New Amazon River package by Contours Travel
- Save up to $2000 on Amazon River Cruises
- Experience the beautiful biodiversity of the world’s biggest rainforest
Contours Travel – the longest-running Latin American holiday agency in Australia – is offering savings of up to $2000 per couple on Amazon River cruises, which take guests into the heart of the world’s biggest rainforest, home to monkeys, pink river dolphins, otters, turtles, and more than 478 bird species. Bookings made on the river cruises before May 31, 2018, will also receive free return flights from Quito, Ecuador, to the edge of the Amazon rainforest, and a cabin upgrade.
The Amazon River is the largest on earth, representing about one-fifth of the world’s running water, and weaves its way through the lush Amazon Rainforest – which covers 5.5 million square kilometres. The cruises include opportunities to engage with local culture, customs and cuisines as well as journeying into Yasuni, Ecuador’s largest National Park, where guests can explore the region’s unique flora and fauna from on deck or from vantage points at the top of observation towers. Couples can choose between two vessels – the Manatee Amazon Explorer or the more luxurious Anakonda. Both begin in the town of Coca before journeying into the Yasuni National Park and offer excursions, cultural experiences and many opportunities to spot wildlife.
The Manatee Amazon Explorer is a 14-cabin ship and includes a bar, alfresco lounge, observation desk, jacuzzi and dining room. The ship’s small size means that it is able to navigate many different sites within the Amazon Basin. Four-day cruises onboard the Manatee cost from A$3070 per person, with the cabin upgrade and free flight offer saving A$845 per person.
The Anakonda is the only luxury ship in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest and features 18 suites with private balconies and panoramic windows, expansive observation desk, jacuzzi, alfresco lounge, hammocks, canoes, kayaks and the services of naturalist tour leaders and a travel concierge. Four-day cruises onboard the Anakonda cost from A$4118, with the cabin upgrade and free flight offer saving A$1000 per person.
Departure dates are available on August 22 and October 3 and 17, 2018. Bookings made before May 31, 2018, will attract free return flights from Quito to Coca in the Amazon and a cabin upgrade. Conditions apply. Flights from Australia to Ecuador are extra.
