What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderate

Travelers should be able to climb 60 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 3 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 3 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 5,000 to 7,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderate

Pacing is sometimes robust, and may include several long days with early hotel departures, active sightseeing and evening activities. Opportunities for daytime rest and rejuvenation may be limited on most days. May include significant motor coach time, two or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING
  • This adventure is moderately paced
  • We spend 20 nights cruising aboard the Ocean Explorer, 2 nights in Buenos Aires at the Sofitel Buenos Aires Recoleta Hotel (or similar) and 2 nights at the Quality Hotel Manaus (or similar)
  • We spend 9 days cruising the Amazon River 

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS
  • This is a tour for moderately active travelers. There are several walking tours throughout and travelers must be able to maneuver in and out of Zodiac boats
  • Sightseeing takes place on foot and on Zodiac boats
  • Footing can be uneven or challenging in some of the historic and rain-forest sites we visit. The cobbled streets of medieval Old Towns will also require care
  • Travelers must be able to climb in and out of a small excursion boat

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION
  • Most shore excursions, especially those in historic cities and in the rain forest, require walking on uneven terrain
  • Shore excursions utilize air-conditioned shuttles or motorcoaches. During the hotel-based land portion of this trip, a walking tour might leave directly from the hotel, or it too might utilize air-conditioned shuttles or motorcoaches
  • The tour to view the Meeting of the Waters and fish for piranha utilizes a small excursion boat

CLIMATE
  • Due to the climate, we advise you to pack sunscreen and moisturizer (in the amounts permitted by TSA regulations), and bring a hat and sunglasses as well. If you’re traveling in summer, be sure to bring very cool cotton or linen clothing
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly

Please Note: Ocean cruising is not the same experience as river cruising; as such, you may experience fluctuating tides and weather patterns that may involve some rocking of your vessel. Itineraries will include all activities as planned except in extreme cases that can’t be controlled by your shipboard crew. Day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert.
