Private Independent Travel

Board the M/V Anakonda for this fascinating 5-day itinerary on the Amazon river. Visit remote villages and sail through unique and fragile ecosystems on your luxurious small-ship voyage.

Day 1

    Embark

    Arrive in the city of Coca and transfer to the Río Napo port. Take a 90-minute motorized canoe downstream to board the M/V Anakonda. After boarding, attend a welcome orientation and begin your journey down the Amazon. Following dinner, enjoy an optional nocturnal forest walk to discover the mysteries of this unique environment.

    Day 2

      Yasuni National Park

      In the morning, disembark for the first daylight close-and-personal tropical rainforest experience, where you will see and learn about the incredible biodiversity of the Amazon.

      After lunch, the ship navigates to one of the most pristine and rarely explored sections of Ecuadorian Amazonia, home to the legendary pink river dolphin, black caiman, and anaconda. Also be on the look out for river turtles, various species of monkey, and hoatzins. The only way to actually visit this flooded ecosystem is by canoe, a ride that will reveal the beauty of a lush jungle world. A glamping option is available to those travelers who wish to participate, please inquire for more information.

      Day 3

        Visit to a Local Community/Island Exploration

        After breakfast, visit a school located on the banks of the Napo River, where you have the opportunity to interact with children in the area. After lunch on the ship, take a moment to relax while the boat navigates upstream. During this time, the crew will offer a lecture and documentary screening. In the afternoon, explore one of the largest river islands of the Napo River.

        Day 4

          Observation Tower

          In the morning, visit an observation tower which is 100-feet high to get great views of the forest as it looms over the treetops. In the afternoon, visit Limoncocha Biological Reserve, a fascinating protected area where more than 478 bird species and several monkey species have been recoded. In the evening, head out to spot black caiman in the sill waters.

          Day 5

            Disembark

            In the morning, disembark the Anakonda and arrive back in Coca by canoe. Transfer to the airport for your connecting flights onward.
