EXCLUSIVE AMAZON RIVER CRUISE TOUR OVERVIEW

The ARIA Amazon River Cruise invites you to explore the Peruvian Amazon in the utmost comfort. It is spacious yet intimate enough to feel exclusive. This Amazon Cruise incorporates extremely generous dining and lounging areas including an outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the Amazon’s river views.  The highly experienced cruise ship captain, his crew and the cruise ship high standards service ensure a smooth travel and safety on the waters of the Amazon.

Following, you’ll find two itineraries, each one contemplates various stops and visits according to the season you pick: There is a High Water Season and a Low Water Season.

HIGH WATER SEASON ITINERARY

(December – May)

DAY 1

Iquitos – Amazon River
As soon as you board the cruise, you will find the ARIA Amazon River Cruise’s low-key luxury, comfortable and safe. Settle in your spacious suite, while the ship starts moving, yet we strongly recommend you to go to the Upper deck to admire the great views while the vessel leaves Iquitos behind.

Over the next three days, you will sail in the great Amazonas River and its two largest tributaries, the Ucayali and the Marañón River. A spectacular experience lived by very few, even for the most experienced world travelers.

Presentation and Briefing Talk
Before dinner we will perform a routine safety drill, then you may go to the air-conditioned lounge, and have your briefing talk about your next day’s Amazon adventure. You will meet our naturalist guides and your cruise director, who will use video, photos, and maps to show you the details of your journey deep into Peru’s Amazon.

Welcome Dinner
A toast to the beginning of this beautiful journey, enjoy the innovative Amazonian cuisine, created by a recognized Cheff, with some South American wine. The menu always offers varied choices, including a vegetarian option.
Perhaps sip a nightcap on the Upper Deck, under the stars, before retiring.

DAY 2

Amazon – Yacapana – Yarapa – Clavero Lake

Yacapana Islands Exploration and Dolphin watching
Yacapana or The Islands of the Iguana, because of the abundant presence of these reptiles in the islands. Amazonian folklore protects these small reptiles through the belief that if you touch one you will turn into one!

We will also see the famous pink dolphins, so rare and enigmatic, that Amazonian legends tell they were once handsome siblings turned into dolphins.
We will also pass close to lush islands, giving you the opportunity to take good pictures of the tropical flora and fauna.

Return to the ARIA Amazon River Cruise.

Yarapa River Exploration and Fishing in Moringo Lake
After breakfast, you will board a comfortable skiff to sail from the Amazon River to the Yarapa River. Life jackets, ponchos, rubber boots, and purified water are always available in our private boats. As you sail down the Yarapa, you might encounter fishermen in their canoes. Keep your binoculars ready to spot terns, tropical songbirds, black collared hawks and sloths.

In Lake Moringo, you can try catching ferocious piranhas with your hooks and other fish. Meanwhile, naturalist guides will tell you about the story of the lake and its inhabitants.

Once back in the ARIA Amazon River Cruise, you will find towels to dry up, and as the ship continues down the Amazon River, you will have free time to rest before lunch.

After lunch, you may enjoy a lecture in the lounge by our naturalist guides.

Canoeing and swimming at Lake Clavero
Lake Clavero calm waters are ideal for a refreshing swim, while you watch villagers paddle in their traditional dugout canoes. Afterwards, you’ll visit the community, to meet the dwellers whom will joyfully welcome you.

Back on the ship, before dinner, you can take a sip of a classic Pisco Sour,
on the Upper Deck while watching the majestic sunset.

DAY 3

Ucayali – Yanallpa – Dorado Rivers – Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve

Ucayali River Expedition
In the morning, you’ll get on skiffs and row your way into the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, to admire the black water stream, part of the enormous Amazon flooded Forest. Your guides will explain as we explore what scientists call a “gallery forest,” because of its dense vegetation creating a tunnel of leaves. As we explore, look out for Parrots, Macaws, and fluffy Monk Saki monkeys.

On our return to the ARIA Amazon River Cruise you can join an optional cooking class.

After lunch, you can have a well-deserved siesta or listen to a lecture by one of our naturalist guides.

Dorado River Exploration and Night Excursion
During the afternoon you’ll go on a rather exceptional journey through the “Jungle of the Mirrors,” where the gigantic trees reflected in the dark river produce a sensational mirroring effect. Continue in the Dorado River where you’ll find colorful parrots, macaws and a variety of monkeys.

On the way back to the Amazon River Cruise, you may spot alligators, frogs and fishing bats.

As you dine, we will sail upstream, toward The Amazon River Mouth, where the Ucayali and Marañón River merge.

BLD

DAY 4

Amazon River Mouth – Puerto Miguel Village – Iquitos

On your last day at the Amazon Cruise, you’ll get up early to witness a wonderful vision of the sun rising over the origin of the Amazon River and the fantastic waterfalls formed between the two major rivers, Ucayali and Marañon, with a unique musical background of bird singing, as you glide in our rowboats past large-billed terns, laughing falcons, exotic short-tailed parrot, and dozens of other vibrantly hued birds.

You will travel by rowboat to Puerto Miguel community located on the shores of the Marañon River, where you will meet the locals in this remote part of the world and learn about their traditions and folklore. You can support them by acquiring handicrafts directly from the artisans.

Back in the ship, you’ll have a light lunch.

Disembarkation / Manatee Rescue Center / Transfer to the Airport
In the afternoon, you will visit the Manatee Rescue Center, similar to a home for Amazonian rescued manatees, to rehabilitate and release them back into the wild. Later, you’ll stop at the San Juan Indigenous Market where you can shop for local crafts before leaving.

Your Guides will help you with the check-in at the airport and stay with you until you board your flight back to Lima.
