Overview


Join us for this unforgettable journey featuring a cruise aboard the Aqua or the Aria - sailing in tandem just for us - in the mysterious Amazon River Basin. These small, expedition river vessels evoke the 19th century's great age of discovery while providing 21st-century comforts. This custom-designed itinerary also includes two nights in historic Lima, Peru, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Cruise into one of the earth's most exotic natural realms and our planet's largest rainforest ecosystem, where the number of butterfly species climbs into the thousands, and other species have yet to be classified or even discovered. Led by expert Peruvian naturalists, seek rare indigenous flora and fauna—delicate orchids, towering ceiba trees, pink river dolphins and slow-moving sloths. Visit local villages to observe the traditional way of life of the ribereños (river people) and see a shaman perform an ancient ritual of purification. Note that space is extremely limited for this trip. (Note that in addition to the deposit, there will be a payment due on July 1, 2014 of $3,000 and final payment due on October 6, 2014.)
