Amazon River Cruises - Avalon Waterways
Embark on a journey to one of the world's vastly unexplored regions, the mighty Amazon. Experience the Amazon wilderness where it originates in Peru. The Amazon Basin covers an area larger than Western Europe, but it's in Peru's Amazon where biodiversity is at its greatest and the rainforest is untamed. Avalon Waterways’ Amazon River itineraries typically provide guests with more time aboard their ship – as the focus is often on the river itself – but shore-side trips are immensely rewarding. For example, Amazon tours might include bird-watching expeditions, rainforest hikes and guided tours of jungle villages.
Imagine venturing deep into the Amazon jungle in search of unique wildlife, taking a swim with pink dolphins and visiting native communities, all while returning to an air-conditioned suite, hot shower and an over-sized plush bed every evening. Now you can on one of the world's most luxurious small ships from Avalon Waterways. Each of the lucky guests aboard Avalon Waterways’ river ships enjoys fine wines and tasty cuisine while surrounded by comforts equivalent to a five-star hotel.
When you aren’t sailing along the Amazon, you could be exploring the ruins of Machu Picchu or hiking the Sacred Valley near Cusco. Or take some time to get acquainted with the locals in Lima, Peru, the typical start and end point for Avalon Waterways’ Amazonian adventures.
