful. The food was plentiful and delicious. This was our last stop after a month in Brazil, and probably everyone’s favorite. The lodge picks you up from Manaus and from there it’s an easy three hour van ride.
Each day has two or three different activities, and in between you get plenty of chill time, which is nice, because it’s really enjoyable to hang by the pool or on the floating dock, or in the indoor/outdoor lobby. The beds and couches are really comfortable.
We were extremely pleasantly surprised to find out that due to the acidity of the Rio Negro mosquitos don’t thrive here, and it’s no more buggy than any other part of Brazil. Our guide Krishna claims there is no malaria, Zika or dengue right here. We still took our malaria pills and sprayed on the insects repellent, but really, mosquitoes were not a problem at all.
Also - you can swim in the river! Who knew? Apparently piranhas and caimans don’t attack people, (although they will bite your finger off if you stick it in their mouths...)
The guides are local guys who are super knowledgeable and good at spotting wildlife. They need it. It’s really hard to see animals through the dense vegetation. Most of the time you will see animals and birds at a distance, such as macaws flying overhead, dolphins jumping in the river, or sloths way overhead in the canopy. We saw plenty of large, toxic spiders close up though. That’s ok, it’s still an amazing experience. The area is beautiful and views change all the time with the shifting light. It’s pricey but totally worth every penny.

So much to do here - swimming in the rio negro, fishing for piranahs, looking for wildlife (we saw sloths and toucans) - and snakes and lots of incredible bird life too.
