Embark on a journey to one of the world’s vastly unexplored regions, the mighty Amazon. Peru’s Amazon Basin covers an area larger than Western Europe – it is where biodiversity is at its greatest and the rainforest is at its most incredible with thousands of indigenous plants and animals calling this jungle paradise home.
Imagine venturing deep into the Amazon jungle in search of elusive wildlife, before returning to an air-conditioned suite, hot shower, and an over-sized plush bed. Now you can on one of the region’s most luxurious small ships – the Delfin III. Each of the 44 guests aboard will enjoy fine wine and regionally inspired cuisine in all-inclusive comfort equivalent to a 5-star boutique hotel.
Exploring the Peruvian Amazon begins in Iquitos, a remote Peruvian city that can only be reached by air or water. Highlights of this lively city include a building designed by Gustav Eiffel in the main square.
This pristine wilderness spans more than five million acres and is teeming with the Amazon’s wildlife and plant life, making it one of the most biodiverse spots in the world.
