Our staff will meet and meet you at the Iquitos Airport from where you will be transferred to the city or picked up at the hotel. Along the way, you will briefly get to know the tourist highlights of Iquitos, this representative town of the Peruvian jungle that in the 19th century went from being a small outpost to the most important port city of the Amazon basin, acquiring a cosmopolitan status. prominent during the so-called “Rubber”. boom”.

In Iquitos, you will first be introduced to your naturalist guide and then transferred overland to Nauta, where you will board the boat that will take you to the Tambo Amazonico Lodge.

Transfer to the town of Nauta distant 62 miles from Iquitos by the new Iquitos-Nauta Highway. The land route crosses various ecosystems, such as the Quistococha National Tourist Park, a dense humid forest, and the Allpahuayo-Mishana National Reserve, a forest of scrubs and white sands of varillal and chamisal, a favorite place for bird watching and home to some endemic species.
After a journey of approximately 2 hours, you will arrive in Nauta, a small and picturesque town on the banks of the Marañón River. You may have a few minutes to stroll through the town before boarding the boat to the Yarapa River (Zona Exterior Pacaya-Samiria). Lunch.

Navigate the Marañón River. The Marañón that together with the Ucayali form the mighty Amazon River, has its origin 1,000 miles back in the heights of the Department of Huánuco. It was through this waterway that much of the Peruvian Amazon region was explored and settled since the 16th century when Spanish conquistadors searched for “the country where everything is gold.” Currently, the
Marañón is the way to discover another type of immeasurable wealth, one of the largest natural reserves in Peru.

The boat ride from Nauta takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes to reach the inner zone of Pacaya-Samiria in the Yanayacu-Pucate river basin (112 miles SW of Iquitos). The journey will prove to be interesting from the very beginning with a beautiful sight that will be revealed to your eyes. Endless greenery, blue sky with clouds of unusual shapes blend harmoniously with the chocolate-colored waters of the river; swarms of parrots, macaws and egrets flying from one side of the river to the other, further on a pink flash in the water reveals the presence of a “bufeo” or dolphin daring the boatmen to come closer for a better quick view.

Entrance to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve. Navigate the Yanayacu-Pucate River and immediately notice the change in color of the water; The rivers and lakes of the reserve are dark, almost black, limpid and still, thus having a reflection image effect that reproduces the beauty of the environment as if it were a mirror. There will be a brief stop to register at the Santo Domingo ranger station. Minutes later the boat will go to the camp following the course of the Yanayacu-Pucate.

Camping near the community of Arequipa. Approximately one hour of navigation within the reserve, tents will be erected on the river bank. While our staff prepares everything for a most rewarding rest and meal, you can take pictures of the stunning scenery or perhaps visit the nearby town and meet its inhabitants. Our expert cook will have a delicious dinner ready when you return to camp.
