Incredible wildlife, river cruises and jungle treks: discover the magic of the Peruvian Amazon on this four-day tour along the world's largest river.

4 Day Amazon River Cruise

Day 1

We'll pick you up from your hotel or the airport in Iquitos and head straight to the Bellavista port, where a boat will be waiting to take us to our jungle lodge. On the way, we'll make a stop at the meeting point of the Amazon and Nanay rivers, where we'll discover the local wildlife that inhabits the waters. Keep your eyes peeled for piranhas!

After leaving our bags at the lodge and enjoying a delicious lunch, we'll set off to visit one of the communities located in the lush jungle. There, we'll speak to the locals who will tell us all about their lifestyle and the healing properties of the medicinal plants found in the rainforest.

In the evening, we'll return to the lodge for dinner, and you'll have the choice to go out on a night walk to discover the jungle in a new way.

Day 2

Our day will begin with a visit to Neyser Island to see its famous snake sanctuary. As well as getting up close to the reptiles housed here, we'll also get to meet animals like anteaters, sloths, monkeys and turtles. For the finishing touch on a morning discovering the wildlife native to the Amazon, we'll hopefully get to spot pink Amazon dolphins on the cruise back!

In the afternoon, we'll head to a butterfly farm to learn all about these beautiful insects and their metamorphosis process.

Day 3

We'll get up at 4:30 am and embark on a jungle trek, which will be well worth the early start when we watch the breathtakingly beautiful sunrise in the rainforest. Afterwards, we'll return to the lodge to refuel with a hearty breakfast ready for the rest of the day's adventure.

Later on, we'll visit a local Yagua community, who will show us their traditional handicrafts and dances, before visiting another indigenous community to learn about their medicinal plants.

Day 4

On the final day of our excursion, we'll sail down the Amazon River for a unique experience: fishing for piranha. To top it off, we'll also go to an area known for its healing mud, where you'll have the opportunity to bathe in the mud.

After lunch, we'll make the return journey to Iquitos, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel or at the airport at around 4 pm.
