Activities and Excursions

The R & F Amazonas navigates exclusively along the Amazon river, one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Passengers will enjoy an educational program at the Monkey Island Rescue Center, a sanctuary for monkeys commonly hunted for meat or to be sold as pets. Play with the tiny primates while learning how these animals are rescued, rehabilitated, and released back into the forest.
For an immersive experience, you can spend time in the some of the native tribes. Local chiefs will share the stories and history of their community. Watch cultural dance rituals, and maybe learn a few moves, or practice hunting with the Pucuna, a blowgun used by the natives. What’s more, a local shaman will visit the boat one evening to share part of his spiritual practices and traditional healing using medicinal plants. No matter the activity, Amazonian culture and natural beauty enrich each day. Due to climate, water level of the river, or migratory cycle of animals, activities are subject to change.
