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, it borders the Anavilhanas National Park  – a labyrinth of hundreds of wooded islands, that are home to many rare animals and plants.

____ Where You Sleep

Naturally, in the middle of an unspoiled rainforest area, we had to challenge ourselves finding the most beautiful way to set you up comfortably, while not damaging the surrounding environment.
We oriented accommodations to local customs: Our traditional Amazon ship supplies enough space to place everyone's personal hammock, which will be provided. Enjoy the morning sun with a stunning view over the whole river delta, while breathing in fresh air. And for those of the adventurous kind, you are able to place your hammock in one of our jungle camps. Waking up in the woods, welcomed by an orchestra of tweeting birds, is definitely the way to start your day right.

____ What You Eat

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

Program

In addition to a musically diverse program, our location - with direct forest and water access and a proximity to the National Park - presents endless possibilities. Choose between music nights, tours, activities & workshops.

____ What You Do

Explore the tropical world on different boat trips or jungle hikes. You can choose from a variety of tours, from relaxed excursions to more demanding expeditions. All start off straight from the venue.
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 with activities such as wakeboarding or canoeing. For further details read our full program here..
