Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip, guide and crew gratuities, items of a personal nature (ie, bar and boutique purchases), and optional travel insurance.
Physical Requirements
This trip does not require a high degree of physical fitness, as much of our wildlife viewing is done from small motorized skiffs. Getting in and out of the skiffs can sometimes feel a bit unsteady, especially with the current of the river. Some excursions involve walking on nature trails through the rain forest. Guests should be able to walk 1-2 miles in high humidity over uneven ground with overgrown roots, in order to participate in all excursions. Walking on muddy trails or through standing water may be necessary at times. Guests are not required to participate in all activities.

Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
The cruise begins and ends in Iquitos, Peru.

Some twenty international airlines serve Lima, Peru’s Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM). Flights to Lima leave daily from major gateway cities in the United States and Europe, as well as around the world. Guests traveling directly onward to board the Aqua or the Aria will change planes at Lima airport for the daily one hour 25 minutes air flight into Iquitos, Peru.

Travelers bound for an Aqua Expeditions luxury river cruise will need to fly in and out of Iquitos, Peru’s Coronel FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta International Airport (IQT). We recommend doing so on a LAN Perú flight as Aqua Expeditions airport transfers are only included if arriving or departing on these recommended flights.

We allow you to bring as much luggage as you like, but suggest the use of soft suitcases/bags for easy storage. How much you bring, however, may be determined by the airlines, which have limits on both checked and carry-on baggage. LAN for example, allows 23 kilos (50 pounds) of checked luggage and 8 kilos (17 pounds) of carry-on baggage in Economy Class.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
