Luxury Travel to the Amazon
The Amazon’s 16,000 species of trees represent more than 50 percent of the earth’s rain forests. Reaching into parts of Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil, Amazon travel is a great tie in with a journey into other parts of these countries. Live in rhythm with nature while you become acquainted with the locals, experts, and fantastic flora and fauna on luxury Amazon tours on land and by river.

- Cruise on a luxurious riverboat, exploring Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, fishing for piranha, and watching for monkeys, three-toed sloths, and caimans.
- In the Ecuadorian Amazon, visit local communities, learn about medicinal plants, and glide on the Napo River by dugout canoe.
