The Mighty Jungle
Our planet’s lungs, the Amazon rainforest, stretches over 2 million square miles (5.2 million sq. km) of South America. It’s the most biodiverse place on earth. It’s teeming with incredible wildlife, with many species yet to be discovered.
Visiting the Peruvian Amazon
The Amazon covers 60% of Peru. For the most unforgettable Peru Amazon adventure, Good Life Expeditions takes you to a choice of two recommended destinations:
In the north, fly to Iquitos, the largest city in the world inaccessible by road. It’s a gateway to the pristine rainforest. From here, we offer Amazon cruises that take you deep into the Amazon jungle, along its waterways. Journey upriver aboard one of the four vessels recommended by Good Life Expeditions.
With comfortable accommodations, gourmet food, and excellent guidance, this is one of the best ways to experience a Peruvian Amazon adventure while covering an impressive distance. Your expert guide will take you on hikes through terra firma, the tributaries, and ox-bow lakes aboard small canoes each day. There’s even the chance to go swimming with the famous Amazon pink river dolphins.
In the south, start your Peru Amazon adventure by flying to Puerto Maldonado. Flights are available from Lima and Cusco, making this a great addition to a trip to Machu Picchu. From here, you’ll travel by bus and motorized canoe upriver, slowly leaving civilization behind, to one of our three recommended Amazon lodges.
With expert guides, you’ll spend each day exploring the rainforest on foot. Canoe in search of the incredible flora and fauna of the jungle. You’ll spot howler monkeys, wild peccaries, sloths, and strange creepy crawlies by night. Keep your eyes peeled along the riverbanks for a sight of the majestic, elusive jaguar!
