High water itinerary
November to May / Saturday – Tuesday
Iquitos (IQI) to Nauta (IQT)
This 3-night Aqua Nera Explorer Cruise manages to fit major highlights of the Peruvian Amazon and the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve in an action-packed itinerary. Go piranha fishing, trek into the dense jungle with our experienced guides in search of wildlife such as Amazon monkeys, three-toed sloths, hoatzins, toucans, macaws and unravel the mystery of giant water lilies. Journeys focus on the Ucayali tributary, where wildlife feeding and nesting grounds are aplenty.
You’ll have the opportunity to view taricaya turtles and spectacled caimans in their natural habitat, along with Amazon’s famous pink river dolphins whose love of frolicking in the river will delight the young and old. You’ll also have enough time to find your favourite spot on the spacious five-star Aqua Nera, where you’ll sample a wide range of Amazonian produce from chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino’s inventive and delicious on-board menu.
