Stride Travel Top Tour OperatorThe beautiful Amazon rainforest has an aura of mystery unlike many other places on earth. The jungle atmosphere is dense with humidity as partial sunlight filters through, due to the heavy canopy which hides thousands of fascinating creatures. This all combines to create an otherworldly landscape.

The winners of this year's Stride Travel Awards stand out above the rest for their commitment to responsible tourism and sustainability (especially important for travel to the Amazon), positive customer reviews, and unique itinerary design.

Southern Explorations Top Amazon Tour Operator

What is your most popular trip to the Amazon and why is it special? - Our trips into the Peruvian Tambopata National Reserve (like our nine-day Amazon & Machu Picchu tour) tend to be the most popular.

This region offers spectacular wildlife viewing due to incredible conservation efforts and several unique geographic features that concentrate wildlife. Also, the lodge-based excursions allow travelers to be more active and feel more connected to this special place.

Do you have any new or upcoming trips? - We have developed a series of stand up paddle board trips, including one in the Amazon.

What sets you apart from other tour operators offering trips to the Amazon? - Since we are solely focused on Latin America we spend a lot of time learning the nuances of the region. Our staff has traveled extensively through the Amazon and can tailor trip suggestions to a group's specific needs.
