Are you ready to visit the largest tropical forest on Earth? Visiting the Amazon is a trip of a lifetime!
The Amazon rain forest, covering much of northwestern Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries, is the world’s largest tropical rain forest, famed for its biodiversity. It accounts for more than half of the world’s remaining forests and 20 percent of the world’s oxygen—which means it’s massive and there’s a lot to explore.
This expedition journey endeavors to capture the spirit and essence of the Amazon in a relatively short amount of time. We mostly voyage on one of the most magnificent rivers in the Amazon basin, The Rio Negro. Over three and one half days we walk in the forest, explore in our launches, and visit local communities along the edges of this wild and largely uninhabited river.
Note: This trip is not ideal for everyone. If you have issues with any trip of wildlife and or creature this trip is not ideal for you. Nor anyone that deems themselves as a high maintenance traveler. Our accommodations will be standard river cruise accommodations. An additional signed liability waiver will be required as part of the trip requirements.
This trip is hosted by Sisters Traveling Solo LLC. Please note that you must be a member of our paid membership program or our Facebook group to join this trip. Membership will be verified after booking. Our trips are 21 years and up at the time of departure.
We also visit the homesteads of families who make and grow almost everything they need. For many travelers these visits with local
settlers, whose lives are so dramatically different from ours, are some of the most memorable experiences of the journey.
OFF BOAT EXCURSIONS
There are two to three excursions off the vessel every day. Early mornings we divide into small groups and glide along quiet channels in our launches or kayaks among giant rain forest trees draped with vines and orchids.
During our voyage we are treated to the ever-changing vistas of travel on the mighty Amazon River itself. Most travelers are astonished by the scale and grandeur of this majestic waterway that drains a continent.
We have obtained the services of the man who is said to be the best person to do take an amazon river cruise with. Every tour company uses him for their amazon cruises. Our crew will be in the best possible hands while exploring this amazing wonder.

Weather permitting, we will go for an excursion in the gnarled and dense flooded forest along the river’s edge. We may see some Squirrel Monkeys and we may hear the other-worldly growls of Howler Monkeys echoing through the primitive rain forest. The Amazon has one of the greatest collection of birds in the world and we are sure to see some of these brightly colored jewels perched in the treetops.
