Amazon River The Amazon River in South America is the second longest river in the world and has the largest waterflow – it accounts for approximately one-fifth of the world’s total river flow. The river flows its way through seven South American countries covering roughly 40% of the country. It stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Andes Mountains over a course that takes it close to 4,000 miles (6,400 km). Flowing through its origins in the Andes Mountains through the world’s largest rainforest before flooding the plains of Brazil, the Amazon River is a force to be reckoned with.
