Physical Requirements
Easy / Moderate / Flexible
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 be a bit unsteady with the current of the river. Some walks will be available on forested nature trails, and guests should be able to walk 1-2 miles in high humidity over uneven ground with overgrown roots, in order to participate in all excursions. Walking on muddy trails or through standing water may be necessary at times. Passengers 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.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Lima anytime on Day 1 and depart after 11:30 pm from Lima 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.
