When Do You Want To Go?
The magical winding Amazon River is home to some of the most biodiverse wildlife, birdlife and plant species in the world, and what better way to see it than on a cruise. The Aqua Nera takes guests into the depths of the Peruvian Amazon in the comfort of luxury. Offering exceptional levels of personalized, five-star service enabled by a highly-exclusive 1:1 crew-to-guest ratio and cuisine by Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, one of Peru’s finest chefs, known for creating refined cuisine from native Amazonian produce.
Begin your journey in the Peruvian Amazon in the riverside city of Iquitos, two hours flying time from Lima and Cusco, or in the smaller town of Nauta a little further south. The region is lush Amazonian jungle, rich in aquatic life, with a high concentration of wildlife in the waters and on land. As you sail towards Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, the Amazon River meets the tributaries of Marañón and Ucayali. Here, you can begin to spot endangered pink river dolphins dipping in and out of the waters around you. On dry land, squirrel and saddleback tamarin monkeys swing from tree branches, and you may even catch a glimpse of the brown three-toed sloth or capybara. The cruise isn’t just about the wildlife and birdlife you can see, it’s also about engaging with local people. There are over 200 communities with around 42,000 people living in the Amazon national reserves and Aqua Expeditions participates in outreach and conservation efforts to ensure they remain protected. You’ll have the opportunity to meet these people, learn about their traditions and way of life as you continue your journey. This enchanting region is ripe for exploration and our Aqua Expeditions cruise is just a taste of what can be discovered. It’s the perfect introduction to the Amazon for first-time adventurers and a trip that shouldn’t be missed on your South American journey.
