Englische Beschreibung:

Day 1: An early morning departure from Manaus, in the company of a naturalist guide, will lead adventurers past small settlements and evolving primary rainforest, on a scenic two-hour drive to the Tropical Tree Climbing Guest House. Having met the team and been welcomed into the lodge with drinks, orientation and snacks, the afternoon is spent enjoying a full throttle introduction to the forest, with a beautiful walking trail and first exciting tree climbing expedition. Learn from the experts as participants are guided through the best techniques and easiest ways to scale these giants, followed by a safety briefing and equipment check, before starting the adventure. The spectacular reward for all tree climbing efforts comes in the form of a spectacular treetop hammock; perfect for taking in unrivalled views of the forest canopy. Gazing across the Amazon from the comfort (and tethered safety) of a hammock, at such a height, is a truly special and privileged sight, not easily forgotten.

As the sun begins to set, the early evening transformation of the forest is just as enjoyable, as colorful birds and endless views are replaced with bioluminescent fungi, fireflies and all manner of nocturnal creatures. Absorbing the nighttime ambience of the Amazon offers an entirely different perspective on this natural wonderland, all before gradually making the walk back to the lodge for a delicious, home-cooked meal.

Note: Each night, after dinner, guests have the opportunity for further explorations or question and answer sessions with expert local guides.

Day two: The first full day at the lodge begins with an informative trip to the nearby Edible Garden, a place which aims to simultaneously highlight the importance of reforestation and conservation, while also examining and explaining the potential food sources to be found in the Amazon. Here, as well as gaining a greater understanding of the particular threats facing this area of jungle, guests will see first-hand the efforts being made to encourage local communities to be responsible for their own, small-scale food production, making use of the plentiful supply of fruit and unexpected edible treats which can be found in the area.

This afternoon and evening promise to be yet another unforgettable adventure, with a survival skills course and overnight camp under the stars. Set up your own shelter and hammocked camp before learning essential, life-saving skills such as sourcing water, making a fire and protecting your food from would-be scavengers. Hopefully, these intrepid survival skills will not be put to the test for real just yet, and brave participants can enjoy a relaxing evening listening to the sounds of the rainforest, and surrounding streams until morning.

Days three and four: A full immersion into the rainforest continues throughout the next two days, as time is spent honing essential skills and perfecting abilities which can be used in many extreme situations, under the supervision of highly trained experts. From eating tasty bugs to making a fire from scratch, fishing by hand, sourcing water vines and even hunting with a bow and arrow, gradually becoming one with the forest is all but guaranteed.

In addition to these fun and - at times - life-saving techniques, an action-packed 48 hours in the wilderness will also include learning how to climb a palm tree without ropes, retrieve fruit from its lofty heights and even make juice from it, before finally heading back to the main guesthouse for some well-deserved comforts and a delicious meal.

Day five: After all of the adventure, a peaceful walk through the forest to a nearby hidden waterfall is perfectly in order. Spend the morning wandering through naturally sown orchids, bromeliads and tropical trees, before arriving at the waterfall for a refreshing dip in its picture-perfect plunge pool.

From here, a relaxed afternoon can then be spent either enjoying more wildlife walks, treetop vistas or visiting the nearby village of Presidente Figueiredo, where the Waimiri Atrorari indigenous store showcases numerous artworks, tapestries, literature and even traditional bow and arrows from the local region. Finally, dinner is served back at the lodge before one last night amidst the sounds of the jungle.

Day six: As the tour draws to a close, there is time for one final, freshly prepared breakfast of forest fruits and coffee, before being taken back to Manaus for your onward trip.

Here we will harvest fresh vegetables and fruits to cook at the camp site. With the help from some of the local people, you will learn to cook their traditional dishes, which they eat in their everyday lives. More commonly known here as cassava - the manioc is a building block of Brazilian food, which makes up about 80% of the indigenous diet, and is grown in over 200 different varieties. Clearings are made by fire to prepare the plant sites for the manioc, that will be ready for harvest within months. We watch as fresh root is dug up and how the pulp then get squeezed in narrow sleeves. The liquid will be reduced over fire to become tucupi - the base for stocks and soups - or to be mixed with ants. The starch will become tapioca. The flour, farinha, will be used as a staple, and for chibe´ - a fermented drink. This is a versatile food for half a billion people, though largely unknown in the west. The manioc pulp is toasted in a giant shallow pan over a mud-walled fire, being constantly stirred with a long paddle. The starch pops and forms a crust. We eat it as beiju - a sophisticated flatbread with a delicious gummy crunch. The rest of the extended family will stay here for the next day until the fields are dug, the flour, tucupi and tapioca made. Each family brings food to a communal meal according to their means. We share densely flavored soups spiked with cubiu (wild tomato), tucupi and chillies. We will eat fish smoked over an open fire.

