Juma Amazon Lodge

Paket 5 dagar/4 nätter

Juma Amazon Lodge ligger 100 km sydöst om staden Manaus i ett orört område av regnskogen. Detta är en av de lodger som håller högst kvalitet på guider, bungalows och mat och vi rekommenderar den varmt till alla som vill få en professionell upplevelse av Amazonas.

Program Dag 1

07:30 – Departure from Manaus (with pick up either at airport or Manaus hotel). En route to the lodge we will visit the Meeting of the Waters, where the muddy waters of the Solimões River meet the black waters of the Negro River. At this crucial junction point, the two rivers – with  different  speeds,  temperatures  and  consistencies  – run  side by side for several  kilometers  without actually mixing, ultimately joining to form the great Amazon River. Passengers will feel the difference in temperature between the two distinct rivers.

11:00 – Arrival at Juma Amazon Lodge and greeting & reception with welcome drink.


12:00 – Lunch.


15:00 – Canoeing

Our canoeing tour provides an in depth / up close exploration of the igarapés (Amazonian creeks) and the igapós (flooded forest), an experience made possible only by paddle canoes. During the excursion, guests are encouraged to swim and may encounter some of the river’s most majestic creatures: pink dolphins.

19:00 – Dinner


20:00 – Cayman spotting

We depart on an evening expedition to observe frogs, birds and most importantly, caymans. Our guide uses his flashlight to help spot caymans. With this light, we can see the cayman’s eyes, which reflects a bright red dot, as the animal remains paralyzed and clearly visible. The guide is then able to bring the cayman aboard for participants to see. Afterwards, the cayman is returned to the river, unharmed.

Program Dag 2
05:00 – Sunrise

An unforgettable experience. Early in the morning we leave for a sunrise excursion where participants will observe  the acute and mesmerizing  change  in the sky’s color and the sounds  of the waking  birds. Our guides are equipped with binoculars in order to complement this experience with ample bird watching

07:00 – Breakfast

08:30 – Jungle hike

In this educational  jungle walk, our expert guide will introduce you to the wildlife of the Amazon. He will show  you  plants  and  describe  their  uses,  as many  are  edible  or medicinal.  The  paths  implemented  in exploration walks are constantly changed to avoid damaging the forest with overuse.

12:00 – Lunch

15:00 – Piranha fishing

You and your guide will board a motorboat to fish and learn more about the infamous piranha as well as other Amazonian fishes. Fishing is easier in the dry season as the fish cannot hide in the flooded areas as they tend to do in the wet season. You will return to the lodge during sunset and will have the chance to see some of the most stunning views the Amazon has to offer. Included in all packages (except the Jaçanã package).

19:00 – Dinner

20:00 – Lecture

Enjoy the insight of one of our highly trained and skilled local guides as he gives an informal lecture on everyday life in the Amazon, local tales and legends, and the overall culture of the region.


Program Dag 3
07:00 – Breakfast

09:00 – Jungle hike with picnic in the jungle

After hiking, we will stop in a captivating area of the forest to eat lunch (regional cuisine baked over a fire) and subsequently rest in hammocks, as the natives do.

15:00 – Visit to local community residents

An Amazonian native will share his knowledge regarding traditional medicinal plants and will demonstrate, among other things, how manioc flour, one of the region’s principal exports and drivers of the economy, is prepared.

19:00 – Dinner


Program Dag 4
07:00 – Breakfast.

08:30 – We will visit a giant Sumaúma tree, approximately 100 years of age. The Sumaúma tree is recognized as the Amazon’s largest tree species in both height and diameter, reaching up to 40 meters (130 ft). 

12:00 - Lunch


16:00 We’ll take a tour around the lodge. This tour allows guests to experience Juma, built completely upon stilts, from a unique perspective: underneath. This fascinating approach provides insight regarding the construction of Juma and the role of sustainability within the lodge. 


19:00 - Dinner


20:00 - We will embark upon a jungle night walk, the time of day in which animals make the most sounds and the light of the forest is minimal, thus making the experience much more authentic and mysterious. The night walk provides a wholly unique experience from any of the lodge’s day trips.


Program Dag 5
07:00 – Breakfast.

08:30 – Return to Manaus with a stop at the Pirarucu Floating Dock.

