itinerary

DAY 1: IQUITOS – AMAZON SINCHICUY LODGE

Arrival in Iquitos, our staff will be waiting for you at the airport, or if you are already in Iquitos, you will be picked up from the hotel. We will begin with an Iquitos city tour, we will observe the main tourist places of the city in eastern Peru. Transfer to the pier to start our boat trip to the Lodge. We will navigate the mightiest river in the world, the Amazon River, aboard comfortable and safe motorboats.

We will visit the Fundo Pedrito, in the Barrio Florido town. Here we will appreciate different species of local flora and fauna. We will appreciate the paiche, the largest fish in the Amazon, we will also see a breeding ground for lizards and piranhas.

After 45 minutes, we will be arriving at the Amazonas Sinchicuy Lodge. The lodge was built in the native style with natural materials and is surrounded by trees, plants and flowers, a tropical garden on high, non-floodable ground. Our staff will receive us with a pleasant welcome drink made with fruits from the region.

A brief explanation of the rules of our lodge in order to make your visit and participation in ecotourism activities more rewarding. Accommodation according to the chosen room.

Lunchtime. Our gastronomy at the lodge stands out because we use natural and fresh products produced by the river and the farm. Dorado fish fillets accompanied by Cocona sauce, regional vegetables, salads, beans, cassava and fried bananas, delicious stews that constitute yet another attraction of the jungle.

ECOCULTURAL CIRCUIT (Ecosystem of the Sinchicuy River Basin)

Hike or canoe ride (depending on the season) to “Nuevo Perú”, where the Yagua ethnic group is located, the Yagua ancestors were discovered by the Spanish Francisco de Orellana in his first exploration of the Amazon in 1541. This tour will let you learn about their ancestral customs, appreciate their original clothing made from palm fiber and also try aiming with the pucuna (blowgun), an instrument that the Yaguas have been using for centuries for hunting. We will continue with an ethnobotanical excursion. We will get to know very particular species of the plant kingdom.

Tour the Santa María del Ojeal farmlands, here we will observe some productive activities carried out by its inhabitants; fish farms with native species, cattle raising, fruit orchards. We will be able to interact with the inhabitants while we observe their typical houses, church, schools and shops.

Night Tour

When night arrive, the jungle allows us to enjoy unique sounds and sensations. Our guide will tell us the moment when we will start the excursion by canoe or on foot. By the light of a flashlight, we will observe the nocturnal world of insects, spiders, cicadas, etc. We will also hear the song of the owls and the “ayaymamas” interpreted as the language of fantastic beings in the local imagination.

To end the night, we will enjoy our delicious dinner. The guide will give us the details for the next day’s activities.

DAY 2: SINCHICUY LODGE – YANAYACU – GIANT TREES – SINCHICUY LODGE

Bird watching: It is done during the early hours of the morning (05:00 – 06:00 am).

Then we will enjoy our delicious breakfast. We will have fruit juices and jams produced in the region (orange, papaya, cocona, melon) dishes and hot drinks to start the morning.

After breakfast, we will board our boat that will take us to the opposite side of the Amazon or, as they say locally, “huashalado”.

We will observe pink dolphins, it is necessary to have some patience and be attentive to spot them, since by their nature, they are shy.

Arrival in  Huashalado, we will be able to observe plantations of cassava, papaya and other typical products of riverside agriculture.

By motorboat or canoe we will follow the course of the Yanayacu River to explore this area rich in avian fauna, whose species include: hawks, herons, kingfishers, etc. We will continue through the dark waters of the Yanayacu River until we arrive to our Lodge.

A hike through the jungle, will take us to know the Kingdom of the Giant Trees, we will see some species of medicinal plants such as the “Sachajergón”, the “tree bread”, the “ojé” and the well-known “cat’s claw”; it is also possible to find bromeliads growing high up in the trees. Of course, without a doubt, the one that provokes the greatest admiration, among the trees, is the “Lupuna” (Ceiba Pentandra) that can exceed 50 meters in height. Depending on the season and the weather, we will visit the Yaguacocha lagoon, where it is possible to see the representative aquatic plant, the “Victoria Regia” and the hoatzin or “shansho” (Opisthocomus hoatzin), a colorful species of bird that feeds on the aquatic flora. Return to the Lodge to enjoy a refreshing lunch.

Afternoon fishing. Using native techniques we will be able to fish piranhas, mullets, mojarras or other ichthyological species. After this adventure, we will return to the Lodge. We will have time to rest in the hammocks, in the viewpoint or in the Clavohuasca Bar, cooling off with a pleasant ice-cold drink or experiencing different sensations with a regional aphrodisiac drink. We will also have some canoes available to be able to take hie¿kes on the Sinchicuy river to capture an image of a beautiful sunset. Dinner and overnight.

DAY 3: AMAZON – SINCHICUY LODGE – IQUITOS

After a comforting breakfast, our guide will invite us to participate in the “Plant a Tree” project in the reforestation area near the lodge.

We will visit the “Rony” Artisan Center, here we will appreciate the artisanal extraction of sugar cane juice. We will also find the local naturist, an expert in the secrets of nature and its application for the treatment of ills of the body and spirit. The naturist will explain about the wonderful properties and the use that some plants and roots have.

Observation of a variety of wild animals found in semi-captivity, such as: monkeys, sloths, macaws, toucans, boas, lizards and achunis.

Excellent - keep it going The more that is said about this team is definitely less. Jhon and I had been in touch for the last six months to draw this trip and since then to now when it is in conceptualisation it has been top notch professional with a touch of personal with them checking on my well-being etc. Abel came in once I arrived at Lima and since then has been my support. Guys this is a tour operator must to be considered. Infact I have met so many in Cusco who asked me of my trip details and I have no hesitations in recommending them. Bravo

Ótimo passeio! Fizemos o passeio para Machu Picchu e tudo foi incrível, nós buscaram no horário combinado no hotel, o carro e motorista eram ótimos. Eles cuidaram de reservar as passagens de trem e ônibus e os ingressos para vista à Machu Picchu e tudo saiu perfeito. O guia da vista também foi excelente, muito atencioso e solicitou, além de ótimo fotografo. Tudo foi impecável!

Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)
