Begin discovering the highlights of the Amazon’s largest city with a visit to the Municipal Market to browse the stalls which offer regional products. Pass the Government Palace and view the nearby creek to see typical houses built on stilts. Continue to the Floating Dock to observe life on the river before discovering the splendour of the recently restored Amazon Opera House.
This guided motorised canoe tour departs from Manaus and offers the chance to witness one of the Amazon’s most fascinating natural wonders. The ‘Meeting of the Waters’ is a remarkable confluence of contrasts where the light-coloured waters of the Solimões River meet the dark waters of the Rio Negro, flowing parallel for several miles without mixing and creating a unique natural spectacle.
