Reach into the dense rainforest to admire the exuberance of vegetation
The Peruvian Amazon rainforest is one of the last easily accessible virgin tropical rainforests of the world. Conservation International considers it widely unexplored and one of the global Mega Diversity Hot Spots. Toucans, macaws, parrots, tamarin monkeys, red squirrels and black alligators are among the many wildlife species to keep an eye out for as you cruise along one of its many rivers or creeks.
Cruises along the rivers of the Amazon basin, are reached from Iquitos airport in the north of Peru. There are excellent luxury ships and a variety of other river boats, including the small Cattleya Journey for private charter.
Iquitos Amazon Cruises - Expedition Cruises
Cruising through the Amazon rainforest can be one of the best ways to see the diverse flora and fauna in the area. Peru's Amazon cruises all run in the northern rainforest area through the Pacaya Samiria, close to the borders with Ecuador and Colombia. This can be one of the best places to see Giant River Otters, the endangered Amazon Pink Dolphin, and black alligators.
Iquitos Amazon Cruises - National Parks
The region has remained intact because of limited road access and the fact that it is home to several major National Parks: Manu, Candamo, Tambopata National Reserve, Amarakaeri and Bahuaja Sonene Reserve, altogether summing over 9 million protected acres or 3.6 million hectares -larger than the total area of Belgium-. The wildlife is remarkable, from giant and colorful macaws, to toucans, parrots, tapirs, tamarin monkeys, owls, the gorgeous Southern Amazon Red Squirrels, as well as a large variety of monkeys.
