Traveling Along the Amazon

A visit to the legendary Amazon River is an item on many traveler’s bucket lists. Thinking about the Amazon conjures up images of lush rainforests and fascinating wildlife.

One of the best ways to explore the Amazon is on a river cruise. On a cruise you will get to stop at beautiful little villages along the voyage where you can meet the locals.

Aboard many river cruise ships will be naturalists or biologists who will lead excursions. These specialists have an extensive knowledge of the diversity of plants and animals that surround the Amazon.

Excursions on land will allow you to experience the dense, tropical forests of the Amazon and possibly catch sight of some wildlife.
