AQUA NERA

4 Nights Low  water itinerary

(June–November)

Nauta (IQI) to Nauta(IQT)

Get a taste of the most biodiverse rainforest in the world aboard the Aqua Nera. Begin your journey in Iquitos, a rustic city which is the beating commercial heart of the Peruvian Amazon. Our 4-night itineraries focuses on the Marañon, the Amazon River’s largest tributary, as well as other neighboring waterways, the Samira , Yarapa and Yanayacu-Pucate. Discover the habitats of these nutrient rich waterbodies and how they — and the jungle around them — support a vast array of wildlife.
Regardless of the low water or high water season, our local born-and-bred naturalist guides know the characteristics of Amazonian birds and animals. With their keen senses, they guide Aqua Nera’s ergonomic, low-emission skiffs to the jungle trails or tributaries where up-close wildlife encounters are likeliest. Knowing the Peruvian Amazon and the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve like the back of their hand helps our guides make the most of your whirlwind trip to the Amazon.
