We followed the Galapagos Archipelago with a stunning 5 days with Aqua Expeditions in the upper reaches of the Peruvian Amazon jungle and eco-system. Cruising on the Aqua houseboat, the Aria and negotiating the tributaries, creeks and backwaters on powerful skiffs, we were treated to an unique wilderness experience, a variety of remarkable adventures and acclaimed local cuisine.
Travelling far into the depths of the Amazon’s rainforests, we were able to get an interesting glimpse of the Amazon wildlife, indigenous villages, local customs and river and jungle landscapes. Surrounded by many species of Peruvian birds calling from their leafy canopies and watching squirrel and howler monkeys swinging in the tree tops and three-toed sloths hanging from the branches was a daily appeal. Our group will never forget the piranha fishing, anaconda capture, swimming and kayaking in the Amazon – and those special sunsets…!
