Introducing Tefé

A gritty bustling town, Tefé sits on the shores of the massive Lago Tefé, with good opportunities for hiking, boating and visiting local indigenous villages. Tefé is best known as the jumping-off point to Reserva de Desenvolvimento Sustentável Mamirauá (Mamirauá Reserve), one of the best overall eco-destinations in the Amazon. But Tefé's leaders have worked mightily to convince Mamiraua-bound tourists to budget time for exploring Tefé too. New tourism projects, combined with improved air and boat transport options, are slowly but surely making Tefé a destination unto itself.
