Pacaya Samiria 4 Day Tour
After picking you up from the airport or your hotel in Iquitos, we'll drive to the port of Nauta. There we'll board a speedboat and begin our journey down the Marañon River. During the trip, we'll see the famous pink dolphins that usually inhabit these waters. Following on, a traditional lunch will be waiting for us.
The trip will end at the shores of a campsite located in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Once we set up our tents, we'll get to know the rich ecosystem of the Huaylla Lagoon. Afterwards, we'll have dinner in the middle of nature, and then go on a nocturnal trekking route - it's time to look for tarantulas, scorpions and giant frogs!
The hike will end at the camp, where we'll rest until the next day.
We'll get up early to watch the sunrise and try to spot the iguanas and sloths in the area. Afterwards, we'll return to the camp for breakfast. With our batteries well charged, we'll go up in a boat to navigate the Pucate River and observe various species such as monkeys, macaws or toucans. We'll disembark in the middle of the jungle to camp and have a comforting lunch.
In the afternoon, we'll walk through the jungle towards a lake, and learn how to use the medicinal plants! After dinner under the stars, we'll enjoy a night tour by canoe. Finally, we will return to the camp to rest.
Once we've had breakfast at the campsite, we'll sail down the Pucate River to see the otters that live on its banks. The journey will end with a good lunch. After lunch, we'll start with a walk through the jungle. On this route, we'll see the famous "matapalos" or "soul trees" and learn some survival techniques. We'll have dinner in the middle of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, and rest until the next day.
We'll wake up before dawn to watch the birds of the reserve. Afterwards, we'll have a delicious lunch, after which you'll have free time to walk around the banks of the Pucate River. Finally, we'll sail to Nauta and from there return by road to your hotel in Iquitos. If you prefer, 3 hours before your flight departure we can take you to the airport.
The tour includes 3 nights in camps in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Accommodation will be in tents or tambos (refuges of Inca origin) located on the banks of the rivers and lagoons of the jungle. We'll provide you with complete camping equipment: mats, sleeping bags, folding tables and chairs and first aid kit.
