Our Expert Guide will lead you on an unbelievable 4-day journey, exploring the wild Peruvian jungle where you'll experience sailing hours down Amazonian rivers leading deeper and deeper into the trees and discovering unimaginable flora and fauna found in few other places in the world.
The adventure begins as we depart from the city of Iquitos and travel to Nauta in a private car. The excitement will start to set in as you observe modern day civilization slowly fading away, and the powerful jungle growing ever nearer. Upon arrival in Nauta, we'll board a motor boat and cruise down the Marañón River, delving deeper into the lush forested landscapes. After about three and a half hours on the river, we'll arrive at Buenos Aires, our base in the National Reserve. Once we've set up camp, we'll sail for another 25 minutes to Huaylla Lake to admire a number of birds such as shanshos herons, camungo, and both grey and pink river dolphins. In the evening we'll have the chance to explore our surroundings and observe tarantulas and a wide variety of other insects and rodents.
We'll kick off the second day with a hearty breakfast followed by another three hours motor boating down the river. This time, we'll be sailing to Iricahua, where we'll set up our campsite. In the evening, we'll journey on a special night hike. During this hike, you'll have the unique opportunity to see different types of birds, turtles, possibly anacondas, rodents such as capybaras, and even alligators.
On the third day of our expedition, we'll continue to venture deeper into the jungle to admire a large number of colorful macaws, curious turtles, and even learn about the medicinal uses for native plants and trees. Here, our Expert Guide will also teach you the basics of survival in the jungle, proper hiking techniques, and skills such as natural orientation and fire starting. Then, we'll spend the afternoon fishing for piranhas and other types of jungle fish while observing stealthy river wolves pass by. After relaxing a bit and watching a spectacular sunset, we'll set out on a night boating excursion in order to observe even more captivating nocturnal jungle species.
During the fourth day we'll begin our return journey after breakfast, sailing on the river until arriving at Plantano Lake for a birdwatching excursion, observing prehistoric birds such as the camungos, herons, martin pescador, and eagles. We'll then spend some time fishing and taking in all we can of our last few hours in the lush Peruvian jungle landscapes before we return to Nauta, followed by Iquitos, closing the book on our magical nature journey.
Join us for 4 days jam-packed with alluring wildlife, dreamlike landscapes, and unforgettable experiences which you can only find in Peru's dazzling Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.
