Full description

Journey to the Amazon Rainforest for a two-day guided excursion by boat and on foot. Enjoy a glimpse into the rhythm of jungle life as you navigate waterways, search for wildlife, and discover medicinal plants and their uses. Along the way, immerse yourself in indigenous history and traditions.

Your tour begins when you meet your guide at the airport or hotel for pickup. Travel to the Nanay River Port, where you'll embark on a riverboat and head towards the Nanay and Amazon river crossing. At the Itaya-Amazon crossing, pause to search for dolphins. Cruise along for 2.5 hours.

Admire the sights and sounds of the rainforest as you continue your tour, navigating through the tributary, Río Yanayacu. Arrive at the hostel and enjoy a welcome and lunch. After your meal, set out on a hike to spot medicinal plants, strangler trees, sloths, toucans, and other diurnal species.

As the sunlight begins to wane, soak up the sight of the sunset over the rainforest before partaking in dinner. Once the night has set in, embark again on an evening walk – this time to search for tarantulas, amphibians, alligators, and more nocturnal fauna. Then, return to the lodge to rest.

The following morning, rise early to bask in the rays of the sunrise and see the swooping flocks of herons, eagles, parrots, and other exotic birds. Tuck into your breakfast, then explore the Yanayacu River. Fish for piranhas, palometas, and tarpon and look for iguanas.

Spend the rest of the morning rafting and admiring the diversity of plant life. If you wish, you‘ll also have the opportunity to visit the Yaguas community. Have lunch and enjoy about 1.5 hours of leisure time before departing for Iquitos, where you'll be taken back to the hotel or airport.
