M/V Aria, Amazon Cruise

M/V Aria, Amazon Cruise M/V Aria, Amazon Cruise

Every day you experience a different world of wildlife. You’re awoken by howler monkeys, you watch sloth in the sun, you’re lulled to sleep by rainforest sounds.

As your tiny boat glides quietly up the Amazonian tributary, you have the sensation that you’re entering unexplored territory. You scan the dark shadows on the banks on either side of you. Will the Amazon’s top predator, the black jaguar, be drinking at the waters edge? Your guide directs your gaze towards a sloth, perfectly camouflaged in its tree bough.

Back on the observation deck of the M/V Aria, you relate your experiences with fellow explorers. They didn’t spot a sloth, but they’ve seen any number of dazzling birds – macaws and parrots and even the rare Harpy eagle. After an excellent dinner, accompanied by sundowners and sunset over the Amazon, you’ll turn in and dream of more adventures on the morrow.

  • I do not think that we have ever had so much care and attention from a travel company, which just goes to show that (in a good way), you do get what you pay for.
