Day 1: Arrival in Lima

We greet you at the airport upon arrival at Lima international airport (LIM) and transfer to the hotel.

 

Day 2: To Iquitos by the Amazon River and rainforest lodge

Domestic flight to Iquitos in the North of Peru, the largest isolated city in the world. 

An unforgettable experience lies ahead as we make our way to a small lodge outside of the city. For the next few days we will explore the lakes, strems and rivers of the complex world of the Amazon Rainforest. From your Paddle board you'll be able to spot sloths resting on the branches and a impressive variety of birds. If we are lucky we might even be able to see the pink river dolphins. Follow silently the river downstream and listen to the sounds of the surrounding forest. (Breakfast/lunch/dinner and drinking water is provided by the lodge) 

 

Day 6: To Iquitos. 

In the afternoon we are back in the city again. Overnight. (Breakfast, lunch)

 

Day 7: Visit the colorful market of Belen

During the rainy season this market is mostly flooded. The people live on rafts. Experience the large variety of produce and products from the jungle. Here you can see the floating lunch restaurant, the floating night club and much more. (Breakfast)

 

Day 8: Manatee rescue center

Sustainability and ecotourism is at the core of everything we do. This is one example of that. CREA is a project that successfully release several juvenile manatees per year.
