Overview

A LIFE CHANGING AMAZON RAINFOREST EXPERIENCE

The Amazon rainforest is one of the natural treasures of the planet. Through this ALL INCLUSIVE tour where your dreams become reality, you will discover the greatness of nature on the one hand, but also its extreme fragility on the other. This tour is designed for lovers of adventure, scenic beauty and legendary animals.

You will be in direct contact with indigenous people of millenary cultures, and also spend your nights in amazing eco-lodges lost in the middle of the jungle.

We work with a local agency for many years now. The tour is the most exclusive you can find, as you will spend your entire time with a guide that grew up in this forest and knows all its secrets. Moreover, the guides have gained the trust of local communities over the years, this allows them to take you in villages and natural reserves where no one else can go.

The tour will be divided into 4 nights and 5 days. Throughout the experience, you will be able to cross the three borders (Colombia, Peru and Brazil), see legendary animals (sloths; monkeys; dolphins; birds, crocodiles…), walk through a luxuriant nature and giant plants.

The local team will pick you up at your arrival at the airport, and stay with you until the last day. You will never be alone!

* The duration of the tour and the itinerary can be adapted to your convenience. Contact us and we will figure out the best options.
