An unforgettable experience lies ahead as we make our way to a small lodge outside of the city. For the next few days we will explore the lakes, strems and rivers of the complex world of the Amazon Rainforest. From your Paddle board you'll be able to spot sloths resting on the branches and a impressive variety of birds. If we are lucky we might even be able to see the pink river dolphins. Follow silently the river downstream and listen to the sounds of the surrounding forest. (Breakfast/lunch/dinner and drinking water is provided by the lodge)
To quietly glide downstream on a small stream in the Amazon rainforest is an unforgettable experience. During this time of the year the forest is almost completely flooded.
Our specialised guides will share with you their knowledge about the forest and its people. Explore more river systems and lakes.
In the afternoon we are back in the city again. Overnight. (Breakfast)
During the rainy season this market is mostly flooded. The people live on rafts. Experience the large variety of produce and products from the jungle. Here you can see the floating lunch restaurant, the floating night club and much more.
Today you'll get a unique opportunity to work as a volunteer at a manatee rescue center. CREA is located 20 minutes outside of Iquitos and for many years they have successfully released young manatees back into the wild.
Close to the equator the water is warm and the beach endless. Paddle in the morning, relax in the hammock in the afternoon and barbecue fresh fish on the beach. Several additional activites are available like snorkelling with turtles, zip-lining, horse-back riding and surfing. We rent small bungalows from local families on the beach. In the town close-by, Mancora, you can find many restaurants, cafées and small shops. The food here is delicious and you'll have ample time to try the local specialties.
