Dare to spend three days in Pacaya Samiria and enjoy a complete Amazon rainforest experience. You will encounter amazing creatures both day and night.
Pacaya Samiria 3 Day Tour
After picking you up in Iquitos at 8 am, we will board a bus that will take us to the idyllic town of Nauta. Once there, we will travel again to the Marañon River, one of the main tributaries of the Amazon, running through Pacaya Samiria. There, a boat will be waiting to take us along the course of the river on a three and a half hour trip. We will be impressed by the deep canyons that the Marañon has been causing in its path.
Once the walk is over, we will go to the camp, where the tents will be set up for the night. We then enjoy a rest in our accommodation before we begin our adventure in the Amazon jungle. We will take a break to regain our strength while tasting a delicious typical Peruvian menu before exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The food we will offer is adapted to all tastes, there is a vegetarian option, and also chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit, and much more.
We will get into another boat again that will take us for a trip to the enormous Huaylla lake. Along the way, we will see some of the wonderful wildlife that inhabits the reserve, such as herons, shanshos, camungos, and the amazing pink river dolphins. Our guide will show you many other surprises too.
Later, when night falls, we will see scary tarantulas and hear the sounds of birds and other exotic nocturnal animals.
Once the busy day is over, we will return to the camp and enjoy a well-deserved rest in the tent. There is still so much more to come!
After having a full breakfast at the camp, we will head back into the Pacaya Samira National Reserve to set up the camp where we will later spend the night. This immersion in nature will introduce us to what species of flora and fauna grow in the jungle.
If we take a look at the sky, we can probably see birds flying over the forest. We will be attracted by the wide range of colors of the feathers of these animals, as is the case of the yellow-crowned parrot.
We will also encounter some amazing mammals that inhabit the Amazon rainforest, such as sloths and different types of monkeys. If we are lucky, we may even see some of these animals climbing the tall trees that crown this immense ecosystem.
Before concluding this day in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, we will take a boat ride at night to see caimans, turtles, and fearsome anacondas in their natural habitat. Afterward, we return to the camp to spend our last night in the Amazon.
The third and last day of the tour will be dedicated to the Inidegonous tradition of fishing. We will enjoy a day hunting for fish such as piranhas.
After eating a full breakfast at the camp, we will dive back into the jungle to once again admire the exotic birds and landscapes.
We will return to the camp to satisfy our hunger with a delicious meal. With our strength fully recharged and after having rested, we will get on a boat to Nauta, where we will take a bus that will take us back to Iquitos.
You will stay inside the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. There you can choose between spending the night at the base camp in a private room with a shared bathroom or camping in the jungle (we will provide you with the tent and everything you need to be comfortable).
You can choose if you prefer to spend one night in each place or both in the same accommodation.
