Day 1: Iquitos | Embark

Arriving on a noon flight*, receive a warm welcome at Iquitos International Airport by the crew and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before embarking the Aqua Nera.

Settle into your generously sized suite as you begin one of life's greatest adventures. Following an introduction to the naturalist guides and a routine safety drill, gather at the restaurant for the first of many Amazonian cuisine experiences created by Aqua Nera's renowned consulting chef, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino.

*Separate arrangements can be made for morning arrivals.

Day 2: Yanayacu Pucate River | Clavero Lake

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Aboard the comfortable skiffs, you set sail from the Amazon River to the Yarapa River. Ready your binoculars to spot tropical songbirds, black collared hawks and sloths. Line-fish for Amazon’s notoriously ferocious piranhas while the naturalist guides share stories of Lake Moringo.

In the afternoon, you sail on to Lake Clavero where villagers rely on traditional dugout canoes to get around. Swim in the lake’s calm waters or visit native residents of Amazonia who welcome you to their community with open arms.

Day 3: Yanallpa River | Dorado River

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Explore the blackwater tributaries of the Yanallpa River by skiff, disembarking to walk deep into the wildlife-rich Amazonian rainforest. Later, you board the skiffs again to cruise along the El Dorado River for a dusk excursion in search of exotic nocturnal creatures.

Day 4: Nauta Town | Manatee Rescue Center | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
In the morning, take a guided visit to the local market and marvel at the regional produce of the Peruvian Amazon, and sample exotic snacks if you wish.

Return to the Aqua Nera for breakfast before disembarkation. En route to the airport, visit the Manatee Rescue Center, where orphaned Amazonian manatees rehabilitate before they are released back into the wild.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
