Amazon Jungle Tours Itinerary

Amazon Jungle Tours of Iquitos and Leticia

All are welcome on our two centre 14 day escorted Amazon jungle tours of the high Amazon. From Iquitos you will journey the Nanay, Amazon, Ucayali and Maranon rivers, natural lagoons and get amongst the forest giants walking through rain forest. With beaches at hand for relaxation and comfortable hotels and lodges at the end of each day, our Amazon jungle tours allow you to take in the wonders of the rainforest and the rivers at a pace that suits you.

After 5 days we move on to Leticia a small border town from where we can journey to the remote and unspoilt Amacayacu and the pristine Zacambu Riverine forest park.

As you travel out of Leticia the jungle starts only about 2 km from the centre, this makes access to the rain forest very easy. We take a trip to an observation platform and spend a day in the forest particularly rich in beautiful butterflies. We visit a Maloca and we also visit working indigenous communities.

Stay overnight in the jungle if you wish.

South America is famous for its vibrant culture, and the people are well known for being very friendly and welcoming. Enjoy the hospitality and if you are the outgoing type try dancing the Merengue, Salsa, Lambada or Mambo!

Join us for one of our 14 day Amazon Jungle tours of Iquitos and Leticia leaving regularly February to November.
