ARIA AMAZON

Expedition Cruise – 7 Nights

HIGH WATER SEASON (December – May)

 

We highly recommend our 7-night Amazon River Expedition Cruise on the Aria Amazon where you may experience our most luxurious and comprehensive Amazon journey among the Amazon River’s two powerful tributaries: the Marañon and the Ucayali, as well as several hidden black water lakes.

Kayak, canoe and swim in these unspoiled black waters, keeping eyes peeled for the Amazon’s legendary pink dolphins. Be witness of one of the great spectacles of the Southern Hemisphere, the birth of the Amazon River. Take a short jungle walk in the San Jose flooded forest and see the unforgettable giant water lilies. Enjoy a breakfast picnic accompanied by jungle symphony and fishing along the black waters of the Pacaya River.
