Amazon Cruises Deep Jungle Three Frontiers
4 days 3 Nights
(From 6,050 USD)

Summary: The Amazon River Journey gives travelers a great insight on the flora and fauna of the rain forest, life in typical small Amazon River towns and cultures of its natives who still inhabit villages close to the shores of the mighty river. You will travel onboard a comfortable river vessel down the Amazon towards the border with Brazil and Colombia. Meals will all be served on board and accommodations are provided in air conditioned cabins. During the entire Journey you will disembark in several occasions each day to explore the river, lakes, the forest and life along the Amazon, always accompanied by bi-lingual Naturalist guides who will show and teach you
Intineray Day by Day:(B)= breakfast / (L)= lunch / (D)= dinner

Day 1 Saturday: Arrival to Iquitos. (D)
AM or PM - Upon arrival at the airport of Iquitos you will be welcomed by our local guide who will provide the transfer to your hotel. Check in and the remainder of the morning / afternoon at leisure in this friendly Amazon city.
EVE - Pick up from the hotel and transfer to a local restaurant for a great dinner. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 2 Sunday: Iquitos – Amazon River – Yanamono. (B, L, D)
AM - Breakfast at the hotel. Enjoy the morning hours in the city on your own. Take a stroll alongside the river or visit the floating city of Belen. You may also want to observe the weekly parade at the main square with participation of schools, companies, army, navy, police and other government’s agencies. Be prepared for a late morning pick up from the hotel for the transfer to the dock. Here you will board the "Rio Amazonas", your exploration vessel that will be your home for the next 6 nights. The cruise director will give a briefing on the safety procedures on board and the program for the next few days.
PM - Check into your air conditioned cabin while the ship departs down the Amazon River towards the border with Colombia and Brazil. The landscape will soon turn from buildings and shipyards to water and a shoreline of vast jungle and an occasional settlement on both sides of the vessel. Time and weather permitting we will make a stop at Yanamono to visit sugar cane rum still, followed by a short walk at Chameleon Island to observe the Victoria Regia water Lilies.
EVE - Dinner will be served and the crew may get together for some singing and storytelling on the moon deck.

Day 3 Monday: Amazon River – Ampiyacu River – Huitoto – Pebas – Shishita River. (B, L, D)
AM - Our guides will wake us up early in the morning for the first excursion of the day. After a fresh cup of coffee or tea we will board the skiffs and navigate away from the vessel up the Ampiyacu River for bird watching. Don't forget your cameras and binoculars. The early morning hours are the best time to observe birds preparing for their day. The guides will point out the many species of birds that find their habitat in this area. The guides will have the engines turned off at a remote site. Sit back and absorb the beauty of the area and the sounds of the surrounding rain forest. Times like this will remain in our memories forever. Return to the vessel for breakfast and maybe a shower.
Later in the morning we will visit two native settlements at the Bora and Huitoto villages. Natives from both tribes have been in contact with westerners for several years but still retain their culture and practice their rituals. The women of both tribes are involved with making handicrafts and will offer these to us on our visit. Later we will visit the town of Pebas, which is the oldest Peruvian town on the Amazon.
PM - Return back to the vessel for refreshments and lunch. After a morning full of activity we have some time to lean back and relax in a lounge chair or hammock on the sun deck, read a book or take a nap in our cabin. Later in the afternoon the crew will gather travelers for a jungle hike in the dense rain forest of the Shishita River area. Small groups, each with their naturalist guide, will head out into the forest to take advantage of the area where we have great opportunities to view wildlife.
EVE - Other than dinner on board, no activities are scheduled for the evening. A normal night on board consists of a get together at the area around the bar. We socialize with our fellow travelers and crew. People from around the world join on this trip and each individual has their own story. Travelers normally retire to their cabins rather early in preparation for the next day. The vessel will continue its voyage down the Amazon River.

