Amazon Dream Cruise

A traditional wooden Amazon riverboat operating out of Santarem, Brazil

The Amazon Dream is an exceptional, and yet traditional, Brazilian riverboat affording passengers the chance to follow in the footsteps of some of the great Amazonian explorers, while enjoying all the comfort and hospitality they could ask for.

Additional flights to and from Santarém are required, from either Manaus or Belém.

Her nine cabins are spacious and well-fitted; the guides are hugely knowledgeable and enthusiastic; the chef is a master at turning out wonderful meals based on local ingredients and recipes ... and the barman knows all the cocktails that can be made from the rich array of Amazon fruits!

The itineraries - of five, six or ten days - have been honed over the years to offer a great mix of natural history, local contact and relaxation, in an area of the Brazilian jungle less often visited around Santarém*, but still bursting with flora and fauna, and human warmth.

Under French ownership, you may well hear the smooth sounds of a French accent or two on board the Amazon Dream, and are sure to find a charming joie de vivre atmosphere in which passengers can relax and unwind in one of the greatest settings on Earth.

Please note that a pre-arranged visa is required by holders of US, Canadian and Australian passports, in order to enter Brazil. Contact us for more details.

What people are saying about the Amazon Dream

The trip was great. I really didn’t know I signed up for something that nice. I thought I was just getting on a boat and there was going to be a guide that just showed us some places. I didn’t know that I was going to be that taken care of. It was actually awkward because I’m not used to people being so friendly like the crew and guide were. They truly did seem interested in making my time memorable.

The Amazon Dream was just that a dream. From the boat, my cabin, food and the 10 day tour it was over the top. I can’t say enough about the owner and his staff. As I only speak English, they helped me with the language barrier. They ALL went above and beyond. The 10 days seemed to just slip away. I liked being on the two rivers to see the two different ecosystems.
