Silversea Luxury Cruises A MANAUS (Amazonas)

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Manaus, Brazil
Silversea Luxury Cruises - Manaus, Brazil

Lying in the heart of the Amazon, hundreds of miles upriver from the Atlantic, Manaus is a busy port city surrounded by the richest rainforest habitat on Earth. Placed strategically at the confluence of two rivers, the town was founded as a fortress by the Portuguese Navy, but quickly became a trade hub for the surrounding area. By the late 19th Century, Manaus was the centre of Brazil's booming rubber industry, and grew rapidly into one of the largest cities in Brazil. View more

During this period, many of Manaus' grandest buildings were constructed by the city's 'Rubber Barons', including the Public Market, and the Amazon Theatre, a vast decadent opera house. Today, Manaus is a cultural melting pot, with a diverse population. A complex system of free trade rules has turned Manaus into one of the wealthiest cities in the Brazil, with heavy industry developing alongside traditional livelihoods such as river fishing, and gathering the bounty of fruit, nuts and medicinal plants which the rainforest bestows. However, it is the surroundings which give Manaus its unique character. The famous Meeting of Waters, where tannin-rich water from the Rio Negro combines with milky water from the Rio Solimões to form the Amazon, can be seen just outside town, and the jungle beckons visitors to explore and discover. Excluding Manaus, the state of Amazonas is extremely sparsely populated, and in the largest rainforest on Earth, it is easy to forget the hustle and bustle of the city and simply enjoy the wonders of nature.

Amazon River - Meeting of the Waters

Venturing into the Amazon tributaries is an experience not to be missed, it will provide a close-up look of what the ecology of the Amazon is all about. Knowledgeable guides will provide information about trees, plants and birds you may encounter during this trip into nature.


River Cruise

Boarding your riverboat pier side, the cruise takes you across the Rio Negro toward a cluster of islands. At a convenient landing stage, you will switch to motorised canoes and cruise the narrow channels in the tropical forest, affording a closer look at this equatorial forest land.


Janauary Ecological Park

Enjoy a visit to one of the most visited Ecological parks in Brazil, known for its diverse variety of plants throughout its landscapes: dry forests, lowlands and flooded intertidal zones. Here, guests can enjoy a short canoe ride to Janauary Lake.


Meeting of the Waters

After returning to the landing, rejoin your riverboat and start cruising back to Manaus. En route, take in the 'Meeting of the Waters'. This natural phenomenon consists of the clear waters of the Rio Negro and the muddy yellow waters of the Solimões flowing side by side for several miles without merging. Later, the two rivers form the Amazon.

Discover the reptiles of the Amazon in the evening during this exciting alligator-spotting experience at the Janauary Ecological Park.


Janauary Ecological Park

Depart the pier via riverboat for the approximate one-hour ride across the dense jungle backwaters of the Rio Negro en route to the Janauary Ecological Park. Upon arrival at the park's jetty, disembark the riverboat, then embark a motorised canoe with a glide through the Rio Negro and its countless overgrown tributaries. The jungle becomes alive at night with the mysterious sounds and dark shadows of its nocturnal denizens.


Caiman spotting

Caimans are close relatives of the alligator that can be found in Central and South America. Like their crocodilian cousins, Caimans live near rivers and other bodies of water. Most caimans are around six or seven feet long, but the largest species, the black Caiman, can grow to a length of 15 feet. The young caiman are much smaller and easier to find.

While the Caiman is hypnotized by the bright light, your canoe will slowly approach it until your guide is close enough to attempt to catch it with his bare hands and actually lift it out of the water for all to see. After closer viewing, the young Caiman will be returned, unharmed, to the water.


After the thrill of this incredible hunt in the dark you will transfer back to the river boat for the return to Manaus.

Grand Amazon Tour

Take a 1.5 hour boat ride up Rio Negro and Rio Tarumã towards the Amazon's vast natural park crisscrossed by numerous unexplored streams called igarapés. After a welcome drink, an experienced local jungle guide will lead you on an easily paced 1.5 hour walk into the forest. A large number of indigenous animals inhabit this area, including several species of monkeys and exotic Amazon birds. While keeping your vision poised for a chance to spot these wild creatures, your guide will also explain the jungle ecosystem, point out varieties of medicinal plants and give you some pointers on jungle survival techniques.


Continue your tour with a visit to the Center for the Rehabilitation of Amazon Primates, also called Monkey Forest. Established in 1991, the Center's objective is to re-introduce animals kept in captivity, or that have been rescued from areas of Brazil that have been flooded or burned as a result of development. Follow the steps of the re-integration of primates to the wild, from the time they arrive at the Center to the moment they are ready to return.


Stop for lunch in the panoramic restaurant decorated in rustic Amazon style where you will enjoy a buffet lunch of regional specialties. Afterwards, take a leisurely canoe ride to visit a native's house transfering to a river boat taking you down the Rio Negro and back to the Ship.

Learn to survive in the wild while gaining a new insight in to the forest during this half-day jungle hike.


Guedes Lake

Board a regional riverboat and cruise the Rio Negro for approximately 45-minutes to reach Guedes Lake. Disembark at the local wooden pier and meet a local with vast experience in jungle survival, for a little talk about the rainforest and what, with luck, will be seen along the trail.


Jungle Trek

Follow your well-trained guide through the jungle trail for a close-up look of the wonderful surroundings. During the walk, there will be several stops in which the guide will explain survival techniques such as how to construct a shelter or find a climbing plant containing drinking water.


After the jungle trek, embark the boat for the return journey to the floating pier in Manaus.