Day 4 Tuesday: Amazon River – Paranaquiro – Caballococha – Amazon River. (B, L, D)
AM - After a healthy breakfast we prepare to disembark at Paranaquiro village from where we explore the forest. Regularly we will observe primates and macaws in the area. Our guides will explain about the trees and vines of the jungle and their use to locals and modern medicine. Several universities and study groups visit the region every year to set up research centers in the forest. On our way back to the vessel we will stop at a backwater lake for some Piranha fishing "Amazon style". With just a line, a hook and some meat we will catch this legendary fish just over the side of the skiffs.
PM - We will catch up with the exploration vessel, the Rio Amazonas, further down the river where lunch will be ready to be served. After our meal we will have some time to relax on board. The ship will turn up a tributary of the Amazon and through a narrow canal to the village of Caballococha. We will disembark for a brief visit of the village followed by a late afternoon boat excursion up the canal. Sunset is an amazing time of the day in the Amazon and many of our great photographs will be taken at this time. When the night sets we will cross a large lake to look for the Amazon caiman in the reedy shallows and listen to the sounds of the forest.
EVE - Return to the Rio Amazonas for dinner and a night at leisure.

Day 5 Wednesday: Amazon River – Three Frontiers – Santa Rosa – Leticia (Peru – Brazil – Colombia) (B, L, D)
AM - During the overnight hours the vessel has arrived at the "Three Frontiers". This is the point where Peru, Brazil and Colombia meet on the Amazon River. We will dock on the Peruvian side of the river at the island of Santa Rosa, opposite the small cities of Leticia (Colombia) and Tabatinga (Brazil). After breakfast there will be a boat transfer to the city of Leticia for a morning at leisure. Here we have a chance to visit the local zoo, the ethnic museum or shop for emeralds and local handicrafts in the many stores in both the Colombian and Brazilian side of the border (no visas required). At around noon we gather at a set place for the transfer back to our vessel where lunch is ready.
PM - From this point on our vessel will now head upstream, back towards Iquitos. After lunch the cruise director will give a briefing on the upcoming activities during the next few days. Enjoy a well-deserved afternoon at leisure onboard after a busy morning. Time permitting; the guides will organize a late afternoon or early evening shore excursion in the Cayaru river area.
EVE - Dinner on board and evening at leisure.

Day 6 Thursday: Amazon River – Chimbote – San Pablo – Peruare River. (B, L, D.)
AM - You may want to wake up early and observe a unique sunrise over the Amazon, an always incredible spectacle of colors. The sun deck is an ideal place to observe the changes between night and day. Breakfast will be served while the ship arrives at Chimbote for a document check. While the crew takes care of the formalities we board the shore boats to cross the river into an area where tributaries and lakes are covered with vegetation. This is a great place to observe the flora and fauna of the Amazon and our guides will take us up small tributaries and remote lakes for the best photo opportunities. After the vessel has cleared its routine document check it will slowly continue up the Amazon River where we will rendezvous with it.
PM - After lunch the vessel will dock at the small port of the village of San Pablo. We disembark for a short visit of the village where we get a chance to observe the friendly locals and their customs or maybe purchase some of their handicrafts. By mid afternoon we get back on board and leave the village behind us. The Rio Amazonas will head back upriver now in direction of the Peruate River.
EVE - Dinner will be served, followed by a night exploration by launch up the Peruate River to listen to the sounds of the jungle and spot Amazon caiman. The remainder of the night can be enjoyed on board.

Day 7 Friday: Amazon River – Yagua Villages – Apayacu River – Aazon River. (B, L, D.)
AM - In the morning hours, just after breakfast, the Rio Amazonas will arrive at a Yagua Indian village. We will disembark here and visit the village. Our guides will teach us about the customs, traditions and beliefs of this tribe. The men still hunt in the jungle while the woman stays in the village with the children. You may want to trade some of your manufactured goods for native handicrafts produced by the tribe.
PM - Lunch on board while the vessel sails upriver. Late afternoon we arrive at the Apayacu River where we will explore this beautiful black water river and its lakes. Like in many places of the Amazon River and its tributaries we can observe fresh water dolphins hunting for their prey in spots where two rivers meet.
EVE - Farewell dinner on board. Enjoy the evening with the guides and fellow travelers. The crew will join us for our last evening on board with some music.

Day 8 Saturday: Amazon River – Iquitos. (B.)
AM - Early morning arrival in the city of Iquitos. Say goodbye to new found friends and transfer to your local hotel or to the airport for your flight back to the big cities.
