The Mamirauá ecotourism programme offers a series of activities, including excursions with local guides in the forest’s channels, lakes and trails, and visits to the local riverine villages to experience the Amazonian way of life.

Responsible Tourism

The Mamiraua Reserve was the first Brazilian conservation unit to give local people a major share of responsibility for the management of its natural resources. Thanks to the conservation efforts which began in 1983, Mamirauá has become a wildlife refuge.
