Log Canoes

Ride along the canals and tributaries of the Amazon in river canoes, helmed by the young men of Boca da Valeria. These canoes are traditionally crafted from a solid piece of marupa, a tropical hardwood that is easy to carve and also resistant to insects. The canoes are used by fishermen as well as for transportation between settlements on the Amazon.
