- Feel, live and touch the Amazon
Far removed from your daily concerns, feel the warmth of the Amazonian air caressing your skin as you breathe in the scents of your jungle surrounds on this unforgettable cruise.
Showcasing an incredibly rich eco-diversity and preserving the ecosystems of the Omagua region, the Pacaya Samiria Natural Reserve is the largest reserve in Peru and the spectacular backdrop to your journey. Marvel at a landscape of lush beauty, irrigated by the mighty Amazon River, from the comfort of your moving hotel.
To be joined in 2015 by a second vessel, the M/V Amatista is a vintage-designed boat designed exclusively for cruising the Amazon. Travel in time as well as space aboard the 35-metre-long ship which, as well as its historical appeal, also boasts its share of comforts and amenities.
Featuring 15 air-conditioned cabins with eight on the lower deck and seven on the upper deck, the vessel accommodates a maximum of 31 passengers. Each room is decked in an elegantly classic style, with wood veneer and ensuite bathrooms. Guests also enjoy the covered dining room with bar and the sun-deck with 360-degree panoramic views.
Keep your eyes open for the beautiful Amazon River dolphin. Light grey or pink in colour these friendly and legendary creatures amaze onlookers as they surface for air often displaying spectacular acrobatics. In jungle communities, they are the characters of myths and legends from the oral tradition – an inspiring sight. Experience an unforgettable expedition of bird-watching, trekking, photo safaris, marine and other wildlife spotting on this once-in-a-lifetime expedition.
