Explore Peru’s breathtaking Amazon River in true luxury with Aqua Expeditions. Travel deep into the rainforest in exceptional comfort and style for the ultimate Amazonian adventure. An Aqua Expeditions cruise will appeal to discerning travellers looking for an intimate and unforgettable experience, in one of the world’s most wild and untouched regions.
Aqua Expeditions offers three, four and seven-night itineraries and a choice of two luxury cruise boats, both custom built by a renowned Peruvian architect. Superb facilities on each boat include a bar, observation desk, outdoor lounge and Jacuzzi.
The M/V Aqua is 40-metres long and accommodates up to 24 passengers in 12 suites. Interconnecting rooms are available for families and children aged seven and over are welcomed on board. The M/V Aria is 45-metres long and can accommodate up to 32 passengers in 16 suites. Because of their size, these boats can reach areas that bigger cruise boats can’t.
All suites on both boats are oversized and very stylish, featuring separate sitting areas, king-size beds, ensuite bathrooms and huge windows with panoramic views of the river.
Aqua Expeditions offers a first class dining experience. Enjoy fine dining with a delectable menu of Peruvian and international gourmet dishes, accompanied by South American fine wines.
Experience the Amazonian treasure trove of history, indigenous wildlife and spectacular beauty led by superb guides. Enjoy close encounters with an incredible array of wildlife from three-toed sloths to pink dolphins, stroll along sandy beaches, try your hand at piranha fishing or head out on a jungle night trip.
Back on board sip Pisco Sours in the outdoor lounge as you enjoy the views, relax in the Jacuzzi or listen to a nature talk.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate the Amazon into a greater Peru & Latin America holiday. Take a look at Classic Machu Picchu as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
