Nowhere on Earth can you experience the splendour of nature on its grandest scale than in the Amazon region. The Amazon rainforest spans over 7 million square km and 8 South American countries including over a third of the country of Brazil.
The nearly 4,000 mile-long Amazon River is fuelled by many tributaries in the Andes of Peru and winds its way, at an ever-changing pace, to empty into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brazil.
Amazon tours offer many splendid sights to behold from rare animal species to exotic flora and fauna and each country within the Amazon offers its own advantages and sightseeing opportunities that may include walking, hiking, biking, or river cruising tours.
