Luxury small ship river cruises in Asia




The Amazon is now recognised as the longest river in the world, just beating the Nile by a few kilometres (though this is still much debated!). She certainly has the highest discharge in the world at 219,000 cubic meters per second flowing into the southern Atlantic. With her main tributaries she flows through no fewer than seven countries: Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Guyana. In Brazil the river discharges through a 200km-wide mouth. There can be no doubt this is the greatest river system in the world with an extraordinary variety of ecology and environmental conditions.

The river is navigable on sea-going ships for 1000km as far as Manaus and there are several areas of specialist river expedition in different Amazonian countries. We are currently sailing in Brazil out of Santarem on the Amazon Dream and have plans for further expeditions in Ecuador and Peru.
