Why the Amazing Amazon is Adventure Travel At It’s Best
“The primeval rain forest of the Amazon Basin continues to fire the imagination of dreamers and explorers”. Come along on this amazing journey by International Expeditions as they take you into the wild Amazon. With 28 years of exploring, they have been adapting to all the changes and will give you the best this part of the world has to offer. You can still walk amid the protected forest and discover the mystic rain forest.
Where Your Amazon Journey Begins…
Start your journey in Iquitos, Peru. A city of 600,000 with no roads or highways to the outside world-only air and water. Here is where you will board La Amatista, your home for 7 nights. She is a charming , comfortable, air conditioned riverboat that will take you deep into the Amazon. Good food, new friends and a new world to explore.
Every day brings new sights and sounds as you go deeper into the maze of islands.
You will be stopping at small villages, visiting the local people, strolling through their gardens, visiting schools or enjoying a game of soccer.
You will enjoy seeing the most amazing colored birds, herons, wattled jacanas and horned screamers that will greet you daily. You’ll see many kinds of monkeys such as monk sakis, red howlers, saddle-backed tamarins and squirrel. they are everywhere!
The Amazon Rain Forest
The rain forest itself is lush with plant life is all different. From the seasonally flooded forest to the main course of the river.
The mighty Amazon, we will navigate many tributaries such as the Rio Ucayali into the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve. You will have lots of time to board skiffs for nighttime excursions to see nocturnal wildlife.
This is a wonderful outdoor classroom for your family. You need to bring the children and grandchildren to see this before it is gone.
I booked this trip of a lifetime for one of my clients, and when he returned, this is what he said:
