Brazilian Amazon Aboard a Classical Schooner
The M/V Desafio is a classical schooner that offers guests old world charm and a comfortable, intimate atmosphere on Brazil's mighty Amazon.
She has recently undergone a major re-furbishment, and her cabins have been enlarged and facilities updated so your stay will be even more comfortable!
With only 12 cabins, the boat is small enough to explore remote areas and for passengers to get to know their fellow travelers; but still spacious enough to provide comfort and casual elegance.
Cruises begin in and end in Manaus, exploring the Anavilhanas Islands, the majestic Rio Negro and the legendary Amazon River, by canoe and on foot, along the way. Guests enjoy all-inclusive home-made regional and international cuisine, daily expeditions by motorized boats, and experienced bilingual guides who will happily share their knowledge of the area and its biology. There are also visits to local river communities to learn about their unique culture and lifestyle.
The four-day Maguarí itinerary departs most Thursdays; and the Desafio is available for charter at other times.
Please note that a pre-arranged visa is required by holders of US, Canadian and Australian passports, in order to enter Brazil. Contact us for more details.
