Follow the routes of the conquistadors along the world's longest river into the heart of the world's largest rainforest, spanning nine countries and containing the world's greatest biodiversity. This continent-sized river is so wide at all points that not a single bridge has been thrown across it, and it pours more fresh water into the ocean than the next seven largest rivers combined. At almost 3 million square miles, its basin alone could swallow the whole of the UK more than 30 times over.

  • Manaus

    Manaus is a Brazilian city of about 2.5 million, located on the Rio Negro a few miles before it meets the Rio Solimões to form the Amazon River properly. The two rivers flow side by side for many miles, different in color. This phenomenon called "Meeting of the Waters" is one of the main tourist attractions of Manaus. Legend has it that they never mix and this may be due to the differences in density, temperature and speed of the two rivers.

  • Santarem

    Santarém is located on the southern bank of the Tapajós River (a tributary of the Amazon), in northern Brazil. It's the second-largest city in Pará, and located midway between Manaus and Belém.
