    Shall we daydream during the day? The fantastic Refúgio dos Sonhos has this name for several special reasons, and it can mentioned that it shelters and protects various types of animals, which walk around the property quietly. It also has refreshing streams, two fish tanks made by Mr. Júlio’s own hands (a true story of overcoming and creativity), fruit orchards, beaches and the trail, used by the famous Jungle Marathon.

    After lunch we are already going with a beautiful baggage in memory and with good expectations of the coming ahead, after all, Fordlandia is waiting for us for a very important mission…

    The trip there is the ideal time to talk about the discoveries made so far, about the landscapes seen, about the people known and emotions experienced. Also, take the opportunity to rest until arrival, as we disembark when we advise you to prepare yourself, because as mentioned, the next day reserves a historic meeting.

    Where there is a date, there is always magic! Fordlandia does its part here. You, on the other hand, have the important mission of functioning as a time machine, bringing bright colors to structures that defy time and keep the history of thousands of people within them. We will do the ******** City tour of Fordlandia getting to know the city, including what emerged after the aforementioned episodes, visiting the remains of Henry Ford’s presence in the Amazon, including the unmistakable steel water tank that stands out about the village and that guaranteed the water supply of the old residents.

    The huge ruined shed, inside which we find machinery and even trucks from the 1930s Ford Motor Company, is another beautiful history lesson on the spot. We will also pass through a mall along which some of the original homes of the Americans of that time still stand, in addition to other warehouses used for storing the syringe and which are currently subdivided into boxes and function as a kind of market. Fordlandia is a place to be visited by the historical context, to try to feel in the skin what this misadventure of Henry Ford was. His misfortune that became our adventure!
