Book This Trip

Day 1ː

Arrive in Iquitos and be transported to Nauta. From Nauta, you will travel by boat for approximately 5 hours and arrive in the Tamshiacu Yanayacu Reserve. That night, you will stay in a basecamp.

Day 2ː

After breakfast, you will pack your bags and begin your hike to Yarina Lake, enjoying a 3-hour hike and tour through the Amazon jungle. On this hike, you will see various types of monkeys, birds, snakes, and various other local creatures. Along the way, your guide will show you how to locate drinkable water in native vines. In addition, your guide will locate and describe many medicinal plants and their uses.

When you arrive at the lake, you will continue your learning experience by foraging for food.

Afterward, the local guide will teach you to build your own natural weapons, such as spears, harpoons, and blowguns so that you can hunt and catch your food. (You will camp for 2 days at the Lake and will continue your learning experience.)

Day 3ː

Enjoy another day of learning survival skills with your guide. Camp overnight at Lake Yarina.

Day 4ː

Wake up at Lake Yarina and enjoy breakfast.

After breakfast, we’ll begin our trek back to the basecamp.

Your boat will be waiting to take you back to Nauta. From there, you will then be transported to Iquitos.
