Amazon Jungle Tours Without Borders 6 Days

We offer a new form of eco-tourism in the Amazon, an intense ecological tour that combines hiking, adventure, and sport fishing in the heart of the Peruvian jungle. In a space of 6 days we have the flexibility to do as many or few activities for longer or shorter periods based on your tastes (and the weather). This trip provides the greatest chances for sightings of the four types of monkeys, many reptiles and mammals, macaws and toucans, and even jaguars or tapirs that inhabit the jungle.

TOUR ROUTE

Amazon Jungle Tours Without Borders 6 Days

The route for this tour begins on day one in Cusco and heads to Salvacion Town. It’s a long day of around 11 hours of travel making various stops along the way, (minivan) with potholes, curves, tunnels and many spectacular views.

In addition we will travel by boat for another 2 hours passing through low forest and beautiful landscapes, rolling with the currents and rapids; the trip is part of the adventure!

ITINERARY

Day 01: Cusco - Cloud Forest - Salvacion

The journey begins in a minivan leaving the city of Cusco at 4:00 a.m., then making a brief stop in the historic town of Paucartambo, and at Acjanaco, the highest point and entrance to the National Park of the Manu. From here we will descend through the cloud forest and the lowland forest of the Amazon to reach the capital city of Salvacion.

Night walk in search of some alligators, amphibians, and the largest rodent in the world (capybara)

Overnight in local, comfortable accommodation.

Day 02: Salvacion – Machuwasy Lake – Posada Manu Rainforest

For today we have a very interesting visit to the Oxbow Lake. In this particular trek we’ll get to see a number of wildlife species such as the HOATZIN (loud prehistoric birds), oropendulas, and monkeys. We’ll then take our minivan by two hours to get to the banks of the river Alto Madre de Dios. Here we cross the river in a wooden boat to get to our hostel, Posada Manu Rainforest, for lunch and afternoon nature walks.

At night after dinner you can join the night hike which is part of the tour, or take in the sounds of the jungle with an early night’s sleep. At dusk in the Amazon, we will look for armadillos, and nocturnal monkeys that come to feed on bananas from the farms of the locals.

Day 03: Posada Manu Rainforest - Robles Tree House

Today we travel by boat 45 minutes up river, a time to watch and enjoy jungle activity from our private wooden boat, surrounded by beautiful landscape and tropical birds, monkeys, and with some luck animals crossing the river. Once in Robles Tree House Lodge we follow paths on our private network of trails for three hours looking for monkeys, peccaries, and some macaws in the treetops. Then we’ll enjoy a typical lunch of the jungle, always accompanied by a good glass of beer or other exotic drinks from the jungle of the Amazon. In the afternoon you can take a refreshing swim with a dip in the river Palotoa in its crystalline waters.

At night we offer the chance to go walking in search of nocturnal activity and spot tarantulas, snakes, frogs etc.

Overnight in Robles Tree House.

Day 04: Parrot Colpa - Trekking - Swimming

The Robles Ecological Reserve offers us the most important wildlife viewing activity of this tour to Manu at our private parrot colpa. (A colpa is a mineral rich clay wall that attracts animals who need to eat there to get essential minerals.) At 5 a.m. we wake up and gather to watch the colpa from our hide at 5:30 a.m., the best time to catch the birds and animals feeding there. Parrots, parakeets, macaws (Aras), (sometimes in the hundreds) feed on clay since it counteracts the toxins that eat in their daily diet day through their food.

In the afternoon after the lunch we will make excursions into primary and secondary forest, and into bamboo forests to find creatures in their natural habitat.

Overnight in Robles Tree House.

Day 05: Parrot and Macaw Colpa - Tubing – Posada Manu Rainforest

Once again we will have the chance to watch the dazzling activity of parrots and macaws at the clay lick. You will not tire of witnessing this wonderful show, and another chance to watch river otters coming to swim very early in the morning. Afterwards we enjoy breakfast in the wild and get ready to make that special trip downriver tubing! On this journey you’ll have a unique view of beautiful riverside panoramas. It’s relaxing and refreshing! We will arrive in the afternoon to our hostel and at night will provide a sparkling wine accompanied by popcorn to toast to our spectacular trip and then enjoy our last delicious dinner together.

Overnight in Posada Manu Rainforest.

Day 06: Manu Rainforest Lodge - Cusco

At 7:00 a.m. we have to leave to catch our transport back to Cusco, arriving at 5:00 p.m. We thank you for coming out to our special part of the jungle. We hope you will come back many times in the future!

The meeting point or pick up will be at your Cusco hotel, our Guide will meet you with our private minivan.

The tour begins and ends in the city of Cusco. If you're based outside of Cusco in Pisac, Urubamba or Ollantaytambo for example, you will be picked up much earlier to be brought to the city of Cusco to join the tour at its departure point. Please contact us to coordinate. This will have an additional cost, and schedule of pick up will be arranged.

Pick up time is bright and early, at 4:00 in the morning, to give us more time to enjoy the places of interest on the way. And, leaving early we also take advantage of the fresh morning to see more wildlife on the way. Leaving early we also avoid traffic and other tour groups crowding our way.

We normally run this tour from March to December (summer). For January and February, please inquire for availability as it is the rainy season and trips will be scheduled only when it is safe.
