AN EXCLUSIVE INNER CIRCLE EVENT: THE AMAZON RIVER VOYAGE
THIRDHOME members joined Wade Shealy, THIRDHOME‘s Founder and CEO, and Roger Conner, Senior Vice President of Business Development at THIRDHOME, for a Peruvian Amazon Voyage aboard the elegant Zafiro riverboat to discover earth’s greatest wilderness. They delved deep into the pristine Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, a 5-million-acre labyrinth of flooded forests, lagoons and peaceful creeks. They traveled upriver from the inland port of Iquitos aboard the Zafiro and explored villages and tributaries not accessible by any other means for an authentic immersive experience filled with extraordinary wildlife, flora and fauna. While aboard, they enjoyed luxurious amenities, tasted fresh Amazon fusion cuisine, viewed wildlife on hikes, fished for piranhas, explored by small-boat excursions and kayaks along the Amazon and met the welcoming locals of the riverside villages.
- Connect with fellow THIRDHOME travelers, chat with your local guides or enjoy snacks and a drink in the large indoor lounge.
- Glide past the Amazon rainforest and clusters of wooden houses on stilts as you sip morning coffee and take-in the fresh air from the river’s most luxurious Observation Deck.
- Siesta on a cushioned lounger beneath a soaring canopy and ease into the Zafiro’s outdoor Jacuzzi to relax after a shore excursion.
