The most important part of your Amazon Rainforest experience will be the quality of your personal guide. Amazonia Expeditions has the highest credentialed and most professional staff in the Amazon, and regularly updates their knowledge with special training seminars.

There are many facilities, offered by no other tour operators, to give you unique experiences in exploring the rainforest. One example is the canopy zipline system. Many companies have canopy walkways or towers, but with Amazonia can you actually fly from tree to tree, with nothing underfoot except a hundred feet of rainforest.

All guests of Amazonia Expedition’s award winning lodge are allowed unlimited canopy access (weather permitting) at no extra charge.
