The Pantanal region in Brazil gets little tourists compared to the well-known Amazon, it is still considered to be a travel destination off the tourist beaten path.

All aspects of the cruise are designed to help enjoy the best that this region has to offer and to appeal to travelers who are looking for a luxurious, but also genuine experience.
The name “Pantanal” comes from the Portuguese word pantano, which refers to a wetland, swamp or marsh. It is home to a variety of sub-regional ecosystems, each possessing distinct hydrological, geological and ecological characteristics. During the rainy season, the Pantanals floodplains are completely submerged as water levels rise between two and five meters (six to sixteen feet), which helps nurture a remarkably diverse array of aquatic plants and animals species. During the dry season the plains drain, and the floodplains become grasslands, providing more space for a different set of species.
The best way to experience the natural wonder of the Pantanal is through a naturalist-guided tour, especially with one committed to preservation of the natural environment. Select between the 4-day or 5-day itinerary and visit a UNESCO World Heritage site, explore Corumba's highlights, learn how to cook and experience local beer tasting, visit a typical Pantanal farm and admire the fascinating flora and fauna of the wetlands.
