Cruise the Amazon in a luxury river boat, getting closer to abundant wildlife and indigenous communities.

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.
