Amazonia (sometimes called Pan-Amazonia) is a huge region covering about 40% of the South American continent – most of northern Brazil, parts of northern Bolivia, eastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, south-eastern Colombia, southern Venezuela, southern Guyana, southern Suriname and southern French Guiana. It is one of the world’s most diverse biological areas and is fed by rivers taking their offspring in the Andes of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia and running into the Atlantic ocean in east Brazil.

Amazonas’ territory is 98% covered by the rain forest and is named after the Amazon River. Its capital, Manaus, is a bustling modern city right in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. The Amazon Rainforest is the largest rainforest in the world and is of great ecological significance, as its biomass is capable of absorbing enormous amounts of carbon dioxide. Conservation of the Amazon Rainforest has been a major issue in recent years. In Amazonas, the exuberance of the tropical rain forest, associated with hot and humid climate, are responsible for the largest biodiversity on Earth. It is estimated that the Amazon Region shelters about 2,5 million species of insects, thousands of species of plants, approximately 2 thousand species of fishes, about 950 species of birds and some 200 species of mammals. Amazonas is also the home of around 200 thousands Brazilian native Indians.

We went to Brazil and covered the Brazilian Amazonas… The beauty of the beaches and fast life of Rio and the natural beauty of the Amazon forest, the pulsating beat of Rio and the equally pulsating silence of the Amazon – this contrast is what had us in thrall… We have tried to craft an experience for you that we hope will showcase this contrast in experiences to create a unique tapestry…

Beyonder in Brazil and the Amazon

This is as ‘Beyonder’ as it gets… A combination of the fast, glitzy city life and the slow, spectacular nature – soak in the raw power of nature in the dense Amazon rainforests or sway to the power of the Samba beat…
