Thank you for your interest! This journey is either underway or complete, but we do have many other tour options for you to choose from.

Travel past the reaches of civilization, deep into the heart of the great Amazon rainforest. More than 1,300 species of birds, 40,000 plant species, two species of river dolphin, and an abundance of primates are found in this lush, ever-changing realm known simply as “The Amazon.”

While outsiders rarely visit the riverbank villages, our guests — under the guidance of naturalists who were born and reared in similar villages — are greeted like family while we visit local schools and a revered Shaman.

Immerse yourself in the living labyrinth of forests, wildlife, and people along the river. Our river boat offers unrivaled comfort while allowing us to responsibly travel further into the ever-smaller waterways and remote corners of the Upper Amazon Basin.

Tour Highlights

  • Experience the nature and culture of the Amazon with expert naturalists who ensure you learn about the Amazon’s plants, wildlife, people, and history
  • Find birds and mammals here so difficult to see in less-pristine areas, from macaws to piping-guans, large woodpeckers, fabulous raptors, and more
  • Explore the fascinating relationship between the river and the people who live along the banks
  • Immerse yourself in an atmosphere that pulsates with life
  • Cruise in luxury on a riverboat, built specifically for wildlife and bird observation
