Famous Adventurer Joins Rainforest Cruises’ Amazon River Cruise

Delfin II - Delfin Amazon CruisesCelebrated explorer John Hemming is joining Peruvian riverboat Delfin II, bringing his tales of Amazon tribes to a five-day river cruise in February 2016.

Hemming, a world-renowned expert and best-selling author specialising in Amazon tribes and the Incan civilisation, is just one of the highlights of the four-night trip into the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, the world’s largest protected wetland.

The cruise along the Peruvian Amazon unveils the rainforest’s incredible diversity of wildlife, with passengers able to spy prehistoric looking iguanas, glimpse squirrel monkeys speeding through the tree tops, watch as pink dolphins tailgate the boat, spot a huge array of birds and hear the sounds made by an army of insects.

Along the way, guests can swim in a pristine lagoon, explore the shoreline by kayak, hope for a bite while fishing for piranha and meet local tribes people.

Delfin II is a luxury riverboat of just 14 elegant cabins with roof-to-floor windows for incredible river views. There are massage and exercise rooms and a lecture theatre, yet the boat is small enough to tour deep into the heart of the rainforest. Along the way, the vessel’s chef serves up delicious meals.

Rainforest Cruises is a boutique travel company specializing in Amazon River cruises and riverboat tours. The company is based in Florida, in the USA, and is fully licensed and bonded.
