Cruise the Amazon

Journey along the almost inconceivably vast river artery of the world’s largest rainforest: what better way to see the Amazon than by boat? This is the jungle wilderness of your childhood imagination, populated by colourful (and very vocal) animal and bird life and towered over by an immense canopy of buttress-rooted trees.

The river boats we offer will make the experience a more comfortable one than you might have imagined, allowing you to simply focus on the sights, sounds and activities – piranha fishing, local people passing by in their dug-out canoes, toucans flying overhead. All the while the steamy, verdant scenery drifting by will continually ignite your sense of wonder.

Early mornings can be wonderfully cool before the tropical heat rises and envelops you. The sunsets are frequently spectacular, as an orange burst descends over the tree canopy and gradually disappears to usher in the nocturnal sounds of the jungle. And there is nothing like standing on the deck at night, with just the dark jungle all around and a blanket of stars above you.
