A vast network of smaller rivers come together to form the largest river in the world, The mighty Amazon. Stretching across the continent of South America from Peru into Northern Brazil, it is a unique habitat, home to extraordinary and exotic creatures. As well as being home to native Indian communities, the dense rainforest that surrounds these rivers is teeming with wildlife and plants found nowhere else on earth and this is the main reason the Amazon is a place so many travellers dream of visiting.
Taking an expedition cruise along the Amazon is a fantastic and enriching experience that will open up your eyes to the wonders of nature and this region’s incredible biodiversity. Adventure cruises in the Amazon operate inside protected ecological reserves where local communities are supported, and a special effort is made to preserve the natural environment. An advantage of experiencing the Amazon from the river is the opportunity to travel further and explore more in-depth while enjoying the comforts and facilities you might expect in a hotel.
Due to its geographical location, the Amazon experiences two seasons: a wet season with frequent downpours and higher water levels and a dry season with less rainfall and slightly higher temperatures. The river expedition itineraries that we recommend are adaptable and cruises will run in both the wet and the dry season adjusting to the changeable conditions. It is possible to visit the region at just about any time of year and still enjoy an impressive range of activities.
Latin Routes works with adventure cruises from Manaus in Brazil, Coca in Ecuador and Iquitos in Peru. Both countries offer a range of riverboat accommodation standards and full-board programmes of varying lengths, so you can be sure we will find the right ship for you.
