Aqua Expeditions has announced the launch of a series of unique hosted journeys exclusively for women for 2017. Offering unparallelled access to the world’s greatest rivers in utmost comfort, women will be able to embark on limited-edition experiential journeys from January 2017. Cruising on both the Amazon and Mekong rivers, there will be two Aqua Expeditions Journeys with more to come later in the year.
With more and more people opting to travel solo, Aqua Expeditions has launched these series to offer women a safe and inclusive environment to explore destinations which may otherwise feel too ‘off the beaten track’ for a solo traveller. The cruises offer women the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions of both Cambodia and Peru all whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure and enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time. Travelling alone can often be hugely therapeutic and enable a different level of immersion into local culture. It can be an incredible chance for self-discovery and personal growth and Aqua Expeditions are hoping this will give women the chance to achieve just this whilst discovering the best of Peru and Cambodia.
As well as cruising down the rivers, guests will be able to discover hidden gems along the river – travelling by bike alongside the Mekong through local villages or kayaking down the Amazon to spot extraordinary wildlife. Both cruises offer guests hand-crafted itineraries with biking, kayaking, hiking, wildlife viewing and cultural “meet and greets” with local community members.
Both vessels offer the ultimate in luxury accommodation, with custom designed suites; 5-star guest service with a 1:1 staff to guest ratio offering a personalised service 24-7; small group excursions; gastronomic journeys with the chefs taking trips to the local markets, cooking classes and their 5-star cuisine which all incorporate local fresh produce and regional specialities. To top it off, guests can indulge with a treatment at the on-board spa or simply enjoy drifting past the riverside views whilst taking a dip in the infinity pool.

In just nine years, Aqua Expeditions has become a recognized leader in small ship cruising on the world’s greatest rivers. The realization of founder Francesco Galli Zugaro’s dream, the architect-designed, custom-built 16-suite Aria Amazon brought luxury cruising to the Amazon River in Peru, offering travellers professionally guided nature-based adventures combined with sophisticated 5-star boutique hotel accommodations and gourmet cuisine. Aqua Expeditions’ second luxury vessel, the 20-suite Aqua Mekong now sails seemingly across time on the historic Mekong River between Cambodia and Vietnam. Guests go deeper into both legendary destinations by cycle and kayak on every launch.
