Jungle Adventures Tours in Peru
Newly named Natural Patrimony of the Earth, the Amazon River and its surroundings, are one of the least explored and most attractive territories of Peru- that is to say the Amazon forest with its rainforests and the green mountains of the jungle. The trip to the different places that this area offers is a challenge that is facilitated by having the necessary services and amenities at your fingertips. Extensive and plentiful rivers, high waterfalls (like the one in Gotca which is the third in the world) and primary forests that keep nature intact are the main course of this trip. Prepare to venture into a more than unforgettable experience.
The Manu National Park hosts a commendable biodiversity, so much so, that biologists and naturists from all over the world spend months each year researching the variety of birds and mammals without forgetting the beauty of its flora with an extensive variety of orchids. With more than 2 million hectares and diverse ecological levels that go from the forest of clouds and low jungle, the Manu is a wonderful place. To illustrate this, when they asked a Biology Nobel Prize winner Seville, 2000, what was the most important area to preserve on the planet, he answered without hesitation: El Manu.
Tambopata, the river that flows into the Madre de Dios right in the city of Maldonado (capital of the department of Madre de Dios) houses a series of lodgings distributed on its banks. With a biological diversity as extensive as that of Manu, Tambopata has become a destination appreciated by those who enjoy nature.
Iquitos, the largest city in the Peruvian Amazon jungle, was considered "La Perla del Amazonas" (The Pearl of the Amazon) back in 1920, the rubber boom era. It has beautiful buildings among which the Fierro house (built by Gustave Eiffel, the same as the Eiffel Tower of Paris) and is the starting point for many excursions that go into the rivers Itaya, Nanay, Momón and Amazonas. These excursions are appreciated for the possibility of seeing the pink Amazon dolphin and for visiting the areas of Pacaya Samiria, an impressive national park. Iquitos has lodges of every style from some 5 stars with canopy over the floodplain forest, to rustic lodges in the middle of the jungle that invite us to walk through the Amazon jungle.