Manaus History & Architecture

Begin by departing cross the 450-foot-long floating ramp that connects the dock to the street. This remarkable installation was designed by a Scottish engineer to cope with the annual rise and fall of the river which can be as much as 40 feet. Close by you see the large yellow Customs building, constructed with materials brought as ballast from Europe. You'll also see the Municipal Market whose wrought ironwork was been designed by Gustave Eiffel, imported from Europe. The Market is today under restoration and soon visitors will be able again to browse alongside the locals and purchase anything from medicinal herbs to arts and crafts.

Continue your panoramic drive passing by the Rio Negro Palace, the former home of a prosperous rubber baron, then on to Sao Sebastian Square. Here, a visit will be made to Manaus' magnificent Opera House, completed in 1896 during the great rubber boom following 17 years of construction. The wrought iron skeleton of the building was brought from Scotland and the stone from Italy. The Teatro Amazonas, as it is officially called, was rebuilt in 1929 and has undergone restoration in past years. Today, it can be seen once again in its original glory. Leaving the Opera House, explore the São Sebastian Square at your leisure and perhaps take photographs of the restored former houses of the prosperous rubber barons.

Following, your drive will continue through the city on your way to the residential and beach-front district of Ponta Negra with its extravagant mansions and lined with luxurious condominiums facing the Rio Negro and the Forest. On the return to the port, your drive will pass by the Vivaldo Lima Stadium. The city's project involved the demolition of the old stadium and a new and modern one built in its place, the Arena da Amazonia. Its exterior structure is designed to evoke the straw baskets that are made by the Indians in the region. In its architecture, several sustainability-friendly was incorporated such as on-site rainwater recycling system and sewage treatment facilities to reduce the water usage. It was designed to make use of natural ventilation to reduce its consumption of energy. It was also designed to minimize the temperatures inside the structure with features such as a while reflective exterior.

After 4 hours of history and architectural immersion, return to the ship.

Manaus' Golden Era

With the invention of the automobile in the late 19th century, the rubber boom began. As demand for rubber soared, small river towns like Manaus were transformed overnight into bustling centres of commerce. The city became the opulent heart of the rubber trade and extravagant mansions were erected.


The city's old-world mansions and monuments still exist but are now set among modern skyscrapers. The finest example of architecture from this period is the Teatro Amazonas (Opera House), which will be visited during this programme.


Rio Negro Palace

Departing the pier, your first stop will be an outside visit of the Rio Negro Palace. Built to be the residence of a rich rubber dealer, German Waldemar Scholtz, Black River Palace was inaugurated at the end of the 19th century and was well known at that time as Scholtz Small Palace. (Palacio Rio Negro is now holding location for the Secretary of Tourism of the state of Amazonia, therefore visitation is limited outside). Following a photo opportunity, your drive proceeds to Praça Heliodoro Balbi for an external view of the Palacete Provincial.


Palacete Provincial

Upon completion of the building works, to March 25, 1874, the then Provincial styled mansion has housed simultaneously several public offices: the Provincial Assembly, the Bureau of Public Works, the Public Library and Lyceum Provincial. The official inauguration only occurred on February 28, 1875, almost a year after the completion of the work. With the restoration, made in 2009, the Provincial Palace, known for over a hundred years as a Military Police Headquarters, resumed its original name, bringing in a space completely restored, Amazon and the history of great works of cultural value.


Manaus Opera House

From here, your drive heads to the Teatro Amazonas to visit the most impressive and decadent symbol of Manaus's Golden Era, the Opera House. Built at the height of the rubber boom at the turn of the 19th century, the Opera House took fifteen years to construct and epitomizes the splendor and elegance of a time when the city was one of the richest in the world.


Leaving the Opera House, you have free time at the square and the opportunity to take photos of the former houses of the prosperous rubber barons.


Mercado Municipal

Next, your drive proceeds to the Mercado Municipal. A brief visit will be made at the municipal market, which is housed inside a historic building from the early 1900s. The structure was modeled on the famous Les Halles in Paris. The wrought ironwork, said to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel, was imported from Europe. Stalls sell fruits and vegetables, fish, jungle herbs and Indian crafts.


From here, a short drive will take you back to the pier and your awaiting ship.

Scenic flight over Manaus and the Amazon

Departure from the Ship by minivan 30 minutes road to the Air club for a scenic flight in small single or twin-engine airplanes to explore Manaus and the Amazon by air. On this 1.5 hour flight you will see the downtown area including the Opera House, Manaus Port where the ship is docked, the Meeting of the Waters, the Amazon, Negro, Solimões and Tarumã Rivers.


The flight will also take you over jungle, lakes and the bridge over the Rio Negro and the old Tropical Hotel complex, Ponta Negra beach and the arena da Amazônia (Manaus soccer stadium).


Disembark the plane and board the van for your 30 minute bus ride back to the ship.

The Musa Museum & Botanical Garden

Leave the Ship by bus to visit the Musa-Museum of the Amazon founded in 2009, a living open-air museum in a segment of the Adolpho Ducke Forest Reserve, a forest in the city of Manaus. On this 3 hour walking tour you will visit the Botanical Garden created in 2002 whose tracks cut into the dense tissue of trees, palms and garden vines illuminated by lights and shadows that reveal the dazzling diversity of insects, birds and pollinators that live here.


The ecosystems, fauna and flora of the Ducke Reserve have been studied for more than 60 years by researchers from the National Institute of Amazonian Research (INPA), who have recorded all their findings in catalogs, articles and manuals available for you to read.


End your walk by climbing the 242 step tower in the Musa Botanical Gardens to observe the forest from above before heading back down through the forest to end your tour.


Drive 1 hour back to the ship.
