FIRST DAY: : Cusco – San Pedro

We leave Cusco early in the morning, visit the interesting pre-Inca tombs of Ninamarca, the colonial town of Paucartambo, and then down to the Cloud Forest. Here, a thick cloak of clouds provides perpetual humidity and makes an ideal habitat for epiphytic plants such as bromeliads. This varied and fascinating world is the home of the Cock of the Rock, the Spectacled Bear, Orchids, tree Ferns (one of the oldest living plants), mosses and lichens. At least 50% of the plant species found here are endemic to this region. Overnight in our open air lodge “San Pedro”.

Meals: Lunch and Dinner

SECOND DAY:Amazon Jungle

We observe the ritual mating dance of the Cock of the Rock (Peruvian Rupicola), Peru’s national bird, from the platform (“leek”). After breakfast we continue in our overland transport down the narrow road between waterfalls and canyons toward Pilcopata town, then After 30 minutes bus ride we will arrive at the Port of Atalaya, board our covered motorized boat and head down the Alto Madre de Dios River for approximately 30 minutes toward our private reserve “Lodge” where we will spend the next two nights. A short walk to the lodge. If you do not like this route, you can choose one of these two options in order to get our lodge or in case you want more adrenaline such as: *1 Optional: Descend with mountain bikes from San Pedro Lodge (1700 meters above the sea level;) - Cloud Forest to Pilcopata – High Jungle (700 meters above the sea level). *2 Optional: A 3 hours rafting trip down the Kosñipata River where we will have the opportunity for a dip and of course enjoy the spectacular view of the Koñeq canyon. Continuing down the Alto Madre de Dios River to the lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

THIRD DAY: Amazon Jungle

The great diversity of wildlife around the lodge is due to the wide altitude range of this beautiful site. Immediately after breakfast, we start walking and our guide will explain us about insects, medicinal plants, trees, reptiles, mammals, etc. before returning for lunch we can have the chance to swim in the clear water of natural pools of a stream close to the lodge, early in the afternoon we will have a short boat ride to visit a small lake near the Alto Madre de Dios River. Here we will have the chance to see the Hoatzin, a primitive bird, crocodiles, many species of birds and insects, etc. This will be our last night in this wonderful Amazon jungle. Overnight in the lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Optional Canopy Tour: Our guests traverse from tree to tree and platform to platform using pulleys on horizontal traverse cables, as they sail through the treetops of the tropical rainforest canopy, and over the trails far below. Expert guides assist you in this exciting journey through the different layers of the virgin rain forest and explain what’s going on around you, from the time you leave the ground until you rappel back down to the forest floor.

FOURTH DAY:Atalaya - Cusco

Early wake up to board our boat. After five minutes ride, we will arrive at a small “Collpa”, which is a wall of clay in the riverbanks where many species of parrots feed for mineral and salt supplements to their diet of seeds and fruits. After this colorful and noisy show, we continue by boat to Atalaya port and then the bus back to Cusco arriving late in the afternoon.
