Amazon Clipper Extension
For the ultimate experience of Brazil, add this cruise through the legendary Amazon Basin. The greatest river on earth, the Amazon carries 1/5 of all fresh water on earth as it flows more than 4,000 miles from its headwaters in the Andes to the Atlantic. Our deluxe riverboat takes us into the heart of the world’s largest rainforest, a World Heritage Site unparalleled in size, beauty and biodiversity. Via morning and nighttime excursions by canoe and on foot, we encounter the wonders of the jungle at intimate range, looking for monkeys, sloths and parrots above, pink river dolphins and giant water lilies below.
- Watch birds and spot wildlife on a dawn canoe excursion in Januaca Lake
- Walk through the rainforest to an indigenous village to meet local people and learn about their traditions
- Witness the amazing “Meeting of the Waters,” where the Amazon and Rio Negro meet in a stark contrast of black and white water
