The Anakonda Amazon Cruise takes you into the endless heart of biodiversity through the Ecuadorian Amazon Basin on a 4-, 5- or 8-day small ship cruise. Explore the remote nature of the jungle in full comfort and leisure aboard the 5-star, 40-guest cruise vessel M/V Anakonda, specifically designed to navigate on the Napo River in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Explore incredible parrot clay licks, untamed wilds within the Yasuni National Park (the largest national park in Ecuador) and canopy observation towers perched against giant kapok and fig trees. Every day is a perfect balance between relaxation on board and naturalist-led activities in the Amazon such as swimming, kayaking, birdwatching, rainforest trekking, canoeing, visiting Amazonian communities to see handicraft demonstrations and cook traditional dishes, nighttime forest walks and glamping.

Spend 8, 5 or 4 days exploring the Amazon aboard the all-suite M/V Anakonda. Winner of a World Travel Award 2016 as South America’s Leading Boutique Cruise, Anakonda Amazon Cruises are characterized by comfort, exceptional culinary offerings and once-in-a-lifetime journeys involving Amazonian cultural immersion, unique and vibrant wildlife and the unrivaled wonders of its many ecosystems. In this rich and diverse environment, observe enchanting animals such as the pink river dolphin, giant otters and turtles, as well as hundreds of native birds and primates while navigating along the region’s freshwater rivers, both whitewater and blackwater. Relax in the Anakonda's bar and lounge, spa with a view or outdoor hot tub on the vessel's top deck during this Amazon journey that is both relaxing and exhilarating.

Travel downstream to the Pañayacu River delta, where you will take a canoe trip to the fascinating water reserve of Pañacocha Lake, an ecosystem flooded by blackwaters.

This is the perfect habitat for piranhas, the water monkey fish (Arawana) and the white caiman. In this little piece of paradise, participate in nature walks led by local naturalist guides and relax at a nearby campsite where you will enjoy a delicious Amazon-style BBQ and refreshing beverages.
