Amazon Cruises

Just announced: WWF expert guides to join May, June & October cruises.

  • Look for blue-and-yellow macaws during sunrise skiff rides along the banks of the Amazon.

  • The WWF-supported Pacaya Samiria Reserve is teeming with wildlife, including yellow-spotted turtles.

  • Naturalist guides will teach you about the famous pink river dolphin.

  • Named in honor of a British queen, the Victoria water lily of the Amazon can grow to nearly 10 feet in diameter.

  • Keep an eye out for flamboyantly plumed hoatzins.

From the sky, the Amazon looks like a lush, green blanket stretching as far as the eye can see, with silver ribbons snaking across it. But on the ground, the world’s largest rain forest and its rivers comprise a complex realm where even the teeniest insect, seemingly invasive vine and inhibited bird all serve important roles.
