Announcing Amazon Cruises with GreenTracks

DURANGO, CO, February 17, 2007 – The GreenTracks Amazon Cruise is an ecotour on the Amazon River and its tributaries that explores the upper reaches of the exotic Amazon in Peru, one of the world's greatest ecosystems, on a colorful Amazon riverboat. Years of experience exploring the Amazon allows GreenTracks to offer a unique cruise experience. There will be several excursions daily off the riverboat, led by GreenTracks-trained, bilingual Naturalist Guides. Using small excursion boats they will explore the creeks and oxbow lakes in search of wildlife. After dark they will do the same in search of caiman and colorful frogs. There will be hikes on rainforest trails in search of interesting animals, multicolored butterflies, bizarre insects, exotic flowers and gigantic trees. Ethnobotany (the use of plants by people) will be explained by the guides.

The Amazon riverboat has plenty of room to spread out and relax. Each cabin is air-conditioned and has private bath & shower. There is an air-conditioned dining room and an outdoor bar area. Meals of both international and regional cuisine are served buffet-style. Exotic rainforest fruits are available for snacks and juices.

These are 6 day/5 night cruises departing from Iquitos, Peru, on scheduled dates. Group size is always small, typically 8 - 12 people.
A GreenTracks eco-adventure cruise is fun, stimulating and educational. With over 16 years of operation GreenTracks has provided memorable experiences of the Amazon to thousands of travelers.Visit:
