Originating in Peru, the Amazon River is a world of mystery, grandeur and romance. Its towering forest and rushing waters harbor such an incomparable diversity of life that scientists are still working to classify it all:
• 2,000 species of fish, more than those in the Atlantic Ocean.
• 4,000 species of birds, including 120 hummingbirds.
• 60 species of reptiles such as the caiman and anaconda, the world´s largest non-poisonous snake.
• Mammals like the marmoset, anteater, tapir, capybara and pink dolphin.
At its widest point in Brazil, the mighty Amazon River is 40 miles wide allowing oceangoing vessels to sail the 2.300 mile distance from the Atlantic Ocean upriver to Iquitos, Peru`s major port on the Upper Amazon.
The Amazon River is arguably the largest river in the world rivaled only by the mighty Nile in Africa. Its headwaters in South America originate in Peru where it consists of a series of major river systems that flow North and South into the Marañón and Ucayali (major Amazon River tributaries) and on into the Amazon.
At its widest point, the river 7 miles wide during the low water season, but during the high water season, when the Amazon floods the surrounding plains, the river can reach up to 28 miles in breadth.
Luxury must be comfortable is the R&F Amazonas motto.

VISITS LIMA, IQUITOS AND THE AMAZON
Our 6-Day / 5-Night Peruvian Amazon Digital Detox Voyage takes you from the bustling city of Lima to the Peruvian port city of Iquitos, gateway to the jungle lodges, cruises and tribal villages of the northern Amazon. In the historic center, the Main Square (Plaza de Armas) is surrounded by European-influenced buildings dating to the region's turn-of-the-20th-century boom in rubber production. Journey to the dock for the short skiff ride to your floating luxury home for the next 4 nights.
Learn and experience several local cultures with the opportunity to trade or purchase their local crafts, or try using a blowgun which some of the elders still use today for hunting. Meet with a local shaman who will explain and demonstrate the use of medicinal plants for healing and spiritual rituals.
When you are not out exploring the rainforest or local villages, towns and markets, there is as much or as little as you want to do on board. Relax on the Observation Deck taking in life on the river, enjoy the spa and/or Jacuzzi or you elect to join the chef for a cooking class, learn how to make Pisco Sour Cocktails or go fishing.
