Wildlife Area
This secluded jungle archipelago, boasting upward of 400 islands, is the perfect place for you to appreciate the unique ecology of the Amazon. Lying upriver from Manaus on the Rio Negro, Arquipelago de Anavilhanas is a naturalist’s paradise, both biodiverse and beautiful. You can explore the 1,000 sq km (386 sq mi) labyrinth of dense forest, creeks, swamps, and beaches by boat or board a small plane for some spectacular aerial views. A local guide will help you keep your bearings, as well as identify the abundance of flora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, sloths, giant arapaima fish, black caimans, and the elusive manatee. Should you go swimming in the warm waters, you'll very likely be joined by schools of friendly pink dolphins.

  • Visit the Anavilhanas archipelago makes you feel small in front of grandeur of nature

  • Impossible not to be moved in front of so much beauty! Departing from Manaus car, crossing the Black River Bridge, towards the municipality of Novo Airão. From there you can combine with the Inn owners for walks in the nearby localities. Another option would be to buy packages with tourism agencies (are several that make this kind of ride). Meet Novo Airão-even facing the challenges of a bumpy road in several excerpts-is also a great option for an unforgettable weekend.

  • We did some boat trips across the Anavilhanas archipelago during our view on Amazon with Eco Adventures Travel. It was amazing to see how big is the region of the National Park, especially at the time of the flood and how the local guides are able to navigate without the help of electronic equipment (GPS, Compass), during the boat trips are very similar environments, lots of water and forest on all sides. We took boat rides at sunrise, during the day and walk at night. We have seen porpoise species 02, sloths, snakes and various species of birds. Super recommend the trip to Anavilhanas National Park.
