Clearly, It is a place for nature lovers and adventure seekers. For others, it is a great option when considering what to combine Galapagos with (or even Machu Picchu). And what better way to explore the impenetrable jungle but by cruising its rivers? Programs based on lodges are definitely great experiences we recommend. However, this other option allows you to go in-depth and thus reach farther and thus more “undisturbed” regions. Fortunately for us, the concept of river cruising has been evolving; and will continue to do so in a more conscious and authentic way. So forget the old image of the jungle steamer whose engine sputters as the ship lurches upriver in intolerable heat. Now, new and modern “floating boutique hotels” offer luxury accommodations, gourmet cuisine, mesmerizing itineraries, well-appointed leisure areas, and thoroughly knowledgeable guides. It is hence, a tempting option for those concerned with issues such as Amazon for retired couples, children, or perhaps handicap traveler. But more importantly, this guarantees an authentic and insightful experience of the vast rainforest.
The question then is, which is the best Amazon cruise? We believe you should rather ask yourself, which is the best one FOR YOU. Now, reading reviews and descriptions of the available products aren’t enough. We encourage you to inquire us; we’ve been there and along with other areas of expertise – such as operational – we are able to properly tailor it. When we say expertise, we refer to being surrounded with specialists such as, savant biologists, pundit explorers and connoisseurs in authentic experiences. In this manner, we are able to design and craft your journey in every detail. As a result, we deliver you your own unique tour to the Amazon. Perhaps we can start by picturing yourself on some of the events you will be able to experience; so here we go.
While enjoying all the amenities and the spot-on services of one of these elegant riverboats, your cruise through the ocean of green will introduce you to Pink River dolphins, scarlet macaws, three-toed sloths, families of raucous Howler monkeys and so much more. You will not have to worry for shallow rivers; most cruises are equipped with motor canoes for an optimum exploration. And if wildlife encounters aren't enough, you'll also visit indigenous villages deep in the heart of the rainforest where few outsiders venture. Indulge your curiosity and expand your understanding as you navigate downriver on a custom-designed 5-star vessel through some of the most astonishingly bio-diverse landscapes in the world. Now, all these excursions can be physically tiring. Most of the riverboats feature onboard spas. Complement it with fine dining, very comfortable beds and your insatiable curiosity, you will be more than ready for your next exploration.
Much more awaits you to be explored. We have selected the best Amazon cruises available for you. We have not only seen them but been on them. Based on our criteria (which is very strict, by the way), we present to you SURTREK’s selection of unmatchable Amazonian Experience.
