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.

Is This Trip for You?

This tour is operated in partnership with our sister company International
Expeditions. As such the departures are not exclusive to Exodus and groups
may be a mixture of Exodus, International Expeditions, and other clients.
This trip is booked through Exodus and you will receive the same award
winning customer service that you would expect. International Expeditions
operate with the same core principles used by Exodus and champion the
benefits of small group travel.

Over the 38 years that International Expeditions has been leading Amazon
River cruises, guests have enjoyed unrivaled access to the Peruvian
rainforest’s most pristine areas and the company of the river’s most
knowledgeable guides. Your exciting daily excursions include birding at dawn,
school visits in local villages and even piranha fishing! Join IE and be
transported to the Amazon of your imagination to discover a rainforest that
pulsates with an unrivaled diversity of wildlife.

International Expeditions pioneered travel to the Peruvian Amazon, and our
nature-focused, small-group expedition travel remains the standard for Amazon
Voyage expedition cruises. IE not only pioneered travel to this region, we
still work with many of the naturalist guides that we helped to train.
Ensuring a worry-free and educational journey, these expert local naturalist
guides — along with an expedition leader — accompany our Amazon Voyage
cruises. Each day, these knowledgeable Amazon River travel guides use their
decades of learning and guiding experience to serve as lecturers, field
guides and friends as you explore the rainforest.

International Expeditions’ exclusive Amazon River tour covers more than 600
miles on the Amazon and its tributaries. You travel deep into the protected
Pacaya-Samiria Reserve and explore three different habitats so you have the
best chance of spotting rare wildlife! On our Amazon River cruises, we look
for monkeys, birds, sloths and other mammals, pink and gray dolphins and so
much more.
