Voyage into the world’s largest river basin and explore the Peruvian Amazon

The Amazon: one of the wildest, most remote corners of Earth. For those drawn to the natural beauty of our planet it’s the ultimate adventure, which is why we’re so excited to announce our new eco-cruise along the “River of Life.”

Voyage into the world’s largest river basin, an unparalleled biological reservoir on this thrilling adventure along the mighty Amazon River in Peru. Come face to face with pink dolphins, playful monkeys, sleepy sloths, giant butterflies and a myriad of other rare creatures in the remote Pacaya Samiria Reserve. Travel in high style aboard the Amazon’s only luxury ship enjoying all the comforts of a 5* hotel, the Zafiro. Disembark for guided moonlight safaris, canoe excursions, nature walks and piranha fishing. Amazonian cultural encounters are aplenty in Ribereño villages, receive a blessing from a Shaman and learn ancient customs with the locals. Complete with certified naturalist guides, outdoor jacuzzi, cooking class, pre-cruise hotel in Lima, internal flights and more, this is as once-in-a-lifetime as it gets.

Aboard this luxury Amazon River cruise, you’ll create a lifetime of memories. Drawing on insight from our native Amazon travel guides, we intentionally vary the villages and tributaries we visit, ensuring you get the most authentic rainforest tour experience possible.
