The best way to experience all the Amazon region has to offer is to cruise its namesake river on a comfortable riverboat. The Amazon Basin is roadless over much of its area and travel upon the rivers is the traditional method of transportation, whether by indigenous people in dugout canoes or modern adventure tourists.
Also, an Amazon Cruise may be the most enjoyable way to explore the Amazon region. You experience "timeless" travel on the worlds' largest river while you observe the diverse flora and fauna of the rainforest. Something new and interesting is always to be seen around the next bend in the river.
But, you won't be stuck on the cruise boat either. As your riverboat travels the Amazon and its tributaries, you will enjoy frequent off the boat excursions, such as hikes through the rainforest and small-boat outtings to view wildlife. Your Naturalist Guides will give explanations of the incredible plants and captivating animals that you'll see. You will even visit a riverside village or two and meet some of the true natives of the Amazon.
An Amazon Rainforest Cruise will provide you with a genuine experience of this great river, the rainforest, its wildlife and the people who call the rainforest their home.
Cruising deep into such a large and complex ecosystem as the Amazon will give you lasting memories...of marveling at flocks of parrots crossing the sky above, watching children from a small village play at the river’s edge, and the towering trees that form a green corridor thru which the rivers flow.
An appreciation of the quantity and variety of the flora and fauna that inhabit the Amazon can only be gained from travel such as this. You will cruise along remote rivers surrounded by this incredible biological diversity.
