The last great natural wilderness, the Amazon is a truly awesome location that needs to be experienced to be fully understood. Named after female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazon is itself a place of nearly mythical status. What traveler hasn't imagined a trip to the Amazon, not only to admire the towering trees and awesome river, but to enter, in a real sense, the very life spring of the planet, the source of so much of the air we breathe, the water we drink and the weather we rely on? LTD offers a variety of ways to visit the Amazon. But the Amazonís quintessential experiences is found aboard the M/V Desafio, a classical schooner that offers guests old world charm and a comfortable, intimate atmosphere while cruising the waters of the mighty Amazon and Negro rivers. She has recently undergone a major refurbishment, and her cabins have been enlarged and facilities updated so your stay will be even more comfortable! With only 12 cabins, the boat is small enough to explore remote areas and for passengers to get to know their fellow travelers; but still spacious enough to provide comfort and casual elegance.
