Arriving on a noon flight, receive a warm welcome at Iquitos International Airport by the crew. Board your private transfer to downtown Iquitos, for a panoramic city tour and a welcome lunch. Then transfer to Nauta port for embarkation. Settle into your generously sized suite as you begin one of life’s greatest adventures.

At dusk, explore the Yarapa River in search of exotic nocturnal wildlife.

After lunch, go fishing for Amazonia´s notoriously ferocious piranhas and for a dusk excursion in search of exotic nocturnal wildlife.

Day 6: Samiria River | Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

The rewards of your early start today are plentiful, including a picnic lunch under the Amazonian shade, orchestrated to the sound of the jungle symphony.

Later, cruise along the Ucayali River and enjoy the sunset.
