Peru Amazon Rainforest Cruises
Many do not realize that Peru is home to the start of the Amazon River, and the eastern half of Peru is covered in Amazon Rainforest. All Peru Amazon cruises begin and end in Iquitos or Nauta, both cities located in the northeast of Peru, at the edge of the Amazon Rainforest
Peru river cruises along Amazon River tributaries take you into a corner of the Amazon Rainforest that has not been explored much. There is a bounty of flora and fauna in this region, especially in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. While aboard an Iquitos Peru cruise, you may spot pink river dolphins, giant otters, monkeys, caiman, sloths, hoatzin, and many species of birds. From Iquitos, it is possible to cruise down the Amazon River, past Manaus, all the way to Belem, the Atlantic coast.Customize your Peru Amazon River Cruises
If you're interested in a Peru Amazon River Cruise, contact us and we'll arrange a complete, personalized tour of the Peruvian Amazon, including a river boat cruise departing from Iquitos, and a tour of any other destinations in Peru. For example, we highly recommend combining an Iquitos River cruise with an excursion to Machu Picchu.
We can also arrange pre- and post- Peru cruises that dock in Callao, the port of Lima. If you are taking a cruise to Peru, we can pick you up in Callao, Lima, and arrange tours of the city or tours to Machu Picchu.
