Stop At: Alter do Chao, Alter do Chao, State of Para
We will leave Alter do Chao heading north, passing by the Piranhas Lake with our first photoshoot in Ponta do Cururu. We will start our adventure by crossing the Tapajos River, passing through the Vila Franca community and entering the Arapiuns River.
On the Arapiuns River, our stop will be the rough diamond discovered by Selvagem Tours: the community of Urucurea, which concisely, is a wonderful cove, which is subdivided into three arms of water, providing a unique view and thus showing the potential of the newest tourist destination in the region. We can highlight the picturesque church, which is outside the community, built on top of a hill. We will visit the property of Mr. José and family, which will show the talent of the native women in handcrafted pieces made with mastery and a lot of talent. One of the entertainment options is that we can witness (***) the preparation and making of handicrafts (a true cultural show), in which those who participate receive valuable knowledge about the arts and history of the Arapiuns River. Now a Wild surprise! They have a monkey, toucan and other animals on their property that can be photographed in close-up, that is, very close!
You now need to make an important decision! If you want to visit the community itself and see different artisan items, learn more about people’s experiences and learn more about the history of the place, you can choose what kind of emotion you want to feel along the way. Are you ready?
The first option for those who want to enjoy nature in a hug is to visit the community on a (****) very interesting trail, due to the fact that it continues bordering the cove, counting two and a half kilometers back and forth (easy, quiet, which can be performed in sneakers or even sandals). On the way, we can take a brief break for a refreshing swim, some bold photos and give continuity. Moreover, of course, we will be able to see birds, monkeys of various species, lizards and much more. A pretty wild experience, huh?
For customers who prefer less movement and more observation, we offer the (*****) Tour of the community in a wooden boat or canoe, quietly exploring the three arms of water, overlooking an original flour house and the unique church at the top of the hill.
We can also take the (******) Tour of the beaches around the community in a little wooden boat or canoe, visiting beautiful beaches, untouched and ideal for an invigorating dip.
After enjoying so much life, so many emotions and so much learning, it is time to go back there with your host Mr. José, it’s time for lunch! You will taste the Amazon, in a (*******) native lunch, prepared by the magical hands of Mrs. Neuzinha, with fresh fish, wild chicken and sometimes several meats, not to mention the fantastic setting where lunch is served. In addition to filling the stomach, it is also filling the eyes! After that, just lying and packing on that hammock, enjoying the breeze and understanding the value of life…
Due to the notable potential in the medium and long term that the community offers as a tourist destination, Selvagem Tours sees several new leisure options, which will soon be available. Among them, we can mention musical performance with Sax on the Beach, a new trail to the Amazon River, camping in the forest, bonfires on the beach, fishing, visiting the Casa da Farinha. Regarding the structure and logistics, there is a projection of transfers by canoe, boat, motorcycle and car, as well as accommodation in hammocks, boats or houses.
Okay, you already rested after that wonderful lunch and enjoyed the momentum of the hammock, but now let us move on, right?
We will continue along the rocky banks of the Arapiuns River to our favorite stop, the fascinating Ponta do Torono and Lago Grande. It is difficult to describe exactly what you will find, but frankly, it is at least sensational to see how nature builds havens. Life immediately becomes wonderful when you witness places like these…
We will walk through sand dunes, which stretch for tens of meters, dividing the Arapiuns River into a large lake, with dozens of birds flying over our heads and dolphins showing their fins. Yes, life is beautiful. Our idea is to present you with a picnic with fresh fruits such as watermelon, pineapple, banana, passion fruit, orange, apple and coconut. Take advantage of the moment, as it is a very good place for photos and dives in clear waters.
After that, we will continue to Ponta do Icuxi, to see the sunset, perfect time to remember everything that happened, in a day that will remain in your mind and heart for the rest of your life.
After sunset we will return to Alter do Chao, sailing under a clear and starry sky and awesome memories of the day. Selvagem Tours understands that you are the reason for our tours and that is why we do everything with the utmost care and attention…

One of the most beautiful points that even covers three-quarters of the river, place in which your eyes and senses will marvel at beauty and tranquility, perfect elements to meditate and ponder our lives.
