The Amazon River, the largest in the world, has a lot of surprises in store for visiters. From Belem to Tabatinga, passengers aboard ships can laze around and admire the jungle landscape.
During their journey, people will make fascinating encounters: young Amazon boatmen who hope to glean a few coins by selling a variety of goods, air taxi pilots, or fishermen who live in huts on the water. There’s Marajo, an island where water buffalo can be found everywhere, and the city of Manaus, called the Paris of the Tropics.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
