The Amazon in Peru
Nothing evokes images of a deep, lush jungle alive with the sounds of birds cawing alongside howling monkeys and the rustle of leaves as the Amazon. The Peruvian part of this great rainforest does not disappoint, and nature lovers should not miss an opportunity to experience this magical world.

Amazon Highlights:

Jungle Excursions
Tours into the jungle vary from two days to a week. After traveling by boat down the river, visitors stay in comfortable jungle lodges. Activities include the opportunity to see birds and monkey, go on evening treks to spot nocturnal creatures, and a chance to mingle with indigenous people.

River Cruises
An alternative to lodging in the jungle is the option of living on a well-appointed boat and crusing down the Amazonian river. Boats have air-conditioned cabins with private bathrooms and a knowledgeable naturalist guide. The guide will point out the river creatures and birds passing by, and stops include visits to port towns in neighboring Brazil and Columbia.

Floating down the famed Amazon river, in first class accommodations on an historic vessel is an experience like no other.

You'll have the chance to traipse through the jungle, examining unique flora and looking for a variety of exciting mammals. You'll see tropical birds that exist nowhere else in the world, and navigate pristine lakes and look for fresh-water dolphins swimming alongside the boat. You'll have the chance to spot monkeys from a canopy walk, and see caiman crawling in the mud.
