Stretching across the continent and breathing life into no less than nine South American countries, the Amazon river winds its way through the exceptional ecosystem and unparalleled biodiversity of the wondrous Amazon Rainforest, making it not only the longest river in the world but without a doubt one of the most spectacular, and the perfect setting for a truly magical, memorable holiday of a lifetime.
Whether your days are spent aboard the ship, or delving further into the depths of the Amazon on kayaking tours, fishing expeditions, thrilling zodiac cruises or exploring the jungle on foot with knowledgable guides, the beauty and variety of this river and its surrounding luscious forest is undeniable, and encountering pink dolphins and giant otters, watching monkeys swing through the trees, crocodiles sunbathe on its banks, and colourful birdlife swooping overhead whilst slowly drifting on its tranquil tributaries, peaceful lakes and into its flooded forests is truly to feel as though you are part of nature itself.
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, making an Amazon river cruise a truly enriching experience that will open up your eyes to the wonders of nature and this region's incredible biodiversity.
Latin Routes works with adventure cruises from Manaus in Brazil, Coca in Ecuador and Iquitos in Peru. All countries offer a range of riverboat accommodation standards and full-board programmes of varying lengths, so you can be sure that we will find the right ship, and holiday, for you.
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, however, it is hot and humid all year round. 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.
