  • We begin our Peruvian jungle adventure at the Iquitos City Airport. From here we will journey 60 miles to the town of Nauta, the first township founded by the Spanish at the Marañón River bank. The trip to Nauta takes about an hour and a half.
  • From Nauta, we will board Hatuchay Hotel boats and sail toward the junction of the Ucayali and Marañón Rivers, to observe the origin of the Amazon River. Along the way, we will have the chance to spot herons, birds of prey and, depending on the season, other birds along the river banks, such as the Black Skimmer. When we arrive, we will check into the lodge and have lunch.
  • In the afternoon, we will take a walk around the surrounding jungle, ending up at a lookout point, enabling us to readily observe birds in the canopy of trees. We should be able to see the Paradise Tanager, the Hooded Tanager, the Masked Tanager, the purple-throated Cotinga, as well as a variety parrots, including the yellow-winged Parakeet, the Short-Tailed Parrot, and if we are lucky, macaws.
  • Later we will return to the lodge to rest and have dinner.


  • After breakfast, we will sail across the Marañón River to explore the PACAYA SAMIRIA NATIONAL RESERVE for a couple of days. We will enter through the Yanayacu River basin, an area recently opened to tourists, abundant in birds (around 400 different species have been documented), and rich in flora and fauna. We will also be able to observe pink and grey fresh water dolphins, turtles, different primate species, sloths, etc. We will stop to enjoy a cold lunch in the shade and then continue with our excursion.
  • Among the birds we will have the opportunity to see are several types of kingfishers, like the Amazon green-ringed Rufous Kingfisher, and the spectacular American pygmyl kingfisher, wattled jacanas and anhingas. We will see tanagers, chestnut-eared aracari, crimson-crested qoodpeckers, spangled cotinga, lemon-throated barbet, white-eared jacamar, and black-capped donacobius. We will boat through lagoons and rivers hidden by vegetation, walk along open paths in the middle of the jungle, looking for the shouting unicorn, marsh hawks, storks, pink spoonbills, the black-tailed anteater, black-necked cotinga, gray-cheeked nunlet, bar-breasted piculet, tropical gnatcatcher and the yellow-billed Jacamar, among many others.
  • During our trek, we will visit the native Yarina Community, where we can observe the lifestyle and daily activities of the people; we can also support the community development by purchasing typical souvenirs hand made by the natives, from seeds and an ivory vegetable called tagua .
  • Our accommodation during this portion of the trip in the Pacaya Samira National Reserve will be in tents, where we will eat and sleep. At night, guests have the option of walking with a guide in search of owls, night birds and black Caymans.
  • On the fourth day, after breakfast, we will head back to the lodge. Once we arrive, lunch will be served, and the afternoon is free to rest or walk in the surrounding jungle. At the end of the day, we will have dinner and rest.


  • As soon as the sun is up, and after breakfast, we will embark on our return to Nauta. There, a vehicle will be waiting for us, and will drive us to the Allpahuallo Mishana National Reserve located 12.5 miles from the city of Iquitos. For two days, we will explore the reserve looking for birds, some of them newly studied, and different from those of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve such as the ancient anteater, Mishana tyralunnet, Allpahuayo anteater and northern chestnut-tailed anteater, in addition to other species like the gray-legged tinamou (Nov-Sea), rufous potoo, cinnamon-crested spadebill, pompadour cotinga and the cinnamon tyrant-manakin, among others.
