Full description
After pickup from your hotel, you will be driven to the jungle to start a 2.5-hour trek through huge trees over 30 meters high. You will then reach the Jamaraquá community, located within the Tapajós National Forest. The community is part of a project to support sustainable forest management in the Amazon called the FLONA.  You will learn about how the riverside populations use natural resources in a sustainable way to grow food and make ecological leather to sell. You will also find out how the local community makes rubber.  The Jamaraquá community is one of the smallest in the Tapajós National Forest. This will be a unique opportunity to meet the locals and find out about their way of life in the jungle.  For lunch, you will enjoy a good homemade meal with Amazonian local food (fish or chicken). On your way back, you will do some more trekking, before paddling through the flooded areas of the rainforest in an indigenous canoe. You will also visit several beautiful beaches along the main river. After sunset, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Alter do Chão.
