Embark on a journey with the Ice Axe team to one of the world’s most intriguing and unexplored regions, the Brazilian Amazon.
Home to nearly one-third of all species on the planet, the lush Amazon Basin is a treasure chest of wildlife and awe-inspiring landscapes. Start your mornings with guided meditations and an energizing yoga practice before heading out to explore the Rio Negro via stand up paddle board or dugout canoe. Return home from your day of discovery to an air-conditioned suite aboard a well-anointed riverboat with fresh fish, fruits, delicious meals, followed by an ancient Himalayan breathwork/meditative practice to send you off to a blissful sleep before the next adventure filled day.
Starting from Manaus, Brazil, this expedition is spent exploring the culture, wildlife, flora and fauna of the Rio Negro. We’ll explore the hidden beauty of the surrounding jungle, streams, lakes and beaches via wooden canoe, SUP, and hiking, fishing for Peacock Bass and Piranha along the journey. In Novo Airao, we will have the chance to swim with pink dolphins before visiting the Desano Tribe to witness a native ceremony.
