AMATISTA AMAZON CRUISE

Set sail in tropical style and comfort with a small band of explorers aboard the charming Amatista Riverboat.

Your spacious cabin with a private ensuite provides a cool break from the tropical climate, while the full-sized windows in your room means you’ll always have a great vantage point to drink in the tropical river views.

Plus, the food onboard is inspired by the tropical flavours of the Amazon and prepared onboard with fresh local ingredients, so you can truly immerse yourself in the rainforest lifestyle. When not grazing, you could spend your free time in the exterior bar lounge drinking in the vistas from the open-air sundeck.

This may be your last chance to get up and close with this natural wonder. With the current trend of rainforest destruction, this legendary rainforest cover could be halved by 2020. See it up close without contributing heavily to the environmental damage as guided by the onboard certified Amazon naturalist.

ITINERARY

Day 1: Australia – Lima

Get ready to venture into the rugged wilds of the Amazon with your international flight to Peru! Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel for check-in.

Depending on what time you arrive, you may have time to explore Lima’s plethora of edgy art galleries, dance clubs alive with tropical beats or cheers to your holiday with an authentic pisco sour cocktail.

Day 2: Lima – Iquitos – Cruise Embarkation (B, L, D)

The rainforest beckons this morning as you board your flight to Iquitos and transfer to your luxury accommodation for the next six nights, the Amatista Riverboat. Once onboard, you could soak in the magnificent vistas from the 360° sundeck or relax in your air-conditioned cabin, before setting off on a nighttime boat excursion this evening.

Day 3: Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve (B, L, D)

Teeming with colourful macaws and the rare jaguar, keep your eyes peeled and cameras at the ready as you drift idly down the tranquil river to Pacaya-Samiria Reserve today.

This afternoon, venture into the jungle’s depths for a rare glimpse of how life on the river is lived with a local rainforest tribe visit. Afterwards, why not cap off the evening with a Piranha Creek excursion?

Optional activity:

  • Piranha Creek excursion – after dinner, embark on a night excursion to Piranha Creek for a chance to catch an infamous piranha (AUD $99 per person).

Day 4: Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve (B, L, D)

Make port in Nauta this morning for a bout of independent exploration, before cruising further down the river and setting off on a walking jungle expedition!

Learn from your certified naturalist guide about the wealth of medicinal plants in this immense forest, from wasai, great for kidney health, to sodo, a natural nicotine patch! While on the hunt for these well-hidden plants, keep your eyes occasionally turned upwards for a glimpse of howler monkeys.

Day 5 – 7: Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve (B, L, D)

Cruise along the gorgeous waterways and drink in the sights over the next three days, as you venture deep into the Amazon rainforest, leaving all remnants of civilisation behind.

You’ll get to enjoy a walk along the shores of the Ucayali River, home to the Amazon river dolphin and giant otter, visit a local rainforest tribe to see a traditional shaman and share a home cooked meal with a local indigenous family. After dark, you’ll enjoy a nighttime boat excursion with your naturalist guide – keep your eyes peeled for tree frogs and nocturnal birds.

Please note excursions and activities while on the riverboat are dependent on fluctuating water levels and are subject to change.

Day 8: Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve – Cruise Disembarkation – Lima (B)

Keep your cameras at the ready this morning as you explore the shoreline by motorised skiff – this is your last chance to catch a glimpse of the exotic animals that live in this rainforest! Then, leave the tranquillity of the river behind, with a visit to a local Manatee Rescue Centre before continuing to the airport for your flight to Lima.

Upon arrival in Peru’s beautiful capital city, why not treat yourself to an evening of exploration and tantalising Peruvian cuisine. Ceviche, raw fish cured in citrus juice, is a must.

After breakfast, your spectacular Amazon adventure comes to an end. Bid farewell to your newfound friends and transfer to the airport for your flight home.
