Peru Amazon Tours
Peru not only contains the second largest piece of Amazon Rainforest after Brazil, but also the birthplace of the Amazon River itself, Nevado Mismi, a mountain in the Peruvian Andes. Peru Amazon tours explore the rich headwaters and surrounding pristine lowland rainforest of this mighty meandering force of nature, areas teeming with birdlife, sunbathing caimans, and playful capuchin monkeys.
In Peru’s northern province of Loreto near Iquitos, witness a “Jungle Of Mirrors” as you navigate the still waters of the protected Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, a haven for pink river dolphins, aboard a luxurious Peru Amazon river cruise. Near Puerto Maldonado to the south, few places on earth can match Amazon lodge stays amidst the magic of Manu National Park, a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site and refuge to some 850 species of birds and more than 200 species of mammals, or shimmering Sandoval Lake deep in the Tambopata National Reserve, home to giant otters, armadillos and the elusive jaguar. For the ultimate wildlife tours in Peru, look no further than a trip to the Peruvian Amazon.
