Just getting to places like the Madidi National Park will involve lengthy boat rides. However, surrounding the lodges are small lakes ideal for boat trips.
Generally it is hard to spot birds in the dense rain forest, but the area has wide rivers as well as lakes which break the canopy, allowing you to see a lot more than usual.
There are a number of paths throughout the region, some up steep slopes offering superb views over the canopy, others are proper jungle treks.
