Amazon Expedition Cruise (Aqua Nera)

Our acclaimed 7-night Amazon Expedition Cruise lets guests experience the most luxurious and complete of Amazon journeys among the two tributaries, Marañon and Ucayali, that give the Amazon river its life. This all-encompassing itinerary lets explorers discover the best that Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve has to offer, including its hidden lakes and lagoons, as well as amazing jungle trails.

Kayak, canoe and swim in the most pristine Amazon upriver waters, with several opportunities to spot the Amazon’s famous pink river dolphins. Learn about life in an Amazon village, and then fish for piranhas like a local. Become a bona fide naturalist by the end of your 7-night trip, absorbing the in-depth knowledge our experienced guides impart on every excursion and jungle walk.

No two days of adventure is ever the same, except for the luxurious yet understated presence of the Aqua Nera. Return to your five-star home on the Amazon every day to the inspiring Peruvian Amazon cuisine of chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino and the luxurious comforts of your suite and many amenities. You won’t want this trip to be over.

• Low Water Season (June through October) vs. High Water Season (November Through May)

If seeing glorious Amazon rainforest at its lushest and getting up close to lots of birds and mammals (and enjoying slightly cooler temperatures) sounds most attractive, then December to May might be your best choice.

If jungle hikes and spotting exotic migratory birds perched on trees between flights across Amazonia appeals most to you, while still having the chance to see capuchin monkeys, kinkajou, and other mammals, and going on great fishing expeditions, you might be happier choosing the warmer, low water season.
