Nature expeditions in Peru don’t come better than this as you immerse yourself in the mystery of the Amazon rainforest on the ultimate 7-day Amazon safari tour. Enjoy a thrilling treetop stay and sail the mighty Amazon River as you experience the bewildering biodiversity and stunning scenery that this unique ecosystem has to offer.
A Treehouse Adventure
Your Peruvian nature expedition begins the minute you arrive in Iquitos, one of the larger cities in the Amazon, and transported to your accommodations in the rainforest canopy. The Treehouse Lodge literally puts you in the trees for a one-of-a-kind experience. Built with sustainability in mind, this eco-friendly accommodation sits amidst 345 acres of pristine jungle reserve.
You’ll stay in one of the 12 treehouse suites available, all soaring between 25 and 75 feet above the ground. Waking up (and going to sleep) to the sounds of the chirruping canopy is truly special, and meandering along the wooden pathways and steel cable bridges between your treehouse lodgings and the social areas is thrilling and a great opportunity to spot the wildlife all around you.
Gather in the communal lodge, with its massive beams of ironwood encased in mosquito netting, to enjoy spectacular meals. The first level of the lodge contains the dining area, and the upper level has a comfortable lounge where you can spend time relaxing in between activities. You can choose which adventures to indulge in, selecting from jungle walks, dolphin watching, piranha fishing, and visits to nearby communities to learn about local traditions and culture.
Amazon River Cruise
After two nights in your treehouse, it’s time to head to your next nature-infused adventure, an Amazon safari tour on water aboard your luxurious floating accommodations for the next four nights, the Delfin I.
During your cruise, you’ll spend the majority of your onboard time up on the covered observation deck with its inviting lounge and bar enjoying panoramic views of the rainforest, or dining on exotic five-star cuisine in the vessel’s intimate dining room. This boutique Amazon riverboat holds just eight passengers and offers exceptional service and some of the most stunning suites on the river, not least the luxurious lower deck Deluxe Suites which each have their own private terrace and plunge pool.
One reason this nature expedition is so unique is because of your journey into the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, one of the best-preserved and protected areas of the Amazon. Here you will experience some of the most extreme biodiversity on the planet. As you navigate deep into this remote realm, your bilingual naturalist guides will share their extensive knowledge of the area. See how many birds you can identify and observe various other creatures of the Amazon, like slow-moving sloths and various species of monkey.
Exceptional photo opportunities abound throughout, so be sure to always have your camera ready as you join various excursions, including a walk on the suspended Canopy Walkway, a thrilling kayak adventure, and a visit to a hidden lagoon. You’ll also have the chance to visit a secluded Amazonian village, which rarely sees visitors, and learn about shamanism.
Immersing yourself in this incredible natural habitat is an experience you won’t soon forget, even after you return to Iquitos for your flight home.
