Exploring the Rainforest Deep Onboard an Amazon River Cruise

Clearly, the Amazon is an ideal destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. For others who are traveling to the Galapagos Islands or Machu Picchu, it’s a great option for combining with those equally amazing trips.

But whatever your motivation for traveling here, what better way to explore the impenetrable jungle than by cruising its waterways on board a riverboat? While lodge-based tours are definitely great experiences, a river cruise option allows you to travel deeper into this mysterious region, reaching farther into the less disturbed areas for experiences that are even more authentic.

Fortunately, Amazonian river cruising has evolved over time. So, forget the old image of the sputtering engine of a grimy jungle steamer lurching upriver in intolerable heat. Today, new and modern “floating boutique hotels” offer luxury accommodations, gourmet cuisine, mesmerizing itineraries, well-appointed leisure areas, and thoroughly knowledgeable guides.

While enjoying all the amenities and the spot-on services of one of these elegant riverboats, your cruise will introduce you to the ocean of green. Just picture yourself surrounded by Pink River dolphins, scarlet macaws, three-toed sloths, families of raucous Howler monkeys and so much more. And if wildlife encounters weren’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.

As all of these excursions can be physically draining, most of these riverboats feature onboard spas complemented with fine dining and sublimely comfortable beds. All this ensures that you’ll be refreshed, refueled and more than ready for your next day of exploring. In fact, river cruises into the jungle are now undertaken with such ease that they’re suitable for retired couples, families with children and travelers who are disabled.

The question you might be asking yourself, then, might be “which is the best Amazon cruise”? (though we at Surtrek always ask which is the best cruise ship for you). Reading reviews and descriptions of the available tour packages aren’t enough. We encourage you to give us a call or drop us a line, as we’ve been there many times, understand the region, have traveled on the riverboats, and possess the expertise to properly tailor your trip into the Amazon. All of this awaits for you to experience and explore. Make the first step and take a look at Surtrek’s selection of unmatchable Amazonian river-cruise experiences!
