Located in Rio Negro, about a one-hour boat trip away from Manaus, the Lake Janauari Ecological Park spreads through 9,000 hectares of dryland woods, floodplains and flooded forests.

Several travel agencies offer day-long boat rides to the park. Most rides include a visit to Encontro das Águas.

Featuring bilingual local tour guides, packages include a regional lunch at a typical restaurant and a voadeira (a type of canoe) tour through the region’s lakes and streams.

The Park also offers one of the most memorable elements of Manaus: the giant lily pads, an Amazon plant with diameters measuring up to 1.8 meters. Known as the queen of the lakes, this giant green pad blooms over shallow and still waters.

The giant lily pad flower is considered the symbol of the Amazon and lasts only three days. It blooms as a white flower, turns into a lilac shade and becomes dark red before it dies.
