Enjoy three days of Amazon explorations and lodge activities. All meals will be served on property or while out adventuring.
Canoeing: Since canoeing is a quiet, peaceful activity, it frequently provides excellent opportunities to observe birds and monkeys along the river banks. Heading down river, in the direction the current is flowing, you will pass through different types of scenery. The tranquil waters of the River Cristalino are perfect for this activity and comfortable equipment is provided by the lodge.
Trail: Nature tours along the 19-mile trail system offer an in-depth understanding of the tropical ecosystem. The trails within Cristalino Reserve are of easy-to-moderate difficulty and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. They are not long, usually between 1-3 miles. The idea is to enjoy nature and learn about the forest, as the guides point out the birds, plants, monkeys and other features.
Canopy Towers: For a truly unique experience in the Amazon rainforest, a visit to the Canopy Towers cannot be missed. Soaring to 164 feet, with waystations at various heights, climbers can enjoy panoramic views of the reserve, with the vast forest canopy a blanket of green at your feet.
Flora & Fauna Observation: Several flagship species of Brazilian fauna and flora can be found in this region, including: harpy eagle, Brazilian tapir, giant otter, white-whiskered spider monkey, otter, white collared peccary, white-nosed-saki monkey, red-handed howler monkey, dusky-titi monkey, cryptic falcon, crimson-bellied parakeet, black-girdled barbet, paradise tanager, crested owl, spangled cotinga, pavonine quetzal, purple honeycreeper, curl-crested aracari, great potoo, attalea maripa, brazil-nut tree and mahogany. This area has been highlighted by the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment as vital for conservation.
Boat Trips: Many of the trails are only accessible by boat, and on the journey you will have the opportunity to observe wildlife along the rivers. One of the trips includes a sunset visit to the River Teles Pires. Here, the meeting of Teles Pires River with the waters of the River Cristalino creates a fascinating intermingling of respective light and dark shades.
