Join us on a fantastic journey experiencing the natural history and cultural highlights of the largest wilderness in Earth, the Amazon.Traverse the Peruvian Amazon on board the fine Estrella Amazonica, with top local naturalists in this epic nature journey offered jointly with International Expeditions, world leader in nature travel.
It is the largest wilderness on Earth, divided by the mightiest river. A vast ecosystem supporting the highest diversity of living things. Birds and butterflies, as well as a fascinating array of primates, fishes, aquatic mammals and top predators such as jaguar, caiman and anaconda all mingle in a land known simply as The Amazon. From its first trickle high in the Andes, the Amazon River winds down for 4,200 miles past mountains, rainforest, plains, and cities and remote villages in six countries before spilling 500 billion cubic feet of fresh water into the Atlantic. The rainforest of the Amazon generates around 20% of the world’s oxygen, absorbing carbon dioxide and making this a vital ecosystem for the balance of the Planet.
Far South Expeditions has joined forces with International Expeditions, World Leader in Nature Travel, to set up this special departure aimed to offer an unforgettable journey to the heart of one of the regions with the greatest biodiversity in the world: the Peruvian Amazon. We are very proud of this partnership as for over three decades, International Expeditions has endeavored to promote an understanding of and appreciation for the Amazon all while working to preserve the rainforest and provide its inhabitants with a reason to do the same.
