Windsurfing and fishing are both popular activities and there are also great opportunities for rock climbing and hiking. You will have plenty of time to explore some of the cities, with excellent museums, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, diverse architecture, the seductive sounds of Bahian music, and the exotic and inviting scents and tastes of the African-influenced food. As we sail up the Amazon River, you will have the chance to explore the Amazon rainforest. Learn more about the ecology, enjoy birdwatching, and view the unique wildlife whilst hiking or canoeing. The mix of jaw-dropping nature, friendly people, rich culture and fascinating lectures makes this expedition even more mesmerising.
