Adventure and challenge in the wildest place on earth, NOLS Amazon demands commitment and hard work.
Based in the state of Mato Grosso in southcentral Brazil, we are located in a transition zone between the two largest biomes of the country, the dry forest and savannah of the southern uplands known as the cerrado and the moist lowland forests of the Amazon Basin. Our location puts us in position to access some of largest tributaries of the Amazon River, and these rivers provide ideal corridors for wilderness and wildlife exploration.
Our courses offer opportunities for real expedition adventure, including remoteness from civilization and the challenges of self-care in the tropical forest. As well as its natural diversity, Brazil also has a diverse and fascinating human culture.
The Amazon region is still frontier country. Its inhabitants have a fascinating way of life that we are privileged to sometimes share, and we are pleased to be collaborating with land management agencies in Brazil as a pioneer in outdoor education in this region.
Come explore with us.
