The AMAZON CROSSING EXPEDITION 3D/2N is undoubtedly the smaller dose of how much disconnected and how far away you can possibly be from civilization in just a short period of time, this is an express trip for visitors with a tight schedule, maximizing what we can in just a few days, an extensive navigation and crossing of many rivers including the mighty Amazon River, focused on the exploration of fauna and flora, as well as other jungle activities including; camping, hiking, boating, fishing and more. The 5 rivers we all get to cross are: Marañón, Ucayali, Yarapa, Tahuayo and the Amazon River at the very end, finally arriving back to Iquitos along a path different from where it initially started.
