ABOUT ADVENTURE IN THE ARCA CRUISE
[Click on map to see large version]
The M/V Arca is a 31 passenger steel hulled riverboat which was rebuilt in 1988. In 2001, it was refurbished for speed and comfort on the Amazon. Its 8 twin (lower/upper beds), 2 triple (lower beds) and 3 triple/quadruple (bunk beds) cabins are fitted in Cedar and Amazon Mahogany. Each cabin is air-conditioned and has private bath and shower. There is an enclosed, air-conditioned dining room, a bar, and sun deck areas fore and aft (both covered and uncovered).
The Arca navigates in the Upper Amazon basin and sails up to the Peruvian Andes Foothills cruising through Pacaya Samiria National Reserve and Yurimaguas region. We sail on the Amazon, Marañon and Huallaga rivers. Our riverboat operates from Iquitos to Yurimaguas, gateway to the spectacular foothills of the Andes and the seldom visited Kuelap ruins. This cruise also operates in the reverse and connects with northern Peru.
