Iquitos

The Amazon jungle is everything we imagine as children and more. The majority of it remains largely intact despite of human’s efforts to downsize it. What we offer in the jungle surrounding the city of Iquitos is perhaps one of the most authentic experiences in Peru. We have partnered with Amak Iquitos, an eco-lodge 50 minutes away by boat from the city hidden in the jungle’s dense vegetation, and sitting on the banks of one of the the Amazon river.. During your stay, you will interact with many monkeys at Monkey Island, you will learn about animal rescue and shelter efforts being carried out throughout the regionthem and the amazing work to rescue monkeys at risk; you will stop in different parts of the jungle to continue learning about its flora and fauna, trek and even swim while you spot pink dolphins! You will also visit a local tribe that continues living the way their ancestors taught them: in harmony with nature, among many other adventure-full activities.

Puerto Maldonado & Tambopata

Puerto Maldonado is the capital city of the region of Madre de Dios, located near the border with Brazil and Bolivia. 98% of its territory is comprised of jungle (around 3.5 hectares!). There are three main natural reserves in Madre de Dios: the National Park of Manu, the Tambopata-Candamo Reserve and the Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. Comprendiendo 3.5 millones de hectáreas de ecosistemas de selva amazónica protegida y representa la más grande y más rica área para la biodiversidad en el mundo. Últimamente se han creado dos zonas adicionales: la Reserva Comunal Amarakaeri y la Zona Reservada de Purus con extensiones similarmente grandes. All tours depart from Puerto Maldonado, where the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers meet. Tours may vary in length from two to four days, during which you will have the chance to trek through the dense forrests of Tampobata to learn from the local flora and fauna. During your treks, you will be able to spot some of the region’s most exotic inhabitants, including parrots, macaws, sloths, monkeys, snakes or giant butterflies. No trip to the Madre de Dios jungle is complete without a night boat ride through the river to observe the jungle’s nocturnal creatures, such as caimans or capybaras, the largest rodents in the world. Our trips to the Madre de Dios jungle also include canopy tours which allow our travellers to witness the buzzling activity that takes place on the surface of the jungle.

Gocta & Chachapoyas

The capital of the Amazonas department, Chachapoyas, is a colonial settlement surrounded by high-altitude cloud forests. Most travelers use it as the base to explore ancient ruins by the warrior pre-Hispanic civilization of the Chachapoyas, many of which are some of Peru’s best-kept hidden gems. One of such is the fortified citadel of Kuélap, which was home to the ‘Warriors of the Clouds’. It is located 3,000 meters above sea level (approximately 10,000 feet) and was built around the 6th Century AD.
The Amazonas region is also the home of some of the most stunning wonders of nature in Peru, including the Gocta Waterfall, an incredible 771-meter (2,529 feet) high waterfall. At one point, it was considered the third highest waterfall in the world, although it now ranks 15th in the world. The waterfall is near the Caseríos of Cocachimba and San Pablo, in the district of Valera, Bongará province, in the department of Amazonas. One can reach the pool below the waterfall by hiking for three hours (one way; 6 hours round-hike) from Caserío de Cocachimba. Along the trail there are a total of 22 further waterfalls that get bigger and more impressive during the rainy season.
