The incredible biodiversity and natural beauty of the upper Amazon has called out to explorers for centuries, and now you could discover its unique allure for yourself when you venture to the rainforests of Peru with Lindblad-National Geographic.
Your home during this Amazonian adventure is the inimitable, 28-guest Delfin II, a luxurious riverboat providing spacious air-conditioned comfort and five-star cuisine. The Delfin II boasts hardwood floors, rattan sofas, wooden-slat hammocks, and a graceful, modern design. The enthusiastic naturalists and expedition leader will set the informal tone for your expedition, and the vessel’s head chef will introduce you to Peru’s haute cuisine and local delicacies, all prepared with an Amazonian flair.
For an entire week the Delfin II will be your base as you explore the spectacular Pacaya-Samiria Reserve with seasoned Lindblad expedition leaders and local naturalists. As you glide along the Pucate River you will encounter one of the most naturally diverse regions in the world, with hundreds of species of birds, mammals, and reptiles. See three-toed sloths, piranhas, squirrel monkeys, tamarins, and white-throated toucans. Spot the telltale snort of a pink river dolphin as it glides through mysterious tannin-rich waters. The wildlife of the Amazon is remarkable in its abundance and staggering diversity. Each day you will set out in search of new creatures in this unique habitat.
