7 Nights Aria Amazon Cruise
We highly recommend our 7-night Amazon River Expedition Cruise on the Aria Amazon where you may experience our most luxurious and comprehensive Amazon journey among the Amazon River’s two powerful tributaries: the Marañon and the Ucayali, as well as several hidden black water lakes.
Kayak, canoe and swim in these unspoiled black waters, keeping eyes peeled for the Amazon’s legendary pink dolphins. Be witness of one of the great spectacles of the Southern Hemisphere, the birth of the Amazon River. Take a short jungle walk in the San Jose flooded forest and see the unforgettable giant water lilies. Search for three-toed sloths, toucans, macaws then meet taricaya turtles in their natural habitat. Enjoy a breakfast picnic accompanied by jungle symphony and fishing along the black waters of the Pacaya River. As the Aria Amazon journeys towards the union of the Ucayali and the Marañon Rivers, considered the birthplace of the Amazon, learn from our experienced, expert naturalist guides about the diverse Amazon wildlife and birds of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.
The low water season in Amazonia coincides with our winter in the Southern Hemisphere (from June to October). Trails and jungle paths that are flooded from November to May are now easily accessible, allowing groups to explore deep in the jungle (accompanied by fewer mosquitoes than during the high water season). During these months fishing is 100 percent guaranteed. You even stand a fair chance of catching a piranha. And while the lower river levels mean that you are farther from the birds that roost in the jungle canopy, you will have the chance to see dozens of species of migratory birds in flight, something you would completely miss during the high water season.
