DAY 02 | AMAZON RIVER

This morning, we recommend getting up early to appreciate the wildlife. Early rising is always rewarding since animal are most abundant and active with the rising of the sun. This is one of the most important zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The walk at Fundo Casual jungle trail will take you deep into the rainforest on terra firme (non-flooded forest) where your guide will point out the dynamic creatures and vegetation of the Amazon. Be sure to keep an attentive eye open for identifying surprises!

In the afternoon, you will start cruising through the Yanayacu and Pucate Rivers, peeking into different creeks and lagoons. This is one of the best preserved and protected zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Your guide will use an expert eye to pinpoint all the biodiversity of this region. You can swim in the jungle river along with the famous pink dolphins!

DAY 03 | AMAZON RIVER

Begin your morning with an adventurous journey to visit to a private reserve complete with 8 hanging bridges high up in the rainforest canopy. To get there, you will walk through primary forest and paddle slowly through tranquil Tahuampa Lake, a black water lagoon with giant arapaima fishes (known locally as paiche) and with luck, you might hear them jumping up to breathe the crisp dawn air. The suspension bridges will give you a peek into the life and riches up in the treetops for many of the Amazon's animals. A symphony of sounds will surely enchant your ears.

In the afternoon, continue exploring Nauta Caño Creek and its various delights via skiff. Your guide will point out animals such as the slow moving sloths, various bird species, and perhaps even squealing monkeys! If you wish, you can also kayak through the calm waters this afternoon, skimming the riverbanks on your own to play your own game of “I spy”. As night approaches, your guide will take you on a night safari in search of caiman alligators and night birds.

DAY 04 | DISEMBARKATION IN IQUITOS - LIMA/FINAL DESTINATION

With heavy hearts, the staff will wish you farewell as you begin your departure. At the port of Nauta, our ground crew will be waiting to take you by our private vehicle back to the city of Iquitos, about 95 kilometers journey by paved road.

The Rescue & Rehabilitation Center of River Mammals (ACOBIA): On our way from Nauta back to Iquitos airport, you will visit the Rescue & Rehabilitation Center of River Mammals (ACOBIA) where you will have the chance to meet baby manatees and learn about these wonderful and docile creatures and why they are on the endangered species list. You will also have the chance to pet and feed these kind manatees. As well, there are also some other animals cared for by the center that have been rescued from capture for the intention of being turned into pets and other threatening conditions. We welcome you to donate to this ambitious organization and education center as you wish.
