Itinerary Details

Day 1: Amazon Arapiuns River Waterfall Tour

Stop At: Alter do Chao, Alter do Chao, State of Para
First day

We will leave Alter do Chao northbound, passing by the Piranhas Lake; with our first photoshoot at Ponta do Cururu beach. We will start our adventure by crossing the Tapajos River, passing through the Vila Franca community and entering the Arapiuns River.

On the Arapiuns River, our stop will be the rough diamond discovered by Selvagem Tours: the community of Urucurea, which briefly, is a wonderful cove, which is subdivided into three arms of water, providing a unique view and thus showing the potential the newest tourist destination in the region. We can highlight the picturesque church, which is outside the community, built on top of a hill. We will visit the property of Mr. José and family, which will show the talent of the native women in handcrafted pieces made with mastery and a lot of talent. One of the entertainment options is that we can witness (***) the preparation and making of handicrafts (a true cultural show), in which those who participate receive valuable knowledge about the arts and history of the Arapiuns River. Now a Wild surprise! They have a monkey, toucan and other animals on their property that can be photographed in close-up.

You now need to make an important decision! If you want to visit the community itself and see different artisan items, learn more about people’s experiences and learn more about the history of the place, you can choose what kind of emotion you want to feel along the way. Are you ready?

Arapiuns River Arua waterfall The first option for those who want to enjoy nature, is to visit the community on a (****) very interesting trail, due to the fact that it continues bordering the cove, counting two and a half kilometers back and forth (easy, quiet, which can be performed in sneakers or even sandals), which takes around an hour and a half. On the way, we can take a brief break for a refreshing dip, some bold photos and continue. In addition, of course, we will be able to see birds, monkeys of various species, lizards and much more. A pretty wild experience, huh?

For customers who prefer less movement and more observation, we offer the (*****) Tour of the community in a little wooden boat or canoe, quietly exploring the three arms of water, overlooking an original flour house and the like church at the top of the hill.

Another way is to take the (******) Tour of the beaches around the community, also in the wooden boat or canoe, visiting beautiful beaches, untouched and ideal for an invigorating bath.

After enjoying so much life, so many emotions and so much learning, it is time to go back there with your José, it’s time for lunch! You will taste the Amazon, in a (*******) native lunch, prepared by the magical hands of Mrs. Neuzinha, with fresh fish, wild chicken and sometimes several meats, not to mention the fantastic setting where lunch is served. In addition to filling the stomach, it is also filling the eyes! After that, just lying and packing on that hammock, enjoying the breeze and understanding the value of life…

We will continue along the rocky banks of the Arapiuns River to our favorite stop, the fascinating Ponta do Toronó dunes and Grande Lake. It is difficult to describe exactly what you will find, but frankly, it is at least sensational to see how nature builds havens. Life immediately becomes meaningful when you witness places like this…

We will walk along long sand dunes, which divide the Arapiuns River into a large lake, with the possibility of seeing birds flying over our heads and maybe even porpoises showing their fins. Yes, life is beautiful. Our idea is to present you with your first night resting in paradise. Feel free to choose how you want to enjoy it, be it in one of our cozy cabins on the vessel or even camping on the beach and making use of this Wild opportunity, with safety and tranquility.
