For millennia, the Amazon has been reluctant to reveal its secrets to outsiders; to this day, science still can’t fully explain the staggering biodiversity of this lush tropical forest and the vast network of tributaries that feeds it. Curious? Come along with us and go deeper into the jungle than you’d ever get on your own.

Shore excursions offer a deeper glimpse of life along the river. Seek out rare wildlife—including sloths, toucans and pink dolphins—and push deeper into the jungle on guided nature hikes.
