Release your inner explorer on the Amazon, one of the world’s most famous rivers; at a staggering 6,992km makes it the longest river on Earth! The Amazon and its tributaries flow through 6 South American countries (Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil) before emptying in to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Amazon River is renowned for its spectacular flora and fauna, and is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. On an Amazon journey, you will also get the chance to meet local tribes that thrive on the river, who have been barely touched by Western civilisation – photographers will have an amazing experience taking candid shots of these tribes who have continued their way of life for centuries without disruption.
Combine your Amazonian adventure with stays in Lima, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and even Iguassu Falls to create a spectacular once in a lifetime voyage you will never forget!
Snaking its way through most of North America, the Mississippi river is one of the world’s major river systems in size, habitat diversity and biological productivity.

Take a trip on a traditional paddle boat as you sail past old colonial buildings and plantations perched next to the river. The fabric of these regions is brought to life through delicious regional cuisine, customised and intriguing shore excursions and on board historians to delve in to the history of America and its first settlers.
