Day 1: Iquitos | Nauta | Río Amazonas

Upon arrival at the airport, wait to be taken to DoubleTree by Hilton Iquitos hotel, where you will receive the first orientation talk on the adventure you are about to begin. Then, we will head in a private vehicle to the city of Nauta, the historical fluvial port where we will be boarding.

 

Day 2: Pacaya Samiria National Reserve | Marañon River | Yanayacu de Pucate | San Regis | Amazon Natural Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning,  organize a fun picnic breakfast on the Yanayacu de Pucate River, one of the most protected and preserved areas of Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. This area is usually visited by pink dolphins and is ideal for small boats, so you will put kayaks at your disposal so you can live the experience of rowing in one of the most beautiful aquatic ecosystems in the world. Also, if you want, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the river.
 

Day 3: Pacaya Samiria National Reserve | San Jose de Zarapanga | Shiriyacu | Pacaya Samiria National Reserve | Puerto Prado

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Start off this morning with breakfast and then head on a boat expedition with destination to the Shiriyacu river stream. Once there, look for the perfect spot for piranha fishing. Use local equipment and local techniques.
Back on the ship, listen to a lecture on techniques and tools for geographic orientation in the rainforest. If you prefer, you can take a rest until lunchtime.
 

Day 4: Nauta | Iquitos

  • 1 Breakfast
After the buffet breakfast aboard, we will proceed to disembark in Nauta and head to Iquitos. Along the way, visit the Amazon Rescue Center (CREA), where biologists and volunteers take care of the animals that have been saved from illegal trafficking including the beloved manatees and the aquatic mammals, dangerously threatened by hunters. Find the species that have been rescued by the authorities and which are in the process of reintegration into their natural environment. Learn more about their traits, the risks they face (deterioration of their habitats and wildlife trafficking), and best of all, you can play around with them since they are very friendly.
After this emotional and unforgettable experience, we will continue our way to Iquitos where, once you get to the airport, your journey will have concluded.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
