Venue

"Cheiro do Mato", a year-round eco-lodge on a peninsula in the middle of Brazil's tropical rainforest, 200 km north-east of Manaus. Situated on the banks of a black water river bordering the Anavilhanas National Park  – a labyrinth of hundreds of wooded islands and canals, home to many rare animal species.

____ Where You Sleep

Naturally, in the middle of an undeveloped rainforest area we had to challenge ourselves to find the most beautiful way to set you up comfortably while not damaging the forest around you.
We oriented ourselves to local customs: Large traditional Amazon ships supply enough space to hang everyone's hammock  – which we will provide. And for those of the adventurous kind, we will help you spot a perfect place to sleep in the woods.

____ What You Eat

Using as few foreign products as possible, we cooperate with surrounding settlers, local plantations and streetfood vendors to deliver an authentic culinary experience. Both breakfast and dinner will be prepared in our restaurant by local chefs and come with regional fish and meat or vegetarian ingredients. For lunch, exclusive pop-up street food vendors bring you Brazilian delicacies as well as European and South American classics.

Program

In addition to a musically diverse program, our location, with its direct forest and water access and its proximity to the National Park, presents seemingly endless possibilities.

____ What You Do

The program also offers a range of traditional as well as modern workshops and activities. Learn about indigenous traditions from locals or get active by yourself. For more detailed information please revel in our spreadsheet.
