    Often referred to as the ‘lungs of the earth’, the Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest on Earth, and the Amazon River is the the world’s mightiest. Covering almost half of Brazil’s landmass and extending into eight other South American countries, the Amazon is a rewarding destination for anyone looking for an experiential trip that will linger long in the memory.

    The Amazon exists on a scale that is difficult to comprehend. The biodiversity of the rainforest is mind-boggling: there are more species of plant in just one hectare of the Amazon than in all of Europe, and the jungle is home to around a quarter of all the planet’s living species.

    The sheer scale of the Amazon rainforest can be both awe-inspiring and intimidating to the visitor. When planning a trip here it makes sense to concentrate on one region. The Brazilian portion alone is mind-blowing in scale, but many of the jungle’s most compelling attractions are within the reach of travelers who want to experience the world’s largest tropical forest without abandoning their creature comforts.

    And if you’re imagining hacking your way through impenetrable forest, machete swinging wildly, it might be time to think again.

    While the Brazilian Amazon offers great scope for rugged jungle adventures, a trip here needn’t be an endurance test of your wilderness survival skills. Today’s visitor can also find high-end jungle lodges offering impeccable cuisine, while luxury yachts provide a floating base to explore the jungle in style.

    The Amazon offers almost limitless opportunities for accessible, even luxurious, adventures, and trips can be tailor made to suit individual travel tastes. Always surprising, never dull, the Brazilian Amazon is a destination that goes well beyond the ordinary and into the realms of outright fantasy.
