Amazon tours and Amazon cruises on the upper Amazon River and its
tributaries from Iquitos, Peru. Study rain forest flora and fauna. Add
over 100 tropical birds to your list bird watching. Watch for pink
dolphins. Catch the fiercest freshwater fighters on the planet, peacock
bass. Or just get away from it all with a jungle walk in the middle of the
