The Anavilhanas is an amazing natural wonder - a network of islands that are 'flooded forests' every year in the wet season, before becoming actual islands in the dry season. The Rio Negro is many kilometres wide in this section and when we went (early August), there were still wide waterways between patches of forests although I was told that... More

We based ourselves in the town of Novo Airao for a few days, and took a day trip out into the Archipelago with Antonio, who we met at the port. To see the river stretch over the horizon, between the dozens of islands on either side, is truly a unique sight. We visited the small community of Santo Antonio, where... More

Incredible and comfortable in the forests of Amazon. Unimaginable adventure with comfort in the laps of nature and the wild. Excellent management.

I spent 4 days in a ship that went around rio negro. So this was included. I'm not sure how it would be for anyone staying at manaus ou in a ecoresort thats further away. But i can assure that if manageble, its a well worthy experience

We were privileged to spend to spend 4 days in the magnificent park. It is not that difficult to get to yet certainly off the beaten path. The Jungle Lodge we stayed at is right at the edge of the park and therefore most of our activities were within it. It is beautiful (and relatively bug free!), with many things... More

A network of 400 islands make up the archipelago in the Rio Negro, which at that point is 22km wide. Many are 'floating forest' islands and at the height of the rainy season will be totally submerged underwater. The views are stunning and the wide variety of animals we saw - including sloths, pink dolphins, grey dolphins, piranhas, tarantulas, tree... More

If you enjoy nature and outdoor activities, this place in the Amazon is paradise. My son and I spent four incredible days here at Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge (check the complete review).

My husband and I recently stayed in Anavilhanas Jungel Lodge by the archipelago, so most of the excursions were to the National Park of Anavilhanas.Definitely an incredible experience!

I went on 4 nights amazon cruise which passed through Arquipelago de Anavilhanas and into anavilhanas national park. Overall, I am disappointed. The Amazon forest which we can see from cruise or hike doesn't look dense and wild as expected. I do not see much wild life as well. River cruise companies skip activities like meeting native communities (telling some... More
