Known as the “Brazilian Caribbean”, Alter do Chão gives the feeling of a true Amazonian paradise! And what is best than seeing it from the eyes of local villagers and indigenous communities while contributing to their tourism initiatives. As a complete and enriching experience, this 4-day itinerary takes you along the Tapajós and Arapiuns Rivers aboard a comfortable boat with private cabins and full board. Navigating calmly so you can enjoy the scenery and the ride, we come to little-visited places that still hold amazing stories and secrets. Get ready to experience the region’s natural beauty as well as the history, geography, people and projects that make this region so enchanting. We hope that at the end of the trip, you will carry the energy of the Amazon in your suitcase and become, just like us, a great fan of this place!


Why is this trip at GoLocal?

Throughout this itinerary, small riverside communities that have tourism as an alternative source of income will provide the visitor with an immersion in their way of life.



Day 1 – Boarding and Welcome Dinner

Reception at Santarém Airport and transfer to Alter do Chão, which takes approximately 40 minutes. Board on our yacht-style boat in which we will navigate the region in comfort and safety during the coming days.

Our boat will be anchored at the Alter port during this day. Take a stroll around the village and enjoy the sunset from the upper deck – a sight on its own!

Dinner will be on board and for those who want to enjoy the evening of the village we will leave a boarding boat available. Overnight on board when we will start of navigation.

Meals: Dinner


Day 2 – Tapajós National Forest: Trekking and Canoeing

We wake up already in the Tapajós National Forest, an important conservation area with

more than 500,000 hectares, composed of a rich diversity of landscapes with rivers, fields, lakes, forest and river beaches.

After breakfast, we will start the day by trekking a beautiful trail through the native forest with a local resident who will introduce us to species of trees and plants from the Amazon rainforest. After, we will go for a canoe trip through the crystal clear streams.

Back on the boat, it’s time to enjoy the snacks, juices and caipirinhas with

Amazonian flavors as  we sail upstream to the Munduruku Indigenous Territory going deeper into the wildness. Sharpen your senses at dusk… The smells and sounds of the woods take over the scenario while the colors of the forest change at every minute. Spend the night on board.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner


Day 3 – Mundukuru Indigenous Territory

Today is dedicated to an experience with the Munduruku, indigenous people who live in the Tapajós River valley since the late eighteenth century and are famous for their warrior tradition. Through stories, an archery workshop, body painting and traditional rituals, the Mundukuru will teach us about the life of contemporary indigenous peoples and their role as guardians of the forest. In the afternoon, our journey continues to a “tip of sand”, as they call the beaches of the region. We’ll have a special farewell dinner: a piracaia, traditional fish cooked on the fire at beach in a very special setting. 

Overnight on board.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner


Day 4 – Amazon River Ecosystem

We will dawn at the Jari Channel, the region’s bird dormitory and a narrow arm of the Amazon River. This water channel is ideal for the early observation of some animals such as alligators, iguanas and parrots, while navigating through igapós and flooded forests.

After touring the region in small canoes, we return to the boat for our trip back to Alter do Chão. We will arrive at around 12:00 pm for airport transfer or optional extension at the Hotel in the village. See you soon!
