4-DAY PERU AMAZON TOUR

Rainforest Adventure

Detailed Itinerary

4-Day Amazon Region Extension

 

This tour shows you some of the most spectacular natural and ecological treasures in the Amazon region of Peru. You'll boat and hike, view the rainforest, exotic birds, and wildlife, and spend magical nights in nature.

 

For this tour depending on the size of your group you may be joined by other travelers. Guided groups will be no larger than 10 for maximum interaction with the guides who are biologists, tourism professionals, or community members.

 

 

DAY 1

Arrive from Lima or Cusco, we will welcome you at the airport and drive you ten minutes to our Puerto Maldonado headquarters. While enjoying your first taste of the forest in our gardens we will ask you to pack only the necessary gear for your next few days, and leave the rest at our safe deposit site. This helps us keep the boats and cargo light.

Transfer to Posada Amazonas.

 

Lunch

Canopy tower: A twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas leads to the 30-meter scaffolding canopy tower. A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From the top you enjoy spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest through which the Tambopata River winds. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws may be flying against the horizon, or landing in the treetop next to you.

There'll be time to relax before dinner.

 

Dinner and ecotourism lecture.  A daily presentation on the Infierno Ecotourism project is available every night from a staff member.

Overnight at Posada Amazonas

 

 

DAY 2

Breakfast

Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake is thirty minutes by boat and forty-five minutes hiking from Posada Amazonas. Once there you will paddle around the lake in a catamaran, searching for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of our lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers. Otters are most active from dawn to eight or nine AM.

 

Lunch

Ethnobotanical Tour.  A twenty-minute boat drive downriver leads you to a trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape. The Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicines out of forest plants and administers them to patients who choose their little clinic. They have produced a trail which explains the different medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants.

 

Dinner

Night walk. You will have the option of hiking at night, when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. Much easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.

Overnight at Posada Amazonas

 

DAY 3

Parrot Clay Lick.  This clay lick is only a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas. From a blind located about twenty meters away you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on a river bank. Species such as Mealy and Yellow- headed Amazon, Blue-headed Parrot and Dusky headed Parakeet descend at this clay lick. The clay lick is active at dawn, during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.

 

We leave from the lobby at Posada Amazonas and embark on a two-hour hike to the largest tree in the vicinity: a giant ceiba tree. During the hike we will focus on the natural history of the rainforest and its principal taxonomic groups.

 

Lunch

Farm Visit. A thirty-minute boat drive downriver takes us to the most complete farm in the community of Infierno. The owner grows a diverse variety of popular and unknown Amazon crops. In his garden, just about every plant and tree serves a purpose.

Dinner

Overnight at Posada Amazonas

Machu Picchu was AMAZING!!!  It was everything we imagined it to be and more!! The myriad orchid species were spectacular as well.  A definite highlight.

 

I also really enjoyed the jungle with its many species of birds and animals.  Our accommodations were wonderful.  The place was beautiful, yet simple.  Perfect for what we were after.
