Where the perfect holiday is waiting for you this year
Aqua Expeditions – Luxury Cruises for unparalleled travel experiences, in the utmost comfort, to modern-day adventurers cruising the world’s greatest rivers.
Aqua Expeditions has become an established leader in small ship river cruising. In 2008, founder Francesco Galli Zugaro realized his dream of launching the first luxury cruise on the Amazon River in Peru, home to exotic bird species and enchanting pink dolphins, with the architect-designed, custom-built 12-suite Aqua Amazon which quickly earned accolades for its professionally guided nature-based adventures combined with sophisticated 5-star boutique hotel accommodations and gourmet cuisine. Building on that success, Aqua Expeditions launched the 16-suite Aria Amazon in 2011. Strategic upgrades in 2015 offer a refreshed, elegant look aligned with the latest technology and sleek new skiffs.
On the other side of the world, Aqua Expeditions launched a third luxury vessel in 2014 to unprecedented critical acclaim. The 20-suite Aqua Mekong sails seemingly across time on the Mekong River between Cambodia and Vietnam. Floor to ceiling picture windows confer captivating panoramas of flooded forests, colonial churches and stilt villages. Guided shore excursions include enlightening visits to remote Buddhist temples and onto Cambodia’s vast Tonle Sap Lake before continuing on to Angkor Wat. On both sides of the world, guests go deeper into each epic destination by bicycle and kayak to view little seen worlds of enduring wonders. More information at www.aquaexpeditions.com
