Cruise the Amazon | Delfin I | Plan South America

Delfin I


Cruise the Upper Peruvian Amazon on one of Delfin’s three luxury riverboats, our favourite being Delfin I.

With just four large suites, Delfin I is the smallest and most exclusive of the three, and is perfect for chartering with a group of friends.

When to Travel

The weather in the Peruvian Amazon is hot and humid.

The “High Water” season, between December and May, sees slightly cooler temperatures, but more rain. Fewer trails are able to be walked during these months, but higher river levels mean that more areas can be accessed by boat.

The “Low Water” season, between June and November, is when more hiking can take place, and you are more likely to see migratory birds flying over the jungle.
