the amazon's fantastic size has bewildered the minds of many adventurers and explorers, giving rise to as many myths and legends, including those of giant sloth and amorous dolphins. fantastic plans to dominate and profit from this natural wonder, from henry ford's attempts to tame the wild rubber trees to brazil's finance minister delfini neto's attempts to pay off the countries' foreign debt through profit from the amazon, have all ended in failure, and have given this mystical and steaming green land the alternative title of "green hell."

a great way to experience the rainforest is by living in it. eco lodges provide this unique opportunity, with an array of options depending on how wild or "uncivilized" you want to be. some eco lodges come fully equipped with pools, air conditioning and telephones. others are closer to the ground, both literally and figuratively, and give you a sense of the immensity of the jungle- heat, humidity, mosquitoes, and all.

voyage to the heart of the amazon is different from all other cruises offered in the amazon, it is an “expedition cruise”. our small groups explore far into the forest where we are able to see creatures that are hidden to other visitors. we explore some of the most untouched rainforest in all of the amazon. our expedition cruise is the only vessel that explores far into the world’s largest amazon reserve: the central amazon conservation complex. this reserve is a unesco natural world heritage site and encompasses tens of thousands of square miles of uninhabited wilderness. within these trackless forests live still the creatures that have made the amazon the object of myth and legend. because of the exploratory nature, the small size of the groups, and especially our skilled guides, our expedition cruises enable travelers to experience the rainforest in the most detailed and authentic way possible.  note: this is a tour extension, combine this cruise with one of our full package tours.

named after female warriors of greek mythology, the amazon is itself a place of near mythical status. what traveler drawn to the wild places of the planet hasn't imagined a trip to the amazon, not only to admire the towering trees, secretive wildlife and awesome river, but to enter, in a real sense, the very life spring of the planet? expecting a discovery channel–like experience (jaguars in every tree, anacondas on every shore) is a recipe for disappointment. in fact, the amazon’s quintessential experiences are more sublime than superlative: canoeing through a flooded forest, dozing in a hammock on a boat chugging upriver, waking to the otherworldly cry of howler monkeys. on a river whose size is legendary, it’s actually the little things that make it special. give it some time, and the amazon is all this and more.
