Itinerary

Puerto Maldonado Amazon Budget Eco-Lodge 6D/5N (from Cuzco)

Day 1: Cuzco - Puerto Maldonado, Peru

After a day at leisure in Cuzco, we'll pick you up to bring you to the local bus station where you'll catch your overnight bus to Puerto Maldonado.

Night bus to Puerto Maldonado
At night (around 8:00pm), you'll be transferred to the local bus station to take the regular overnight bus towards the city of Puerto Maldonado. Our guide will give you the bus tickets.

Day 2: Puerto Maldonado - Amazon, Peru

Take a motorized canoe to your Amazon lodge and head out to explore jungle trails between the roots of towering trees. Tonight, you'll embark on a river night watch.

Get settled into your Amazon Lodge (L/D)
Begin your exciting Amazon adventure in Puerto Maldonado, coined the capital of biodiversity. Cruise the serpentine Madre de Dios River for 50-minutes to reach this amazing Amazon lodge, nestled within Peru's first ever private ecological reserve. Surrounded by pristine nature kick back in your palm thatched wooden cabana or pavilion to soak up the sounds of the rainforest, ready to discover what lies beyond your jungle base. You'll explore exclusive jungle trails that snake between the roots of towering trees for an immersive introduction to the rich ecosystems of the rainforest. A staggering 540 bird species, 362 ant species (a world record!) and over 100 mammal species have all been registered within the lodge's ecological reserve. Tonight, you'll embark on a river night watch. Cruise the Madre de Dios River at night in search of wildlife that roams the riverbanks under darkness. Keep on the lookout for the likes of nightjars, owls, capybaras and caimans as you learn about the curious behavior and characteristics of this nocturnal world.

Day 3: Amazon, Peru

Explore the exhilarating Canopy Walkway in the morning. Later, you'll visit an uninhabited river island close to the lodge to spot rare birds.

Amazon Discovery (B/L/D)
Climb the exhilarating Canopy Walkway for an unforgettable opportunity to observe the rainforest from its rooftop. Originally designed for scientific research, a sophisticated network of seven suspension bridges are strung between eight treetop observation platforms over 30 metres (100 feet) above the forest floor, with the jungle stretching out beneath you. Afterwards, you'll take a 20-minute boat ride to an uninhabited river island close to the lodge where you can see the striking contrast of vegetation within the transition rainforest. Pull up to the large sandbank island and walk through jungle trails on this floodplain which provides the island with an ecosystem rich in birdlife, including the Amazonian umbrellabird, one of the most sought-after species by birdwatchers. There's also an option to swap this river activity with a visit to Lake Sandoval (additional fee applies) where you'll hike a boardwalk jungle trail to Lake Sandoval, a glassy ox-bow lake tucked inside the protected Tambopata National Reserve. Here, you'll board a dug-out canoe to paddle through eerie mangroves and glide out onto the palm-flanked lake, home to thousands of bird species as well as anacondas, black caimans, yellow spotted side-neck turtles, red howler monkeys and two endangered (and elusive) families of giant river otters.

Day 4: Amazon, Peru

Discover the Amazon's otherworldly wetlands, then visit an organic bio-orchard to discover many of the rainforest's tropical plants up-close. You'll then visit the Palmetum before going for an exciting night walk.

Amazon Discovery (B/L/D)
Discover the Amazon's otherworldly realm of aguajales rainforest swampland, following a 200metre (656 feet) walkway through this diverse ecosystem. Learn how vegetation has adapted to this atmospheric natural habitat and the exotic species of amphibians, reptiles, snakes, birds and mammals that are drawn here. We'll then visit an organic bio-orchard to discover many of the rainforest's tropical plants up-close, with a chance to learn about their many intriguing medicinal uses by indigenous communities. After that, you'll explore our -30hectare Palmetum, a collection of 19 Amazonian palms in a plot reserved for rainforest restoration and conservation. Uncover some of the creative mechanisms plants and trees have adapted to survive in the rainforest and appreciate the characteristics and cultural meaning of trees within the Palmetum, such as the yarina (vegetable ivory) or the walking palm, which cleverly moves its roots in search of sunlight. Tonight, you'll boldly venture out at night to discover some of the strange species that come alive under deep darkness in the Amazon. Wildlife activity greatly differs between day and night, as some creatures curl up and sleep while others employ ingenious adaptation mechanisms to emerge. Stroll quietly as your senses heighten to the mysterious nocturnal sounds of birds, mammals, insects and amphibians wondering close by.
