25 Oct 20

Puerto Maldonado

Welcome to Puerto Maldonado, Peru. A lodge representative will welcome you at the airport, but it's imperative that you inform of us your arrival flight details into Puerto Maldonado at least 15 days prior to the start of the trip.

You'll then head to the Amazon lodge's office in town (approximately 15 minutes by van), where you'll pack the necessary gear in a duffle bag provided by the lodge for the next few days. The remainder of your belongings will be securely stored in the office. Depending on your arrival time, you may have up to two hours free in Puerto Maldonado, while the rest of the travellers in your group arrive.

From here, travel by bus or motorised canoe to the Amazon lodge. Once you arrive at the lodge there is time to unpack and unwind before an afternoon walk to the Canopy Tower (30 meter scaffolding canopy tower gives you spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest and the Tambopata River. You will have good chances of spotting toucans, parrots and macaws from here. After dinner, head out into the jungle for a night walk with your guide! Hotel: Posada Amazonas Lodge or similar (D)

26 Oct 20

Amazon Lodge

Wake at dawn to the sound of bird calls and travel by boat and foot to the oxbow lake after breakfast. Cruise around the lake and keep an eye out for turtles, hoatzin and other local species of birds. In the afternoon, venture out on a jungle walk, keeping an eye out for wildlife while learning from a local guide about the many resources the Amazon provides, from medicine to construction and food. Head back to the lodge later in the day where you're free to relax. Hotel: Posada Amazonas Lodge or similar (B/L/D) 

27 Oct 20

Puerto Maldonado

Rise early this morning and head out after breakfast to visit the Parrot Clay Lick, which is around 20 minutes' walk from the lodge. From an observation spot located about twenty metres away, you should see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on the river bank. Afterwards, and before lunch, hike through the Ceiba Trail to see the largest tree in the vicinity. In the afternoon, visit a working farm in the community of Infierno. Your evening is the free.  Hotel: Posada Amazonas Lodge or similar (B/L/D)
