Northern Amazon

Discover the iconic Northern Amazon

The northern Amazon Basin can be accessed via Iquitos. 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.

Travellers to the region are offered the unrivalled opportunity to encounter a multitude of exquisite wildlife and engage with the Amazon’s indigenous inhabitants. While exceptional treks within the rainforest are undoubtedly a highlight, the attraction of the northern Amazon Basin lies in its unrivalled water excursions.

Exclusive boat cruises along secluded stretches of the Amazon River introduce visitors to the incredible diversity of animals and birdlife that live along or within this breathtaking life-force.
