per01-aquaexpeditions-free

Take a cruise of the Amazon on one of a choice of small, riverboat-style contemporary expedition boats, with daily excursions.

You can venture to the heart of the jungle without sacrificing your own creature comforts: there is now a choice of stylish Amazon expedition vessels, all based on the traditional design of an Amazon riverboat. The MVs Aria, Nera, Delphin I,II and III bring more than a touch of luxury to the Amazonian experience, with gourmet dining, elegant indoor spaces and a beautiful polished wood observation decks from which to breathe in the sights and sounds of the rainforest. For the pièce de résistance, panoramic windows in every cabin provide you with a private view of the ever-changing panorama outside. The new addition to the choice of ships is La Perla, a mid-range vessel which also offers the traditional riverboat experience and explorations of some of the most stunning Amazonian jungle locations but at a more economical price. Cruises last 4-7 days.

There are also carefully designed programmes of daily excursions to take you deeper into the jungle, accompanied by expert guides who can point out wildlife and share their illuminating knowledge. As you follow the winding route to and from Iquitos, you can spot pink river dolphins, monkeys at play and huge crowds of caiman, as well as encountering Amazonian communities and trying your hand at piranha fishing.

Our choice of Peruvian Amazon expedition cruise vessels:  Aria Amazon, Aqua Nera, Delfins I and II, Delfin III, and La Perla.
