Kayaking the Amazon in Style -  The story of Tofino Expeditions' award-winning Amazon kayaking tour

Concentration of Species

Kayaks offer unrivaled access to the small tributaries and the mysteries of the flood forest in the famed Amazon, and their silent progress makes for outstanding wildlife viewing and encounters that are missed by passengers who travel in motorized craft. Each day you’ll explore a new and fascinating aspect of this extraordinary ecosystem, which has the highest concentration of flora and fauna species in the world.

The Floating Forest

The Floating Forest

You’ll paddle through sections of forest that are actually floating, slip across mirror calm lakes to look for pink Amazon river dolphins, and scan the jungle for flocks of brilliant macaws as well as over 12 species of primates. You’ll be led by a team of naturalist and aboriginal guides that can identify the plants and creatures you’ll encounter and describe in detail the fascinating relationships that make up the ongoing drama of life in the Amazon rainforest.
Three Luxury Ecolodges

Three Luxury Ecolodges

At the end of each day’s Amazon kayaking adventure, you’ll return by motorized dugout canoe to the comforts of one of the three deluxe jungle ecolodges that make up the accommodations on this trip. There will be time to take a hot shower, enjoy a cold drink, and discuss the day’s highlights before sitting down to a dinner featuring local ingredients in an international cuisine.
Birding and Expert Interpretation

Birding and Expert Interpretation

Along with kayaking, you’ll have an opportunity to explore the entire forest, from the floor to the jungle canopy, all with expert interpretation. You will also engage in world-class birding that is guaranteed to bolster the life list of even the most avid birder.
Small Group Wildlife Adventure

Small Group Wildlife Adventure

A visit to the Amazon rainforest is a life-changing experience and small group size is the key to the success of this wildlife adventure. Just 10 guests will be fortunate enough to participate in a very special kayak exploration of the sea of green that is the Amazon.


"Thank you for the amazing Amazon kayaking trip! Weaving through the narrow natural channels and meandering down the rivers surrounded by jungle was quite an adventure. The native guides brought a new dimension to the experience with the critters they could see in the jungle and the stories they told of plants and their culture. And the sounds!... exotic birds, insects, and howler monkeys. This was our third kayak trip with Tofino Expeditions, and they have all been amazing adventures. Next year, we will kayak Venice."
