)-- Dreaming of a green getaway for the holidays? Years of experience exploring the Amazon allows GreenTracks to offer you a unique cruise experience. The GreenTracks Amazon Cruise is an ecotour adventure. There will be several excursions daily off the riverboat, led by GreenTracks-trained, bilingual Naturalist Guides. Using small excursion boats you will explore the creeks and oxbow lakes in search of wildlife. After dark you will do the same in search of caiman and colorful frogs. There will also be hikes on rainforest trails in search of interesting animals, multicolored butterflies, bizarre insects, exotic flowers and gigantic trees. Ethnobotany (use of plants by people) will be explained by your guides.
The Amazon riverboat has plenty of room to spread out and relax. Each cabin is air conditioned and has private bath & shower. There is an enclosed air-conditioned dining room and an outdoor bar area. Meals of both international and regional cuisine are served buffet-style in the air-conditioned dining room. Freshly caught fish is deliciously prepared by our chef and is always a big hit with the passengers. Beautifully presented salads are part of each lunch and dinner. Exotic rainforest fruits are available for snacks and juices.
This seven day/six night trip departs Iquitos, Peru on December 21, 2008. The cost of the trip is $2285 per person in a twin cabin. Group size is always small, typically 8 - 12 people. A GreenTracks eco-adventure cruise is fun, stimulating and educational. With over 16 years of operation GreenTracks has provided memorable experiences of the Amazon to thousands of travelers.
