Amazon tour puerto maldonado - Orange Nation Peru


Upon your arrival to Lima airport, our representative will meet you and show you to your airport hotel.

Overnight in Lima airport.

*Note: If you would like to explore Lima, just let us know and we can customize your itinerary to suit you.

Upon your arrival to Puerto Maldonado, you will be met by a representative who will accompany you to the port. Once settled in to the boat we begin the journey to our Eco Lodge, deep in the jungle.

Upon arrival at the lodge, you’ll have time to settle in, relax, and meet your guide before learning about the variety of activities that you will enjoy during your stay.

Many of the lodges are located within the territory of the Ese’eja native community, and are built with the same materials and architectural techniques as those used by native communities throughout the Amazon.

In the evening, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner and have the rest of the evening at your leisure.

Today we focus on exploring as much of the jungle as we can. We start the day as dawn breaks

Today is all about jungle exploration. Mornings in the jungle always start early and today you’ll set out at dawn for your first Amazon adventure. Today we will be on the lookout for caimans, turtles, hoatzins, toucans, and–if we’re REALLY lucky– the endangered giant river otters that can reach a length of six feet.

Morning tends to be the best time of the day to see a variety of wildlife, which is why we set off early. We’ll then return to the lodge for lunch, before setting out for another adventure with the expert naturalist guide.

The afternoon the focus will be on flora. The guide will walk with us through the forest, pointing out hidden jungle inhabitants, numerous indigenous plants, and what they can be used for.

After dinner, you’ll head back out into the jungle again for a night walk. Once the sun goes down the jungle comes to life with a completely new assortment of nocturnal creatures that come out.

Time and time again, we hear that experiencing the jungle at night on a dark trail with only a flashlight is an unforgettable experience. Alternatively, you can simply relax to the sounds of the jungle in your cabana hammock.

Note: The exact order of activities may vary due to weather conditions and other considerations. Your Amazon guide will provide details about the activities that you will enjoy each day.

After breakfast, we’ll head out for a jungle hike to learn more about how the forest is used by the local communities in everyday life. During the hike, we may see toucans as well as numerous other species of birds, different species of monkeys and even occasional sloths.

We’ll return to the lodge for lunch and a little time to rest and relax before setting out for another tour. This time, you’ll learn more about human life in the jungle, learning about the type of fruits and vegetables that local communities grow. Return to the jungle lodge before dark for your last evening in the Peruvian rainforest.

Note: The exact order of activities may vary due to weather conditions and other considerations. Your Amazon guide will provide details about the activities that you will enjoy each day.

Say goodbye to the jungle as you make your way back into town and to the airport ready for your flight to Cusco. Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, our representative will meet you for the drive to your hotel. On the way, look out for examples of Spanish colonial architecture constructed upon the remains of ancient Inca palaces and temples.

The city is at a high altitude (3 400m/11 155ft), so you spend the remainder of the day taking it easy as you acclimatize. Overnight in Cusco.

Good morning & welcome to Cusco, the capital city of the Incas! Your guide will pick you up from your hotel ready to show you all the incredible corners of this city. Get ready for Cusco Cathedral, the revered Temple of the Sun (Qoricancha) and the structural marvel of Sacsayhuaman.

After your guide has shown you around the city, you are free to continue exploring on your own, head back to the hotel, or peruse the local artisanal markets for souvenirs. Be sure to check out the San Blas neighborhood!

Enjoy a leisurely evening visiting the countless museums, sampling the local cuisine or listening to the calming Andean music.

Day 7 is jam packed with adventure and discovery. Our guide will pick you up from your hotel in private vehicle for a scenic drive through the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Along the way you get to enjoy incredible mountain vistas, farming terraces and Urubamba River flanking you on your left. Our first stop is Pisac, just 45 minutes outside of the city.

We visit the bustling and colorful Pisac market before exploring the agriculturally significant archeological site that overlooks the city. Enroute, we stop in the small town of Urubamba for lunch. Lunch is at a carefully selected restaurant that’s vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Later, we head over to the historical salt mines, where the locals are still producing salt the same way their ancestors have done for many generations. After, we stop at the fascinating Inca site of Moray, also known as ” The Greenhouse of the Incas.”

Finally, we drive to Ollantaytambo to explore the Archeological site that’s famous for being the last resistance of the Incas against the Spanish conquest. We then have dinner and settle in for the night. We’ve got a big day tomorrow!

The day begins early with breakfast in your hotel. Your guide will pick you up with plenty of time to spare to catch the train to Machu Picchu.

The train journey lasts for an hour and a half. Watch as the farmland melts away, fading into thick jungle and steepling into high mountains.

Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, the town at the base of Machu Picchu, your guide will take us from the train station directly into the bus up to the top of the mountain- where Machu Picchu is found.

Next, we will then enjoy a 2-hour private guided tour from our English speaking guide. We will explore the most important parts of Machu Picchu Citadel during your tour, and have plenty of opportunities to ask any and all questions.

When you have had your fill of the incredible views of Machu Picchu, a bus back down to Aguas Calientes will be waiting. Upon arriving at Aguas Calientes lunch is calling, and with numerous restaurants to choose from (lunch not included) you have your pick of the litter. Depending on your train departure time, there may be some time for shopping, or sightseeing.

The Expedition train will take you back to Ollantaytambo at 2:55pm or 3:20pm, following the spectacular Urubamba River. Close to Aguas Calientes, the canyon is narrow and the river has many beautiful sections of whitewater.

Back at Ollantaytambo, your driver will meet you at the exit from the train station to take you back to your hotel in Cusco in our private van. You can expect to arrive at your hotel about 7:00pm


If you would like to spend more time at Machu Picchu, this package can be customized to include an overnight stay in Aguas Calientes, which will allow you to make a second visit to the enigmatic citadel. On this second day, a Huayna Picchu and/or Machu Picchu Mountain hike can be added to your itinerary, to get a bird’s eye view of the ruins.

At a time convenient for you and your onward travel, you can enjoy a complimentary airport transfer. please coordinate with the office at booking.
