Unique jungle expedition  in  the  tropical  rainforest in one of  the remotest corners of Perú, at the Tambopata Candamo Natural Reserve, near the Bolivian and Brazilian border at the edge of the Amazon basin. This trip has all the ingredients of an epic and unforgettable journey. Our expedition starts in the town of Juliaca on the shores of Lake Titicaca , the highest navigable lake in the world at 15,480´. A vehicle will take us across the highland down to the cloud forest and to the end of the road, where we put-in. We will get into rafts and use the river as a highway into the jungle. From this point on , we leave behind the last sights of pioneers farmers and gold pan settlers; to enter the magic and mysterious world of the Amazon Rainforest. Floiting though different ecological niches, that  provides the habitat for a diverse species of plant and animals,including 8 species of macaws,  13 species of monkeys, 530 species of birds, ocelot, jaguar, capybara, tapir, caiman, giant river otters, and many more.

We´ll be floating for 6 days, running Class III  rapids. Later, we´ll arrive at the world renowed Macaw lick (see National Geographic; January 1994 ) where we will spend the night , allowing us to see these magnificent birds at dawn. Then we´ll take a motorized dug-out canoe to the frontier town of Puerto Maldonado ;where we spend the night and end our journey.

Afterwards we begin our return journey by a motorized dugout canoe, to the frontier town of Puerto Maldonado and then by airplane to Cusco.
