If necessary, it is imperative to get your yellow fever vaccine at least ten days prior to departure.
Weather conditions in the Amazon rainforest vary greatly depending on the two seasons: the wet season from December to May and the dry season from June until November. Regardless of the season, you have to be prepared for rain throughout the year, although it rains a lot less during the dry season.
Both seasons provide amazing experiences with plenty of birds, wildlife and flora to see. If you prefer cruising and watching scenery and wildlife from the vessel then we recommend traveling during the wet season. If you prefer hiking through the jungle, then we recommend traveling during the dry season.
Itineraries are subject to change due to weather conditions at certain times of the year. With the change in river water levels the sailing hours may vary. Excursions may be modified at the discretion of the crew.
Visits to the local villages are carefully planned to avoid a negative impact in their cultural identity.