The Pirarucu (Arapaima Gigas), known as the “giant” of freshwater fish, is a species that can grow to over 3 meters in length and weigh in at up to 200 kg.  On our return from Juma, passengers will stop  at  the  Pirarucu  Floating  Dock  and  have  the  chance  to  feed  these  giant  fish  and  observe  their impressive strength.

12:00 Arrive in Manaus:  guests may be dropped off at the airport or at any Manaus hotel.



Information Juma Amazon Lodge
Juma  features  21  intimate  bungalows  seamlessly  nestled  into  the  lush  surroundings  of  the  Amazon Rainforest. In order to accommodate the water levels of the wet season (often rising up to 15 meters, or 49 feet), the property was built on stilts upon solid ground resting at treetop level.


The lodge is entirely eco- friendly in design and construction. All materials used in its construction are native and found abundantly in the region, carefully extracted from the surrounding area. Both the construction and the architectural style of the lodge reflect the techniques employed by Amazon River natives when building their own homes.


Juma Lodge is rustic yet beautiful,  offering guests an optimized blend of authenticity  and comfort. The lodge’s footprint is minimalist, yet elegant in concept. Eight of our bungalows offer views of the surrounding forest, 12 are riverfront and one is panoramic. All bungalows have private bathrooms with hot water solar systems, porches with hammocks and ceiling fans ideal for the Amazonian night, which tends to be far cooler than Manaus.


Forest  View Bungalows
Bungalows  overlooking the forest are located between the lobby patio and the restaurant.   Their location allows  for  easy  access  for  the  elderly  or  anyone  with  any  locomotive  difficulty.  Because  the  forest bungalows are closer to one another, they make for an excellent choice for families with small children.


River View Bungalows
Located in a more secluded and exclusive area of the lodge, our river view bungalows are nestled into the canopy of the trees, reaching 15 meters (49 ft) above the ground during dry season. Ensuring the utmost level of privacy, the river view bungalows were designed to be fully integrated into the forest.


Panoramic Bungalow
The panoramic  bungalow  is our biggest  bungalow!  Located  in the treetops,  with 32 square meters (344 square feet) in size, it is equipped with a king-size bed and features a round panoramic balcony with two hammocks and a complete and stunning view of the Juma River.


The restaurant, specializing in both local and international cuisine, offers its guests an exceptional view of the Juma River.  Served buffet style, the menu is constantly changing and offers a great variety of flavors.


Juma’s  lobby is home  to the lodge’s  bar,  where  guests  can entertain  themselves  with  board  and table games, books pertaining to the Amazon, painting materials and a professional telescope designed for moon and star observation.


Hammock House
The  hammock  house  is widely  used  by guests  to  rest  and  reflect  after  meals  or  after  a  day  of  jungle exploration.


Juma features two decks: a floating one, ideal for swimming in the river and sunbathing, and another one built on stilts located directly in front of the lobby and showcasing excellent views of the river.


River Pool
Juma's river pool was thought to be as authentic as possible, allowing full interaction with the river. Around it, it is possible to sunbathe and enjoy a small bar.


We opened a museum to offer our guests more content and information about the Amazon Rainforest: its fauna, flora, customs, legends, among others.


"Tapiri" is an indigenous name for a hut. Although inside our property, it is located 10 minutes away from the hotel itself, serving as a base for tours, lunches and even overnight stays in the forest.



With an unmatched location in one of the most pristine and untouched areas of the Amazon Rainforest, Juma Amazon Lodge develops its activities in accordance with the principles of sustainability, implementing actions aimed to achieve ecological, sociocultural and economic sustainability. We believe that the least we can do is to help maintain  and protect  our greatest  asset:  the forest itself!  The lodge has implemented various measures to minimize environmental hazards, such as:

•   Photovoltaic Solar Energy
•   Solar Water Heating
•   Sewage Treatment
•   Recycling and Waste Management Center
•   Staff from the Community
•   Educational Lectures
•   Act of Solidarity (donation of books, clothes and toys)
•   Participation in Charity Auctions

•   Sustainable  Hotel of the Year 2014



What to Bring

T-shirts, long sleeved shirt, sneakers or hiking boots, jeans or track suit, hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, binoculars, flashlight, camera and film.
Sweatshirt or sweater recommended from June to September.

The exact distribution of the tours will be confirmed upon arrival to the lodge.
