Amazonas: Canoeing in the Flooded Forests of Amazon

The Amazon basin gets annually flooded with up to 15 meters deep of freshwater. Along Rio Negro, the flooded forests are called igapo, as the black water covers the trees almost to their tops. At the Anavilhanas National Park, you get to canoe though this amazing biome, trying to navigate between tree trunks and still notice the wildlife and an occasional sloth in the trees.
