Beautiful Boutique Cruising in Peru's Northern Amazon
The 8-passenger M/V Cattleya riverboat, named after a genus of orchid, on account of its beauty, offers superior cruising to the famous Pacaya-Samiria Reserve in the Loreto region of the Peruvian Amazon and an exclusive itinerary to the Tres Fronteras.
On these 4, 5 and 8-day Amazon adventures you may visit the remote Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve - the largest protected wetland reserve in the world and one of the areas of highest bio-diversity, or a mysterious tri-point of countries and cultures.
Your journey is guaranteed to be a personalized and intimate one as her on-board staff pride themselves on their gourmet cuisine and service. The four suites on board are the epitome of style, with twin or king-size beds draped in the finest European linens, gel technology pillows to keep you comfy and cool, luxury bathrobes and minibars at guests' disposal.
The boat's social areas are no exception, with refined cutlery and glass brought from Europe used in the comfortable dining room where you'll be waited on hand and foot, and two cozy sofas on the observation deck, shaded under a canopy awning, where you'll while away your free time in the refreshing breeze as you take in the beautiful scenery.
In addition to traversing the wildlife haven that is the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, the Cattleya also offers fascinating and exclusive one-way and return itineraries to the Tres Fronteras, where Peru meets Colombia and Brazil, meeting tribes, an artist and exotic wildlife along a much less navigated stretch of the Amazon.
The cruises are great for single travellers as there is a low (25%) single supplement, and they also cater well for children too (minimum age 8), with children less than 13 years of age receiving a 25% discount, and the two suites on the main deck not only have roll-out beds but can also be interconnected.
For the more adventurous passenger there is also the option to use one of the four double kayaks on board to get up close and personal to the Amazon wildlife.
