Day 1: Arrive at Refugio Amazonas

Arrive in Puerto Maldonado and be taken to your vehicle. Ride to the Infierno Community Port to board a motorized canoe and head upstream to the lodge. You may see macaws, heron, caiman and capybara along the way.

Day 2-3: Activities at Refugio Amazonas

  • Hotel
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Over the next two days you will be able to partake in many different activities. These activities are subject to change depending on the weather:
  • Claylicks - Take a boat trip to the Chuncho Clay Lick inside the Tambopata National Reserve to see macaws descend to eat the clay on clear mornings. 
  • Discover a New Species – Join a resident scientist and help him/her collect insects that will be genetically sequenced. Every month, a lucky guest discovers a new tiger-moth, scorpion-wasp, caddisfly or treehopper species that is new to science!
  • Canopy Tower - Climb up a 30-meter scaffolding canopy tower with spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest. You will have a good chance of spotting toucans, parrots, macaws or mixed species canopy flocks.
  • Camera Trapping at a Mammal Clay Lick – Configure camera traps at a nearby mammal clay lick and download wildlife photos from the past few days to help scientists find out what is present at The Big Grid, the 288 kilometer trail system experiment. 
  • Life in the Rainforest - Visit a working jungle farm and a real Brazil nut concession to learn about the way of life in the rainforest. Taste exotic tropical fruits and discover medicinal plants from the neighboring local families that they are helping integrate into the ecotourism industry.
  • Lake Exploration - Paddle around Lake Condenado looking for wildlife such a hoatzin, caiman or horned screamers.
  • Adventure in Nature – Kayak and Stand-Up Paddle on the Tambopata River and rappel to a Canopy Platform. 
  • Wired Amazon Science Lab – Hang out with resident biologists as they peer through a stereoscope to properly identify insect specimens before mounting them and sending them off to the University of Guelph for genetic sequencing.

  • Wellness Center – Enjoy massages and aromatherapy at the Wellness Center.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
