Day 4-6 Amazon Cruise

Holding over one-half of the planet’s remaining rainforest, this astonishing ecosystem owes its existence to a truly life source: the Amazon River.
Rising in the Peruvian Andes, the Amazon River winds its way east over the northern part of South America until reaching the Atlantic Ocean. It carries into the Atlantic a higher volume of water than the earth’s top-10 largest rivers flowing into the ocean combined. Recent studies claims that the Amazon River is actually longer than the Nile by 65 miles; and researchers at the National Geographic Society have determined the source point of the river to be at Mount Mismi in Arequipa (in Southern Peru). Its “green treasures” are a wealth that hold great promises for Earth and mankind in the future.

Experience a symphony unlike any other – a harmonious convergence of wind, water, weather, and wildlife, crafting an unparalleled sensory journey for our esteemed guests. Within the Pacaya Samiria, a pristine sanctuary largely untouched by human intervention, nature takes center stage. Amidst the rainforest’s cacophonous yet soothing melodies, visitors encounter the essence of unadulterated natural splendor.

As daylight surrenders to the night, the Amazon awakens in a crescendo of sounds previously unheard. Elusive creatures, concealed during the day, captivate our guests with their inquisitive calls. Furthermore, the tranquil river’s gentle flow and the rustling leaves assume a profound significance in the dimly lit ambiance.

While recordings of crickets, the river’s murmurs, avian choruses, and the rustling of leaves can offer a glimpse, they pale in comparison to the immersive experience of being at the heart of this captivating performance – where every sound and gust of wind can be not only heard but also felt. Seize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become an integral part of the Amazon Rainforest, forging a connection with nature that transcends description.

Accommodations: Delfin Owners Suite

The Owner’s Suite has the most spacious interior of all the cabins.
