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.

IMPORTANT TIPS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR TRIP:

  • BOOKING IN ADVANCED IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (for collection of personal information, government access permits to protected areas, transportation arrangements, assignment of the exploration team, English Speaking Guides availability, and all logistics support needed).

  • Be advised that you are booking a PRIVATE TRIP on this page, and since this trip belongs to you and your group only, we'll be open for adjustments as far as the start and ending time of your trip. This way we can make travel easier for you or group based on your flight schedule.
