Steppes Travel offers an exciting choice of Amazon cruises in Brazil, Ecuador's Yasuni National Park and on the upper reaches of the Amazon in Peru. We also offer a wide choice of Amazon boats, ranging from the comfortable to the very luxurious MV Aqua, Delfin and Anakonda, allowing you to explore with no compromise on comfort.
The mightiest river of all and an iconic ‘must see’ destination, the Amazon plays host to one of the world’s most impressive collections of fauna and flora. Lying on the equator, the Amazon can be visited throughout the year, however the river’s annual fluctuations provide interesting seasonal variation when it rises by up to nine metres.
Travelling by small boat is the ideal way to explore this watery wilderness. Take advantage of daily guided excursions that get you off the beaten track, exploring the forest, different habitats, tributaries and local communities.
