Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge

7 DAYS/6 NIGTHS

DAY I: IQUITOS/LODGE

We begin our Peruvian jungle adventure at the Iquitos City Airport. From there we will journey 60 miles to the town of Nauta, the first town ship founded by the Spanish at the Marañón River. The trip to Nauta takes about an hour and a half with a distance of97km. In Nauta, we will visit theSapiSapi pond where we can see species such as the paiche (largest Amazonian fish), arawana, quelonios (taricaya, charapa), and regional turtle, as well as a brief story at the Centenary Square.

From Nauta, we will board our boats to Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge; we will receive a warm welcome with a seasonal fruit drink, and a presentation in the KukamaKukamirialanguage by a tribe member. You will be invited to go to your rooms to leave luggage and then have lunch.  In the afternoon we will go for a walk where we will identify flora and fauna in the forest surrounding the Lodge. We will return at night to try to locate the demdrobates, tiny poison-dart frogs characterized by their bright colors. At the lodge we will have time for personal hygiene, dinner and overnight.

DAY II: PACAYA SAMIRIA NATIONAL RESERVE/LODGE

After breakfast we will go to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, with a cold lunch on board, to an area called “NautaCaño”. During our excursion we will search for pink and gray freshwater dolphins near the gorge of the same name. We will also be immersed in the wide variety of flora and fauna the reserve offers. The first thing that will call your attention is how the river water perfectly reflects the sky, clouds, vegetation and large trees along the river banks. Visitors will have the sensation of sailing between endless mirrors, which is why PacayaSamiria is also known as “the forest of mirrors”.

We will also go for a walk through the flooded forests, where we will try to see some primates and sloths. During the journey we can also observe a variety of birds and the traditional Amazonian subsistence fishing practice.

Next, we will return to the Lodge to visit the women’s crafts center (seasonal) of the San Jorge community, known for their work with natural Chambira fiber and Wingoor pumpkin carving. You will have down time, followed by dinner.

After dinner a guide will invite us to move to a different space to share myths and legends of the Peruvian Amazon.

DAY III: HIKING IN HIGH RESTINGA /LODGE

After breakfast we will go hiking through the jungle where we can see a variety of timber-yielding trees and birds native to this forest. We will also try to see some primates and mammals as we journey toward a rustic camp to rest in hammocks. Cold lunch.  If you desire, enjoy the refreshing water of a high gorge, where the guide will explain the importance of its existence and the role it plays in the ecosystem.  We will return to the Lodge around noon to rest. 

In the afternoon there will be a presentation about “The Amazonian World View”, in particular the usage of medicinal plants and ayahuasca, followed by dinner.

DAY IV: LODGE / PACAYA SAMIRIA NATIONAL RESERVE

Breakfast.

Immediately after we go camping within the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, Cuenca Yanayacu Pucate, where we register in PV Santo Domingo.

During this visit we also sail on black water and visit the Veinte de Enero community, where the Guide explains about resource management carried out by local groups, palm management, Taricaya and fishery resources, also we will be in touch with the immense variety of flora and fauna that the reserve offers.

At noon we stop for a while to have a cold lunch.

We visit the Japon and Plantano lagoons, both with a variety of palms, trees and a beautiful scenery; then we arrive to a flooded area in Restinga, where we set up camp, walk looking for more animals or may prefer to cool off in the water of Yanayacu.
