Amazing, diverse and spectacular
An Amazon cruise is an exceptional expedition and a once in a lifetime adventure experience. The Amazon rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest and covers much of northwest Brazil, while also partially extending into the neighbouring South American countries of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. The Amazon basin is crisscrossed by thousands of waterways, including the Amazon River.
Although South America boasts a wide variety of climates, steamy heat is the typical forecast for the Amazon basin. During the rainy season of December to April you can expect the hot, humid and damp tropical heat to subside a little. On a luxury cruise adventure you can explore untouched areas of significant biodiversity in the depths of the Amazon rainforest.
There are very few places in the world that can match the Amazon region, for the sheer diversity of its amazing and fascinating flora and fauna. Venture into the jungle to discover ecosystems, breathtaking landscapes and endemic wildlife. Learn about the natural habitats of the endangered Amazon River dolphins, Taricaya turtles and manatees, and look out for the unique species of plant life in the flooded forests. Don’t forget to gaze above into the leafy canopy, to spot the dangling three-toed sloth and exotic birdlife.
