PONANT is inviting you to enjoy an unforgettable experience along the Amazon River, on a 13-day expedition cruise. Aboard Le Dumont-d’Urville, immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of this mythical and impressive river in the heart of Brazil, following a brand-new itinerary.

After embarking in Cayenne, in French Guiana, you will sail along the Atlantic coast of Brazil to reach the earth-coloured waters of the Amazon.

You will then sail up the river from east to west, to discover the many treasures it conceals: dense and varied vegetationtropical fruit, a host of animal species, hamlets, stilt houses, local boats… In spite of the developments brought by modern civilisation, this ecosystem – the only one of its kind in the world – remains the cradle of a protected tropical life, which you will be fortunate to witness.

At the confluence of the Tapajos and Amazon rivers, around Santarem, you might be lucky enough to spot some extraordinary pink river dolphins (also called botos).

Le Dumont-d’Urville will then stop in the beautiful city of Belém, where you will be captivated by the huge open-air market and the walls of Forte do Presépio.

Finally, you will discover the Salvation Islands, famous for their magnificent landscapes and their terrible history: in the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century, these three tracts of land resting in the Atlantic Ocean were penal colonies where convicts, political prisoners and known criminals were exiled and held in prisons which you will be able to visit.

Subject to weather and river conditions. The expedition highlights, encounters with the wildlife and itineraries described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
