Amazon bike transport

Is there a boat,that ia able to take a bike from,let's say Puerto Francisco de Orellana(on Rio Napo river)in Equador,to Manaus,Brazil.

If not is there any similar boat line wich will take me Manaus from Equador or Peru?

Generaly,I want to go aroun Columbia,but not by air if posible.

Hi Jondoe

Try searching on 'Amazon' and 'transport' on the site and the HUBB. You will get some useful information.

Here are a few links to get you started:

Thanks Suzan,i'v already seen that post and some others,but nobody took a boat from Equador.
Just looking at the maps,seems like it's no problem to go from Equador to Manaus,I think.

If you find something on Equador,please let me know.

Thanks anyway!

IIRC , there was a couple Israelis who wanted to do that route last year .

Dunno if they found a way , but via Peru was no probs .
