AMAZON RIVER CRUISE – DELFIN I OVERVIEW

The Delfin I Luxury Amazon River Cruise offers you a complete experience of the thrill to discover the Amazon Rainforest with elegance and comfort. You will enjoy the best of the flora and fauna of the Marañon and Ucayali River in the Pacaya Samiria flooded forest (the largest in the world) and explore further by engaging in various activities: kayaking or paddle boarding in peaceful creeks and lakes; perhaps swimming with pink river dolphins or fishing piranhas!

More of the land type, then, maybe birdwatching, canopy-walking, hiking trails, or visiting native communities (all optional).

During the rainy season in the Andes, water levels rise in the Amazon River, flooding 85% of the reserve and making it only accessible by boat.

Please do not hesitate to Contact Us if you have questions or if you’d like to pair this Amazon cruise with another one of our destination packages.
