Transfer to Cusco airport for flight to Puerto Maldonado. Upon arrival, you’ll be met by a representative from Inkaterra and transfer by large safari-vehicle to a comfortable waiting pavilion. Time permitting; explore the butterfly garden while you await your group transfer to the river. Board a large, motorized dugout canoe for the 45-minute trip down the Madre de Dios River, to Reserva Amazonica or Hacienda Concepcion. There will be many opportunities throughout your stay to visit the Canopy Walkway, a complex set of hanging bridges, towers and platforms that will allow you to view and photograph the flora and fauna of the rainforest. Welcome reception and time to settle in to your room upon arrival. Enjoy a tasty lunch in the spacious dining room and then join your guide for a walk along the lodge’s trail system where you can see Brown Capuchin monkey and the Common Squirrel monkey. View a nature presentation this evening and then an authentic dinner is served followed by, weather permitting, an evening walk through the forest to experience the sounds and sights of the night. Overnight in a Cabana at Hacienda Concepcion (standard) or at Reserva Amazonica in a Superior Rio cabana (deluxe.)
Excursions offered at each lodge vary slightly but both present guests ample opportunity to hike forest trails, canoe on oxbow lakes, explore the canopy via hanging bridges and observe jungle wildlife and birds.
