We start our adventure of the Peruvian forest at the Iquitos City Airport, from there we will transport in a modern and comfortable air-conditioned minivan traveling on a nice highway to the town of Nauta.
Nauta was the first township founded by the Spanish at the Maranon River’s bank. The trip takes approximately 1.30 hours, a 97 km journey. In Nauta we will take boats, which belong to the lodge, to visit the Ucayali and Maranon River, where the Amazon River is born, from here we have a spectacular sight of the forest because of the 100 foot high watching tower, next we will go on with our trip to the lodge for lunch and accommodation. In the afternoon, we will go on a hike through the rainforests that surround the lodge, to appreciate rainforest flora and fauna; depending on the weather conditions, we are able to observe a beautiful sunset.
Dependant on night time climate conditions, we will make an excursion by boat to observe night animals and insects; also enjoyable is hearing the various sounds that come from the forest, later we will be back to the lodge for dinner and resting. (L, D)


At dawn, we will make a small hike through the forest around the lodge, searching for birds to observe, followed by breakfast back at the lodge.
Immediately after, we will go to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve where we register our entry and then continue our journey into the reserve.
In our visit to the reserve we will make a special excursion to observe the “gray” and “pink dolphin” down the Yanayacu River, in addition we will be in contact with the vast variety of flora and fauna that the reserve offers.
Something that immediately catches our attention is the black waters of the rivers, which reflects with such an identical image, the sky, the clouds, the bank’s vegetation, the huge trees, that the tourists have the sensation of traveling between mirrors; this is why the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve is known as the “jungle of the mirrors”.
At noon we will stop to have our box lunch.
We will visit Japon and Plantano lakes (cochas), with a great variety of palms, large trees and a beautiful landscape. At this place, we can make a variety of activities, dependant on the tourist, such as canoe rides, piranha fishing, and identification of plants, bird watching or maybe just relaxing with a nice cool swim in one of the lakes.
At the end of the day, we will back to the lodge for dinner and resting.(B, L, D)


We will go on with our bird watching session very early this morning followed by breakfast at the lodge.
Immediately after, we make an excursion by boat around the Nauta Creek and the closest lakes, where we observe flora and fauna (monkeys, sloths and wide variety of aquatic birds) and other; we will stop for a while to enjoy our box lunch under the shadow of the surrounding jungle trees.
Later, during our excursion to the primary forest, the guide will identify medicinal plants and trees of special interest.
Finally we go back to the lodge for dinner and resting. (B, L, D)
