AMAZON RAINFOREST CRUISE DELFIN II OVERVIEW

The Delfin II Amazon Cruise offers you a wonderful chance to experience adventure with comfort and luxury in the Amazon River! You will admire, on a first-hand basis the impressive diversity of the flora and fauna of the Marañon and Ucayali River found in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, the largest extension of protected flooded forest in the world, and one of the primary intact swathes of rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon.

You can experience 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, 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 program with another one of our destination packages.
