"Nowhere is nature more creative than the Peruvian rainforest," says The Daily Telegraph, while National Geographic Traveler adds that going by boat means you can travel into "previously inaccessible jungle". At £775 per person, this deal takes you through the Amazon on a riverboat adventure, for half the usual price.

The exciting package includes:

  • Six nights aboard the Queen Violeta Amazon riverboat
  • Return flights between Lima and Iquitos
  • Arrival transfer from Lima's Jorge Chávez International Airport
  • Excursions throughout
  • Eight breakfasts, six lunches and six dinners

The trip begins in Lima with an overnight stay -- be sure to try ceviche, the local speciality -- before an early flight the following morning to Iquitos, which can only be reached by river or air. After a tour of this jungle port city and a trip to the Amazonian Manatee Rescue Centre, you'll board the Queen Violeta Amazon for a 6-night cruise.

During the voyage, look out for river turtles and grey and pink dolphins playing in the water, as well as monkeys, sloths and a variety of birds in the tree canopy above. Highlights of the trip include a full day in the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve -- Peru's largest national park -- a catamaran excursion on the Enchanted Lake and a visit to a local shaman. You'll also take two late-night excursions, with the chance to spot bats, reptiles such as black caiman and possibly even a jaguar.

After a farewell dinner with live music on board the Queen Violeta Amazon on the penultimate night, finish with another overnight stay in Lima.

Depart on 14, 21 September.

There is no supplement for single travellers -- you'll just be paired with another traveller in a twin cabin.
