From the Andes to the borders of Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Colombia the Peruvian Amazon takes up roughly 60 percent of the country's land. Lowland and highland jungles make up the vast span, with Iquitos and Puerto Maldonado as the two main gates. Explore the depths of the Amazon Rainforest in Peru at a remote eco-lodge in the Manu Biosphere or Puerto Maldonado regions. Or opt for a river cruise on a luxurious small cruise ship that embarks in Iquitos and floats down the mighty Marañon river spotting monkeys and stopping at indigenous villages and taking hikes through the lush, bio-diverse rainforest. Contact one of Adventure Life's Peruvian rainforest travel specialists to modify any of the below hand-selected tours to your exact needs.

Highlights of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest

The densely jungled Amazon is a hotspot for biodiversity, with more species of plants and animals in one acre than most entire continents have.

Here are a few of the many exciting activities that will be featured on your Amazon itinerary:
  • Cruising rivers and lakes in a dugout canoe
  • Kayaking alongside pink river dolphins
  • Fishing for piranhas
  • Swimming in black water lagoons
  • Looking for monkeys and other wildlife
  • World-class birding
  • Climbing through the canopy on rope walks or towers
  • Canoeing to see Clay Licks and Oxbow Lakes
  • Meeting Indigenous people

Regions of the Amazon Rainforest:

Lowland Jungle: Peru's largest zone, with 260-1300 ft (80 to 400 m). Climate: warm (82°F/28°C average), humid, and rainy all year. The Amazon River flows across Peru's lowland jungles of Putumayo, Ucayali, Maraón, and Pastaza.

Highland Jungle: Peru's high forest is found in the Andes' eastern foothills, at altitudes ranging from 1,300 to 3,280 ft (400 to 1000 m). The climate in the highland jungle is cooler than in the lowland jungle. The area is more secluded from the rest of the Amazon and other places, attracting rare animal species.
