Meeting of the Waters - Janauari Lake

An outstanding river cruise through the Negro river with a visit to the incredible meeting of the waters, where the black water meets the yellow one from the Solimões river.
They roll side by side for about 4 miles without mixing.
After the meeting, the boat will take you to Janauari lake where you will be able to see the giant lily-pads and some monkeys. Still, in the lake, a local restaurant will offer you a very tasty freshwater fish for lunch.

After lunch, the boat continues the trip by navigating through flooded forests (note the season of the year). This incredible waterways created by nature provides an unforgettable experience to see the reflection of the trees canopies in the waters as well as a perfect mirror. (That view depends on the level of the river)
Besides all this, you will have a dozen different perspectives from the boat by observing the natives houses, both on stilts and on floating trees.

After the boat trip, you will visit the 'Opera house, the 'Market' and old 'Houses'
