While on the expedition you stay aboard one of the historical riverboats, the Rio Amazonas or the Pithecia. These lovingly restored boats from the rubber boom period have been navigating the Amazon for over 100 years. Accommodation is fairly comfortable for a research site in the Amazon, and you can expect to stay in a dorm-style room with bunkbeds and an en-suite bathroom with a toilet and refreshingly cool showers. There is even air-conditioning at certain times of day! The research boats are moored on the Yarapa river, and you will be working from small auxiliary boats navigating up and down the river and side-channels, transferring to the terra firma areas for terrestrial surveys.
