Day 1 Iquitos / Amazon River

Aria Amazon Exterior
Overview:

Be met at Iquitos International Airport before enjoying lunch together at a local restaurant or you will be served a box lunch en route, depending on the flight arrival time. The afternoon continues with an introduction to this historic city and the opportunity to meet an indigenous Amazon community. At 6:00pm you will board the magnificent Aria Amazon. Settle into your generously proportioned suite as you begin one of life’s greatest adventures. Following a routine safety drill and introduction to your naturalist guides, gather for innovative Amazonian cuisine created by the Executive Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, whose restaurant, Malabar, is the one of Lima’s top ranked dining experiences.

Day 2 Amazon River, Yarapa River, Nauta Caño

Aqua Expeditions - Mirrored Forest

Aboard Aria Amazon’s comfortable skiffs, set sail from the Amazon River to the Yarapa River. Keep your binoculars ready to spot tropical songbirds, black collared hawks and sloths. Go fishing for Amazonia’s notoriously ferocious piranhas while the naturalist guides share stories of Lake Moringo. As the sun sets, head off on an evening’s wildlife excursion with extraordinary stargazing on the black waters of Nauta Caño.

Day 3 Amazon River – Marañon River, Jungle Walk, Yanayacu-Pucate River

Sloth

Rise with the sun for early morning birdwatching along the Marañon River. After breakfast, take a jungle walk on the firm soil forest “Casual,” while looking for flora and fauna which include medicinal trees, insects, and poison dart frogs, and learning more about the different rainforest stratas. Later, swim, canoe or kayak in Yanayacu Pucate River as you look for legendary pink river dolphins. Focus the hi-tech telescope on the night sky to identify the planets and constellations. This evening before dinner, the boat will gather to introduce you to some of the crewmembers whom you may not have met, working “behind the scenes” to ensure your countless exceptional experiences aboard the Aria Amazon.

Day 4 Nauta Town, Manatee Rescue Centre, transfer to the Airport

Manatee

This morning, visit the local fresh market with your guides who can identify the day’s catch by the fishermen of Amazonia and the region’s exotic fruits. Return to the Aria for breakfast and to pack up. Before saying goodbye, visit the Manatee Rescue Center, a kind of animal orphanage for Amazonian manatees to rescue, rehabilitate and release them back into the wild. You will also visit San Juan craft market on route to the airport.

We will tailor the perfect holiday to suit your needs.
