Eye-opening Amazon cruise

17:30 AEST Sat Mar 24 2012
The Amazon River — the world's largest. It's more than 6500km long and starts 100km upstream in the Andes. It proudly flows without a bridge crossing it and is home to more than 3000 species of fish.

Jason Dundas went on a Scenic Tours adventure down the Amazon, starting in the tiny town of Iquitos, a city isolated in the eastern corner of Peru, 105m above sea level.


This is the perfect place for lovers of eco-tourism who want close contact with the virgin nature of the Amazon forests. It's also the world's largest city which cannot be reached by road.
