Bookings now open


Starting in the magical town of Pisaq, you make your way across the two ranges of the Andes stopping at local villages and exploring along the way. You enter the cloud forest and look for the famous cock-of-the-rock bird with its vibrant red plumage. Then plunge into the vast Amazon basin and the Manu Biosphere. You make your way by canoe to the Manu Learning and Research Centre to collaborate with the scientists working there and later the Manu Wildlife Centre, always on the look out for fabulous and exotic plants and animals. Amazing!

The great Amazon River basin is vast with an area of 5.4 million, about 70% of the area of Australia. Its humble beginnings are in a freshwater spring in an alpine marsh high in the Andes near Cusco in Peru. It draws its water from nine countries on its way to the Atlantic Ocean in far off Brazil.

The river travels through diverse ecosystems, from the mountain marshes through cloud forest, lowland tropical forest and rainforest jungle, just to name a few. A drop of water takes 6 weeks (on average) to travel 6516 km from source to mouth.  You’ll travel on part of this great journey.

You travel in a small group, escorted by trusted local naturalist guides.
