    Charter flight from Lima to Iquitos

    Iquitos/Peru, departure 18.00 hrs

    Natural spectacles in the Garden of Eden
    The Amazon’s legendary reputation precedes it as one of our planet’s last, yet threatened, paradises. Its wonderful diversity, which must be protected, is far more overwhelming than any description can convey. How far will your impressive expedition take you? To be exact, 4,000 km (2,485 mi.) – from Iquitos in Peru to the mouth of the river at the Atlantic. The small BREMEN is perfect for exploring this incomparable ecosystem. Its shallow draught allows you to explore even the upper reaches of the Amazon, which could not be more diverse: over 40,000 identified plant species flourish in the Amazon and form the planet’s largest rainforest – we can only guess at the number of species yet to be discovered.

    Downstream on the Amazon with Zodiac landings (including Libertad, Leticia, Panelas, Rio Jutai, Cuxiu Muni)

    Depending on the weather conditions and currents, the Zodiacs will be in use over and over again, taking you down beautiful side branches to discover pristine natural beauty and hidden villages. Pay a visit to Libertad and the Yagua natives to gain fascinating insights while surrounded by manioc and pepper trees. The markets of Leticia also show life in harmony with nature – the scents and colours of spices and tropical fruits enchant the senses. Away from the hustle and bustle, some people are still said to live in complete isolation. Much more visible is the diverse animal kingdom, for example, in Panelas. Whether from the deck or from a Zodiac – this cruise constantly presents you with marvellous sights, for example, on the Rio Jutai. Here, the cries of parrots echo over the water from the orchid-covered jungle trees, providing musical accompaniment to the dance of countless butterfly species. On a night-time Zodiac ride through the rainforest of Cuxiu Muni, the flitting fireflies seem almost like stars fallen from the tropical night sky. The bright eyes of the caimans, which you might be lucky enough to spot in the darkness, provide another very special natural spectacle.

    Manaus/Brazil ( departure at midday)

    An Eldorado of fascinating contradictions
    The jungle metropolis of Manaus will show you the close relationship between nature and culture on the shores of the Amazon. This is where the past and present meet. The city’s history and opera house* bear witness to the time when this former centre of rubber made its fortune. On an aerial tour above Manaus*, these impressions will intensify as the jungle and city merge.

    Ride and Zodiac landings on the Rio Negro

    The famous Meeting of the Waters is a natural paintbox: the clay-yellow Rio Solimoes mixes with the “black” Rio Negro – water level permitting, the BREMEN will explore its riverbanks in particular detail. In this designated conservation area, you will ride out in the Zodiacs to get up-close to the wealth of flora and fauna. This continues in Pagodao, where the wildlife chorus heralds natural diversity.

    Sunday, 06.05.2018 to
    Tuesday, 08.05.2018

    Further downstream on the Amazon with Zodiac landings (including Canacari, Parintins, Alter do Chao, Guajara)

    Canacari will take your natural experiences to a very special level. With the Zodiacs, you will travel through floating water grass and past the world’s largest water lilies with leaves 3 m (10 ft) in diameter. At the middle point of the Amazon, Parintins is the epitome of flourishing city life. During the “Bumba-meu-boi”, dancers in colourful costumes are accompanied by intoxicating music as they tell the legend of the resurrection of a bull. Wonders of creation
    Around every bend, the Amazon seems to have something to surpass your previous experiences: for example, swim and bathe as though in the Caribbean on the fine white beach of Alter do Chao. Spend a few hours here doing absolutely nothing, and look forward to the diversity yet to be discovered. Exotic mammals call the Amazon home – including sloths, giant otters and water buffalo. One example is the pink dolphins, which might pop up around the Zodiac when you reach Guajara. Toucans, hummingbirds, macaws and hoatzins are just some of the bird species that will cause a real sensation.
