The Peruvian Amazon is home to some of the most pristine rainforest in the world. The immense biodiversity of this fascinating part of Peru provides endless opportunities for wildlife spotting, rainforest treks and riverboat cruises. Defined in two parts, the northern Amazon Basin and the southern Amazon Basin, each destination offers its own allure, yet both offer the fantastic opportunity to explore, discover and reconnect with one of the world’s most magnificent natural wonders – the Amazon rainforest.
The more remote, yet easily accessible, region of the northern Amazon Basin can be accessed via Iquitos. While exceptional treks within the rainforest are undoubtedly a highlight, this spectacular area is renowned for its exceptional boat cruises along the mammoth Amazon River that snakes its way through impenetrable emerald jungles, to neighbouring Brazil, before entering the Atlantic Ocean. Exclusive boat cruises along secluded stretches of the Amazon River introduce explorers to an incredible diversity of animals and birdlife that live along or within this breathtaking life-force.
