The experience of being in a different world, surrounded by stimulus must be lived in a level higher than photos and digital memories kept in our cameras. There is a universe of new understanding about the forest reality to explore, through the lecture, argumentations, feelings and innumerable experiences lived in loco. From theatrical to the kinesthesia, we have in each expedition the mission of build the bridge between two distant worlds: the urban-contemporaneous and lost forest world. Taking our guests from one side to another of this way with safety, comfortable, leisure, good sense of humor and a lot of information. Interacting among friends with traditional culture population. Showing none of the animals of the Forest has us as a prey. Immerging in the Negro River, refreshing in its water beaches, blessed, black and at same time crystalline, inviting for a bath. Showing one Amazon very different of the Box view divulged by TV. Buying this package you will acquire more than a trip, an experience of the life for the life to keep in the memory.
The Wild is not the only attraction in our tours; so are the people who live in it. In their genuine cultural expressions, based on the fruits bore by the forest, we can find beauty and simplicity without equal. There is a lot to learn from this exchange with them, and it is in this exchange that friendship bonds are formed and spontaneous moments arise, whether on a football match, during a conversation or in many other activities.
Low Impact Tourism
To know and get the spirit of the true Amazon Rainforest, you got to go by boat. When you disembark in an isolated community, in a sanctuary of parrots and macaws, in a desert beach with gull nests, turtle eggs, or get in a canoe in a creek, you must keep your impact to a minimum. For that reason, Katerre operates only with small groups in boats with low fossil pollutant emission, low noise level, and organic trash disposal. With exclusive itineraries, many of the places we visit receive only our clients.
Your Wellbeing First
Remote river expeditions require experience and know-how to make sure nothing goes wrong. Our guides are trained in first-aid and able to use anesthetics and suturing. Check out our pharmacy. The boat is fumigated prior to every expedition, and it can be equipped with satellite phone for emergencies. Not to mention the familiarity we have with the places, communities, and people we visit. This is Katerre!
Exclusive itineraries for Western Amazon sanctuaries.
Navigating on the black water rivers of the Negro River basin, we cross landscapes of pristine beauty, uncanny wildlife attractions, and genuine cultural manifestations of the northern Brazilian people. The Anavilhanas Archipelago, Jaú National Park, Mariuá - the world's largest river archipelago; the rivers that cross the Serra do Araçá hill range, where sits Brazil's tallest waterfall; São Gabriel da Cachoeira, the most native-pure of Brazil's towns, and all the splendor of the island and Forest over the rocks and boulders of the upper Negro River, with its native and mixed communities, genuine expressions of the local culture. Katerre: for when you're in the Amazon, the river is the way to go.
