Tour the majestic Amazon rainforest with South America Tours Pty Ltd, and unlock what is arguably the most important ecosystem on Earth. This is the largest remaining tropical forest on the planet, and it discharges a full 25 per cent of its fresh water. It also plays a critical role in the global carbon cycle, which is why the Amazon has been nicknamed the ‘lungs of the planet’.
The intense tangle of jungles found here is home to a more diverse selection of wildlife than anywhere else on Earth. In fact, the towering trees and rushing waters here are home to such incomparable diversity, that scientists are still working to classify it all. The discovery of new species in the Amazon is a matter of routine.
If you would like to travel to the Amazon, there are many different places to base yourself. Several different countries in South America have a claim to this forest. We offer a range of Amazon-based tours in Brazil, Ecuador and Peru – with a host of activities and experiences for you to engage in. You’ll have the chance to view amazing wildlife, interact with indigenous cultures, soar through the dense canopy and, of course, cruise the mighty Amazon River.
