Amazon River Cruise

Travel with Portland Audubon on a once in a lifetime cruise down the Amazon River! The Amazonian region boasts more than 120 endemic species and is one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet – a true paradise! We’ll explore the region walking the tropical forests and exploring canals and lagoons by watercraft. Along the rivers we may encounter colorful macaws, parrots and caciques flying overhead, Horned Screamers rising from stream banks and other exotic wildlife that include the bizarre looking Hoatzins, Umbrellabirds, sloths, primates and so much more.

Our trip begins with a couple nights in Peru’s capital of Lima where we will spend a day visiting coastal estuaries and wetlands as well as exploring the historical buildings in the City of the Kings.  From Lima, we will travel to the Amazonian port city of Iquitos where we will board the W/H La Perla and begin our boat travel through the region’s system of rivers. This journey will give us an opportunity to truly enjoy the wildlife, surroundings, and towns that line the tributaries of the Amazon.

A special highlight of the cruise will be our visit to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, a vast area of Amazonian jungle and floodable forest in northeastern Peru bordered by the Marañón and Ucayali rivers. Known as the ‘jungle of mirrors,’ it is home to hundreds of bird species, Spider Monkeys, Pink River Dolphin, and incredible jungle flora, including 22 species of orchid!
