Accessible Amazon Adventures


Our wheelchair accessible Brazil adventure visits that part of the world where "life is the jungle and the jungle is life"

However distant and unimaginable you thought it would be to visit the Amazon rain forest.

Accessible wheelchair visits into the largest wilderness on earth.

This wheelchair accessible adventure has been carefully designed for the naturalist, the eco-tourist, the photographer, and the wheelchair traveler who wants an accessible, experienced, off-the-beaten-track tour program.

Home to the largest variety of undiscovered animal species on earth and reservoir of one fifth of the planet's fresh water, the abundant lush foliage of the rain forest is home on a grand dimension to reptiles, exotic mammals and tribes of native inhabitants who survive in harmony with their environment. However, modern industrialization threatens the balance between man and nature creating an Amazon ecosystem under siege.

Our program examines the beauty and the importance of the rain forest by frequently venturing into the jungle by motorized boat to study our immediate environment in greater detail. Our naturalist guide helps us learn more about the delicate interaction between man, animal, and plant life as we explore the smaller "igarapes" (seasonal tributaries) and "igapos" (flooded woodlands), and spend time visiting local Indians.

On our many day trips on the water we enjoy bird watching and fishing for the feared piranha. After dark we return to the river where we capture (and release) South American alligators.


The Guanavenas Inn

Known by eco-tourists around the world as the paradise inside the jungle, the Guanavenas Inn has all the facilities of a first class hotel, but with one difference...it is completely inside the jungle. There are 33 triple bedrooms and 12 private bungalows with air-conditioning, refrigerators, electric hot showers, private bathrooms and verandahs. The swimming pool, game rooms, volley ball court, bird nursery, hatchery, animal zoo, and restaurant are all easily accessed by all guests.
