Come along on this amazing journey by International Expeditions as they take you into  the wild Amazon.  With 28 years of exploring, they have been adapting to all the changes and will give you the best this part of the world has to offer.  You can still walk amid the protected forest and discover the mystic rainforest.

La Amatista

La Amatista

Start your journey in Iquitos,  Peru.  A city of 600,000 with no roads or highways to the outside world-only air and water.  Here is where you will board La Amatista, your home for 7 nights.  She is a charming , comfortable, air conditioned riverboat that will take you deep into the Amazon.      Good food, new friends and a new world to  explore.                                

          Every day brings new sights and sounds as you go deeper into the maze of islands.  The rivers teem with fish, rare giant river otters, black caimans, manatees and gray and pink dolphins. 
      
Stopping at small villages and visit the local people, stroll through their gardens, visit schools or enjoy a game of soccer.   The most amazing colored birds, herons, wattled jacanas and horned screamers greet us daily.  Many kinds of monkeys such as monk sakis, red howlers, saddle-backed tamarins and squirrel are everywhere.   
Rain forest

Rain forest

The  rainforest itself is lush with plant life is all different.  From the seasonally flooded forest to the main course of the river. 

Besides the mighty Amazon, we will navigate many tributaries such as the Rio Ucayali into the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve.  We have lots of time to board our skiffs for nighttime excursions to see nocturnal wildlife.
This is a wonderful outdoor classroom for your family.  Bring the children and grandchildren to see this before it is gone forever.
