Location of Adventure

Our Private Leaders

Not Included

Physical Requirements
Easy 
This program does not require a high degree of physical fitness, as much of our wildlife viewing is done from small motorized skiffs. Getting in and out of the skiffs can sometimes feel a bit unsteady, especially with the current of the river. Some excursions involve walking on nature trails through the rain forest. Guests must be able to walk at least 1.5 miles in high humidity over uneven ground with overgrown roots, in order to participate in all excursions. One trail excursion also requires ascending and descending around 100 steps. Walking on muddy trails or through standing water may be necessary at times. Guests are not required to participate in all activities.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip spends a full week exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, the largest protected area in Peru at 8,000 square miles. Located at the headwaters of the Amazon River where the two major tributaries meet to form the mighty main river, the remote region is home to some of the densest populations of wildlife in the entire Amazon rainforest, including threatened or endangered species such as jaguar, black alligator, giant river otter and manatee. Few Amazon cruises offer this much time or depth in the reserve.

Please Note: This itinerary is meant to be a guideline. Activities may vary at different times of year according to water level and conditions.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrival for May and June trips: Arrive in Lima anytime on Day 1.
Arrival for October and November trips: Arrive in Lima by 4 pm for orientation dinner beginning at 7 pm on Day 1.
Departure for all trips: Depart from Lima after 10 pm on Day 9.

Generally, international flights depart Lima in the late evening. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
