The Amazon River is the longest, widest river, with the greatest volume of water, in the world. Forming part of Brazil’s mighty Amazon basin, Peru’s Amazonia is a maze of waterways and lagoons.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN PERUVIAN AMAZON

CANOPY WALKWAY

After ascending the first tower, at 95 feet (29 m) above the forest floor, you will literally walk through the treetops for one-and-a-half hours along suspension bridges that link eight observation platforms

LAKE SANDOVAL

Glide in a dugout canoe, across a beautiful, mirror-like oxbow lake that is home to the endangered giant river otter, as well as red howler monkeys, macaws, prehistoric hoatzins, also called ―shanshos, point-tailed palm creepers and side-neck turtles

TWILIGHT RIVER CRUISE

On this guided afternoon motorized canoe ride, you will witness the enchanting transformation from a diurnal to a nocturnal environment, as animals and birds of the daytime are replaced by species specially adapted to the night

WALKING TRAILS

Take a walk to one of the trails that extend approximately 7.3 km (4,5 miles) in the Natural Reserve and you will discover the incredible realm of the Amazon rain forest. The trails offer an excellent introduction to the environment of the jungle, as you walk past exotic rain forest trees

GAMITAN CREEK

Enjoy a motorized canoe ride, and then a long walk to reach the adventures of Gamitana creek. The sights, scents and sounds of the jungle will surround you as you walk for one and a half hour, rambling through the rainforest along the banks of this winding, dark-water creek that is home to piranha, caimans, turtles

TAMBOPATA

Following a short motorized canoe ride from the lodge, this activity begins with a walk to Lake Sandoval. Be on the lookout for hoatzins, herons and ospreys as you glide across this mirror-like oxbow lake in a wooden canoe
