Amazon River means for many people something fantastic, something over natural. Fact is, Amazon River is magic, irresistible and attractive. One fifth of the total water reserves of the Earth flow through Amazonia. It is by far the river with the biggest volume worldwide, and its volume is bigger than the combined volume of the following eight world’s big rivers.
The springs of Amazon River
Its basin is mostly an unexplored jungle (selva), called Amazonia, which is an important lung of our planet. According last measuring Amazon is also the world’s longest river, with a length 0f 6240 km. It becomes so longer than the Niles, Africa’s representative in this selective club, but there are other measuring needed to prove this thing. There are practically no bridges on the Amazon, as nobody needs them (There are no people and no roads in the jungle).

More people than ever are taking advantage of the popular “fly out – cruise – fly back” package deals that are proliferating the travel industry. A cruise is no longer confined to the super-rich, but falling more and more into the income bracket of ordinary working people. This is for two reasons, the first of which is the competition amongst the air carriers that has resulted in lower cost fares, and the ease of obtaining deferred payments through the travel agent.
With this increase in cruise popularity comes the choice of more destinations and a change from a sea cruise to a river cruise can be a real uplifting and enjoyable experience. Why not cruise the historic rivers and canals of Europe and lap up the cultural atmosphere of bygone ages? Better still, why not get closer to nature and take a cruise on the river Amazon?