Amazon weather can be unpredictable and whilst we chase for clear skies sometimes there are simply none on a given day. It is therefore, important to have realistic expectations of what your tour guides can achieve. To reduce the risk of cancellation we only offer this activity from July to September.

Jungle Survival

Day 1: An early morning departure from Manaus, in the company of a naturalist guide, will lead adventurers past small settlements and evolving primary rainforest, on a scenic two-hour drive to the Tropical Tree Climbing Guest House. Having met the team and been welcomed into the lodge with drinks, orientation and snacks, the afternoon is spent enjoying a full throttle introduction to the forest, with a beautiful walking trail and first exciting tree climbing expedition. Learn from the experts as participants are guided through the best techniques and easiest ways to scale these giants, followed by a safety briefing and equipment check, before starting the adventure. The spectacular reward for all tree climbing efforts comes in the form of a spectacular treetop hammock; perfect for taking in unrivalled views of the forest canopy. Gazing across the Amazon from the comfort (and tethered safety) of a hammock, at such a height, is a truly special and privileged sight, not easily forgotten.

As the sun begins to set, the early evening transformation of the forest is just as enjoyable, as colorful birds and endless views are replaced with bioluminescent fungi, fireflies and all manner of nocturnal creatures. Absorbing the nighttime ambience of the Amazon offers an entirely different perspective on this natural wonderland, all before gradually making the walk back to the lodge for a delicious, home-cooked meal.

Note: Each night, after dinner, guests have the opportunity for further explorations or question and answer sessions with expert local guides.

Day two: The first full day at the lodge begins with an informative trip to the nearby Edible Garden, a place which aims to simultaneously highlight the importance of reforestation and conservation, while also examining and explaining the potential food sources to be found in the Amazon. Here, as well as gaining a greater understanding of the particular threats facing this area of jungle, guests will see first-hand the efforts being made to encourage local communities to be responsible for their own, small-scale food production, making use of the plentiful supply of fruit and unexpected edible treats which can be found in the area.

This afternoon and evening promise to be yet another unforgettable adventure, with a survival skills course and overnight camp under the stars. Set up your own shelter and hammocked camp before learning essential, life-saving skills such as sourcing water, making a fire and protecting your food from would-be scavengers. Hopefully, these intrepid survival skills will not be put to the test for real just yet, and brave participants can enjoy a relaxing evening listening to the sounds of the rainforest, and surrounding streams until morning.

Days three and four: A full immersion into the rainforest continues throughout the next two days, as time is spent honing essential skills and perfecting abilities which can be used in many extreme situations, under the supervision of highly trained experts. From eating tasty bugs to making a fire from scratch, fishing by hand, sourcing water vines and even hunting with a bow and arrow, gradually becoming one with the forest is all but guaranteed.

In addition to these fun and - at times - life-saving techniques, an action-packed 48 hours in the wilderness will also include learning how to climb a palm tree without ropes, retrieve fruit from its lofty heights and even make juice from it, before finally heading back to the main guesthouse for some well-deserved comforts and a delicious meal.

Day five: After all of the adventure, a peaceful walk through the forest to a nearby hidden waterfall is perfectly in order. Spend the morning wandering through naturally sown orchids, bromeliads and tropical trees, before arriving at the waterfall for a refreshing dip in its picture-perfect plunge pool.

From here, a relaxed afternoon can then be spent either enjoying more wildlife walks, treetop vistas or visiting the nearby village of Presidente Figueiredo, where the Waimiri Atrorari indigenous store showcases numerous artworks, tapestries, literature and even traditional bow and arrows from the local region. Finally, dinner is served back at the lodge before one last night amidst the sounds of the jungle.

Day six: As the tour draws to a close, there is time for one final, freshly prepared breakfast of forest fruits and coffee, before being taken back to Manaus for your onward trip.
