Constructed in 2007 using a traditional Brazilian wooden riverboat style, the M/F Selva Viva is ideal for those wanting the experience of an Amazon cruise ... without breaking the bank.

While the facilities are functional, rather than luxurious, the Selva Viva is notable for its convivial, homely atmosphere that makes it easy to relax, while on board.

Moreover, the small size of the boat enables it to slip under the close canopy of the jungle, within narrow waterways, where the best wildlife-watching is to be had.

As the boat is owned and operated by a French-Peruvian NGO, passengers have the comfort of knowing that any money generated from their experience goes towards helping grassroots projects in the vast and under-developed Peruvian Amazon department of Loreto.


All prices quoted are per person, per day for the CHARTER of the entire vessel. For example, an exclusive 4-day cruise for 3 passengers would cost $349 x 4 = $1,396 per person, or $1,396 x 3 = $4,188 in total.

The Selva Viva is ideal for chartering, with its competitive pricing making this an excellent alternative for small groups. For example, those on a tight schedule may find a 3-day cruise to the Allpahuaya-Mishano Reserve, which is in within easy reach of Iquitos, a good option.
