Expedition in the purest sense - close encounters
Your great natural adventure extends over more than 4,000 km (2,485 mi.), right through the green lung of South America. Travelling close to the shore with the ship never ceases to offer fascinating panoramas. In the narrow tributaries where even these small, manoeuvrable expedition ships reach their limits, robust inflatable expedition boats (Zodiacs) will carry you further into the heart of your adventure. In small groups, you can immerse yourself in hidden paradises and marvel at exotic plants and creatures.
In this way, for example, you will reach the village of Libertad, home of the native Yagua, who will dazzle you with body paintings, traditional dances and insights into hunting with blowpipes. On spectacular Zodiac rides, you will explore the vegetation on the banks of the Rio Jutai, gliding past bromeliads with bright-red flowers and orchids. Macaws and toucans may suddenly pass by overhead, while brightly coloured butterflies flutter about the boat and, with luck, river dolphins pop up above the water. Behind the green curtain, constant rustling and cracking noises announce the presence of diverse wildlife, while the exotic scent of the plants will captivate your senses.
