There is no more rewarding journey into nature than one along the Amazon River.

By journeying into earth's largest rainforest you will have the opportunity to uncover majestic landscapes, indigenous wildlife and incredible cultures that have remained hidden from the wider world for millennia and are only accessible on a boat.

You will undertake this awe-inspiring journey aboard Aqua Nera, a ship setting a new standard for luxury river cruising on the Amazon. The design of Aqua Nera is inspired by the Amazon’s idyllic backwater lagoons and conveys a sense of contemporary style and Amazonian tranquillity in every suite, deck and social space.

Take a guided tour of Nauta Town and discover authentic Amazonian produce in the local market. In the afternoon you will witness one of the world’s greatest spectacles - the birthplace of the Amazon River.
After early morning bird watching you will enjoy breakfast in the middle of the jungle with the sounds of incredible wildlife all around you. Later, swim, canoe or kayak in Yanayacu-Pucate River as you seek the legendary pink river dolphins.

Undertake a fascinating walk through the firm soil forest of Casual on a search for flora and fauna including medicinal trees, insects and poison dart frogs. At night you can use a hi-tech telescope to identify the glittering stars.
Arrive back in Iquitos and disembark Aqua Nera. Before making your way to the airport you will visit the Manatee Rescue Center, where orphaned Amazonian manatees are rehabilitated before being released back into the wild.
