THE AMAZON FOREST HAS ABOUT 5 500 000 km², GOING ALONG 9 DIFFERNT COUNTRIES. HAVING NOT ONLY HUGE AREA BUT THE HIGHEST BIODIVERSITY IN THE PLANET, IT IS THE HOME OF 2.5 MILLIONS OF SPECIES OF INSECTS, MORE THAN 40 000 SPECIES OF PLANTS, 3 000 OF FISHES, 1 900 OF BIRDS, 427 MAMMALS, 428 AMPHIBIANS, 378 REPTILES AND 242 123 NATIVE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE.

ALTOUGH THE WHOLE ENVIRONMENT ITSELF IS COMPLETELY CONNECTED AND WORKS AS A WHOLE, 4 DISTINCT LAYERS CAN BE DEFINED: WATER / GROUND / TREES AND SKY. EACH HAS ITS OWN PARTICULARITIES AND DIALOGES WITH THE OTHER LAYERS, NATURE AND HUMANS.

TAKING THIS IDEA AS THE STARTING POINT, THIS PROJECT CREATES A ITINERARY IN THIS SUCH IMMENSE REGION, PASSING THROUGH DIFFERENT SCENES, IN A WAY TO GET THE MOST OF THIS AMAZON EXPERIENCE CAN PROPORTIONATE. NOT ONLY FOCUSED ON TOURISM BUT ALSO CONCERNING THE CULTURAL HERITAGE AND NATURAL RESOURCES, THE PROJECT INTEGRATES TURISTIC FACILITIES AS WELL AS RESARCHING AND SUPPORT OF THE LOCALS.

FOUR DISTINCT LOCATIONS WERE CAREFULLY CHOSEN ACCORDING TO THEIR NATURAL FEATURES, WHICH WOULD BE BETTER FOR EACH PURPOUSE. BOAT BEING THE MAIN WAY OF TRANSPORTATION AND HAVING THE STARTING POINT IN MANAUS, THE WHOLE ITINERARY GOES ALONG THE AMAZON RIVER IN ALMOST 850KM LONG. ACCOMODATION AND BASIC SERVICES ARE PROVIDED FOR THIS JORNEY THAT CAN TAKE DAYS TO BE CONCLUDED.
