When thinking about the best way to experience South America, the Amazon Rainforest is one of the first destinations to spring to mind. Falling within the borders of Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, and Suriname; the Amazon Rainforest covers a huge expanse and is often regarded as the “world’s lungs”. It is home to 390 billion individual trees and represents over half of the world’s remaining rainforest areas. One in ten known species lives within the Amazon Rainforest, providing a home to the largest collection of living plants and animal species in the world.
You can experience this stunning natural beauty for yourself by embarking on a cruise along the Amazon River. Flowing through five South American countries; the Amazon River provides a unique insight into an area which is generally inaccessible by any other means of transport. Along each journey, you can expect to see a range of wildlife that includes macaws, piranhas, toucans, jaguars, and much more.
