Peru Amazon adventure tours don’t get any better than this exquisite week-long journey of exotic discovery, from the bright lights and colonial charms of Lima to the wild and anthropological riches of the Amazon Rainforest. Filled with history, fun, relaxation, and luxurious adventure, you’ll explore one of the most sought after South American cities and sail down the Amazon river in style aboard one of the region’s most impressive riverboats.
Historical and Exotic Excursions
Your adventure begins in Lima, the lively launchpad for all Peru tours. From immersing yourself in the mix of ancient Incan civilization and Spanish influence to feasting on culinary delights like ceviche, the often overlooked capital has so much to offer. Enjoy a visit to the famous Larco Museum and sunsets over the Pacific before setting out for the Amazon.
Embark on an exotic voyage through this remarkable rainforest realm down the Marañon River, and witness the celebration of colors and calls of its inhabitants, including monkeys, birds, dolphins, and sloths. Escorted by expert bilingual naturalist guides, you’ll venture out on smaller skiffs to stealthily navigate the narrow channels and tributaries of the Amazon in search of the main attraction – the wildlife. If you desire to jump in and join the fish – no problem. You will have access to kayaks and paddleboards for a truly immersive experience. You never know, you may even see the rare ‘smiling’ pink dolphins up close.
The ship will carefully maneuver through the pristine protected areas of the Yanayacu and Pucate Rivers, where you can peek at pink dolphins and listen to endemic birds perform a capella concerts. Don’t be surprised if you lose track of the varieties of monkeys you will encounter, such as the Monk Saki, squirrel monkey, and pygmy marmoset. A truly rewarding experience is the chance to engage with the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, visiting local villagers in Yachay and Puerto Miguel who rarely see outside visitors to get a glimpse at their remarkable way of life.
Rest Your Head In Style
For those opting for five-star accommodations, Lima’s Belmond Miraflores Park hotel’s prime location overlooking a peaceful park and Pacific Ocean is quite probably the best place from which to explore the highlights of the city. In the Amazon, an equally luxurious floating boutique hotel awaits in the form of the delightful Delfin III riverboat. With just 22 cabins but plenty of stunning social areas, such as sundeck, spa, pool, dining room, bar and lounge, there is plenty on board to keep you pampered and entertained when not out on excursions.
After enjoying a multichromatic sunset in the Amazon rainforest on the panoramic view deck, freshen up in your room’s Spanish-style hot water shower. Fall into pure cotton sheets on orthopedic beds as you rest before your next adventure. Whether you are in a cozy hotel room or on a ship, you will never be at a loss for comfort and luxury.
Unique Canopy Experience
For a unique perspective of the rich rainforest canopy, a trip to the Amazon Natural Park to one of the longest canopy walkways in the world allows you to scale a suspended walkway stretching for half a kilometer through the treetops for unrivaled wildlife spotting opportunities.
