Amazon Canoe Adventure Trip

Hi, my name is Edgar and I would like to invite you to join me on my Amazon Canoe Adventure. Most people who come to visit the Amazonian jungle in Peru typically choose to stay in posh jungle lodges. Each day they take part in various organized activities such as: jungle walks, fishing, as well as bird and animal watching. This type of domesticated tourist experience is fine for some people, but it’s not truly representative of the Amazon and it will not satisfy those with a thirst for real adventure or those who prefer to get off of the beaten track. I want to provide an experience that will satisfy those more adventurous people, while doing something that is truly unique. This is something that no one else is currently offering in Iquitos. Just me and my friend Miguel Angel Brandan Gomez (tour operator) Therefore, I’ve decided to do a wonderful canoe adventure that will provide you with a unique and adventurous experience of the real Amazon.

Amazing experience in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest Join us on an Amazing Canoe Adventure and make your Amazon Jungle experience truly unforgettable! The experience is to go jungle trekking and river kayaking in the Amazon Basin. Trip Overview 3 to 5 days on the Yarapa River in traditional dugout canoes Length of trip can be customized to your schedule. 4 to 5 hours canoe travel each day. (approximately 7am-12pm) base camp accommodation is possible for the first and last nights. We will be camping in tents on the riverbank every other night. (all equipment provided) Afternoon activities include: jungle treks, fishing, wildlife/bird watching, visiting jungle villages. And learning about the real Amazon.

Professional and fluent English speaking jungle guides are always available.

This part of the YARAPA river is teaming with wildlife and it is not unusual to see the Giant Amazon Otters at play. Primates, birdlife and rodents abound as do many species of fish because this area is not overfished like other rivers One fish of interest is the catfish pirahña and really do put up a fight when hooked. Some of the Ox bow lakes nearby contain the famous peacock bass up to 10lbs. The peacock bass is known to be the strongest fighting freshwater fish in the World (pound for pound) and they are good at eating too.

Very few tourists ever venture up so hopefully these trips will change that and bring more employment to the area. Also if successful some of the profits from these tours will be ploughed back into the communities to provide more education for the children of libertad and Puerto Miguel. It is planned that apart from the normal curriculum English and biology will be taught thereby enabling local people to work in tourism in that area and reduce the annual exodus of young people leaving for the big city to find employment.
