Specialist Knowledge

Need some help with your trip? Our advisors have travelled extensively and using their firsthand knowledge & experience can help craft your perfect holiday.

The Cattleya is a small, intimate vessel for only eight passengers to explore the rainforest in comfort, a sense of isolation and feeling close to nature.

The four suites on board are the epitome of style, with twin or king-size beds draped in the finest linens, luxury bathrobes and minibars at guests' disposal. Your journey is guaranteed to be a personalized and intimate one as her on-board staff pride themselves on their cuisine and service. 

In addition to traversing the wildlife haven that is the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, the Cattleya also includes the Rio Marañon on its itineraries, giving passengers the opportunity to gain a unique perspective of the jungle's spiritual realm with the mind-opening experience of a fascinating shamanic ceremony.

The Cattleya is perfect for individual travellers. She is also ideal for small groups who can charter the whole ship for a reasonable tariff - please call us for details.
