Into the Forest

mv_overview A year ago, we had the chance to be the first guests on the M/V Aqua, the modern-design luxury river cruiser plying the Peruvian Amazon. The experience was way cool — so much so that we’re almost ready to book a return trip to experience the boat’s upcoming science-filled expedition.

From February 17 – 22, the Aqua will host a clutch of jungle research types who will lecture and explore the Amazon’s unique and fragile biosphere as part of luxury tour operator Butterfield & Robinson’s “Destinations at Risk” series. Headlining the whole thing will be Celine Cousteau, who first travelled up the Amazon at age 9 with her legendary grandfather, Jacques Cousteau and is currently working on a medical expedition among the Achuar peoples of the Northern Amazon. Peru here we come.
