Cruise to Ecuador

We certainly take the bull by the horns when we evoke the gargantuan anaconda as the symbol of our Amazon cruise adventure. The anaconda, that sacred creature that Hollywood put up so much money to misrepresent, is in reality a beautiful, spiritual, life-bearing being to those who share their land with her in the depths of the rainforest. She has, for ages, been inspiration for their art; she has, for millennia, given meaning to their culture; she is a symbol of Mother Nature’s gifts to our planet. And to us, she means all of this and more: the future of our planet’s heartbeat and survival. Upon three decades of knowing this deeply, we can only give her due respect and change the way the world has unfairly come to see her.

The Anakonda Amazon River Cruise is the only luxury ship in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. It was built to make the experience of the Amazon the most comprehensive and unique adventure possible! Its eighteen suites feature ample sitting areas, large and comfortable beds. The vessel comes complete with an expansive observation deck, outdoor Jacuzzi and an al fresco lounge, ideal for cocktails, relaxation, reading or simply enjoying the spectacular view. The vessel also features 3 canoes for guest transportation to land excursions and activities and 10 kayaks, as well as hammocks, naturalist tour leaders and a travel concierge, who will go out of his way to personalize your experience, making the Anakonda Amazon River Cruise a savory, unforgettably exciting treat!
