Extend your time in Peru with a visit to Reserva Amazonica. Exotic, yet accessible, our luxury ecolodge is situated in a private reserve, surrounded by a vast jungle canopy. See more butterflies than any other place on earth, as well as orchids, toucans, monkeys and sloths. Wake to a symphony of tropical birdsong; end your days by lantern light, falling asleep to the gentle night noise of the Amazon rainforest. Adjacent to the lush Tambopata National Reserve, where the Madre de dios River meanders through the Southern Peru rainforest region, you’ll find a pristine, remote, yet easily accessible haven only a 25-minute flight from Cusco. It's an addition to your Peru experience that you won't soon forget!
As we wind our time together on the Peru and Machu Picchu tour, we’ll return you to Cusco, for an afternoon and evening at your leisure. Relax and replay your images of the last week; you have a memorable couple of days ahead!
DAY 2 – PUERTO MALDONADO
A morning transfer to Cusco airport precedes a short flight to Puerto Maldonado. On arrival, you will be met by an Inkaterra representative and led on a visit to the butterfly farm, where you’ll see more varieties than anywhere else on earth. This being the Amazon, we make our way to our luxury ecolodge by boat, journeying along the scenic Madre de Dios River. As we arrive at the lodge, we settle into the beautiful cabañas and enjoy lunch.
Later in the afternoon we start a guided walk along the fine trail system and enjoy our first twilight river excursion. Dinner is back at the lodge, sharing stories of our first day in the rainforest.
DAY 3 – AMAZON RESERVE
After breakfast, a 30-minute boat ride takes us to Tambopata National Reserve, where wildlife surrounds us as we enjoy an easy one and a half hour walk to Lake Sandoval. Here we glide in wooden canoes across a beautiful, mirror-smooth lake that’s home to the endangered giant river otter, as well as red howler monkeys, macaws and side-neck turtles.
Midday, we return to the lodge for lunch before we spend the afternoon seeing a completely different view on the rainforest. We literally walk through the treetops for one and a half hours along suspension bridges that link eight observation platforms. Enjoy landscapes and vistas that would be unimaginable from below, while on the look-out for giant strangler fig trees, orchids, toucans, woodpeckers, trogons, monkeys and sloths.
DAY 4 – LIMA
A final breakfast riverside precedes a return trip by boat to Puerto Maldonado and flight to Lima before your evening flight back to the US.
