Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Iquitos Amazon Cruise Day 1

Arrival transfer from Iquitos to Nauta where we board our ship (Please ask for recommended flights to meet the transfer). Along the way, you will see vibrant "terra firma" (non-flooded forest) and various aspects of daily jungle life.
Our staff will greet you and introduce you to your accommodation for the next 4 days. All cabins are specially equipped with amenities to ensure a comfortable stay such as orthopedic beds, pure cotton sheets, pillows of 100% pure natural latex, cotton bathrobes, air conditioning, and private bathroom with Spanish style hot water showers. Each cabin features a spacious private terrace where you can sit and enjoy the scenery

Day 2
Amazon Cruise Day 2

Today we recommend getting up early to appreciate one of the most important zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Capture wildlife at its best at first light, as this is when wildlife is known to be active with the rising of the sun. The walk along the Fundo Casual jungle trail will take you deep into the rainforest on terra firma (non-flooded forest) where your guide will point out the dynamic creatures and vegetation of the Amazon. Here you will have the option to swim in the jungle river along with the famous pink dolphins!

Day 3
Amazon Cruise Day 3

The adventure continues as we visit a private reserve complete with 8 hanging bridges high up in the rainforest canopy. To get there, we will walk through primary forest and paddle slowly across 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 high up in the treetops for many of the Amazon's animals, accompanied by a symphony of sounds.
Enjoy a delicious lunch, before we continue on and visit Jacinto Cocha, a black water lagoon, or Nauta Caño Creek where you will have the chance to do some kayaking and go fishing for the famous piranha, a delightful and challenging experience that you won't forget!
As night approaches, your guide will take you on a night safari in search of caiman alligators and night birds.

Day 4
Amazon Cruise Day 4 Depart

Before we end our amazing adventure, we will visit the community of San Francisco to meet local villagers who have called Amazonia their home for generations. You will be able to step into a typical schoolhouse where the children are always happy to have visitors, and then stop by an area to see the women of this community who have a most amazing arts and craft market.
After the excursion, the staff will wish you farewell as you begin your departure. At the port of Nauta, your transfer will await to take you back to Iquitos Airport (Please ask for recommended flight departures)
