Home to half of the world’s remaining rainforest, the Amazon offers fascinating lessons on biodiversity. Fully immerse yourself in nature by staying on a luxury river boat or at an eco lodge, enjoying daily excursions with your expert local guides. It’s the perfect trip for nature-lovers who appreciate the thrill of authentic river and jungle adventures.
Please note: this private Amazon tour is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.
In Brazil, fly into Manaus followed by a private hydroplane flight to the Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge located on the world’s largest river archipelago with close proximity to the “Meeting of the Waters” and the fabled Amazon River.
While in Ecuador, fly to Coca and explore the rainforest from the Napo Wildlife Center or from La Selva Amazon Ecolodge, which are focused on eco-tourism.
In Peru, we recommend the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica located near Puerto Maldonado, a short flight from Cusco. Exotic yet accessible, this rustic but elegant lodge is situated in a private reserve, surrounded by a vast jungle canopy and located alongside the Madre de Dios River.
All our luxury Amazon tour options include an expert naturalist guide who will accompany you as you discover the rainforest from above the treetops on a canopy, and boat along the rivers at night to search for caiman (small alligators). Go hiking and piranha fishing, or learn how to shoot a traditional bow and arrow. Specific activities can be incorporated into your itinerary depending on your interests.
An alternative way of seeing the Amazon is aboard a luxurious cruise ship. Explore the headwaters of the Amazon located near Iquitos, Peru on a 3, 4 or 7 night cruise aboard the M/V Aria. Discover remote estuaries in the Peruvian rainforest and the Pacaya Samira Reserve. Twice the size of Yellowstone Park, this area teems with wild aquatic life. Learn techniques from local fishermen and explore the Amazon by hiking through the jungle. See pink dolphins, sloths, caimans, macaws and other bird species.
Private charter options are also available: In Peru, the Delfin I is an ideal charter option for a small party and we can organize a private yacht in Brazil. For both options, our on-board naturalist guide will accompany your explorations and we will staff the ship according to the requirements of your group.
Visit the Amazon Basin, home to the world’s largest remaining rainforest and unparalleled biodiversity.
