An authentic adventure in the heart of the Amazon
Experience leaving the modern world behind and begin your journey of discoverying into one of the world’s most remote regions.
Gather on the ship’s observation deck and watch as civilization fades away, while the vast Amazon River unfolds. Visiting the mysterious Amazon River Basin, one of Earth’s most exotic natural realms and our planet’s largest rainforest ecosystem, is an unforgettable experience. The longest navigable river, the Amazon, winds more than 4,000 miles from its source in the Andes Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean, and its tributaries fan out over 1.5 million square miles to sustain the lush flora and extraordinary fauna of this fragile environment.
Explore the boundless diversity of nature’s most wondrous offering from delicate orchids to transparent glass frogs and pink river dolphins, from the trees of the lush rainforest to the depths of black water tributaries.
In an authentic atmosphere of exploration, beyond the confluence of the Rio Ucayali and Rio Marañon – the legendary inception of the Amazon Riverwhere the primeval calls of birds and wildlife echo across the rainforest.
Travel far beyond civilization, navigating black water rivers and walking in remote forests where the numbers of butterfly species climbs into the thousands, and many species have yet to be classified or even discovered.
On your expedition vessel, expert Peruvian naturalist will lead you through the rainforest to see rare indigenous species and guide you down the Amazon’s secretive, sinuous tributaries aboard special small excursion boats. You will also visit local villages to gain insight into the traditional way of life of the river people (people who live in the river) and see a shaman perform an ancient ritual at Pacaya Samiria National Reserve and Peruvian Amazon
