3 days / 2 nights – Start: daily

Day 1: from Puerto Maldonado to Refugio Amazonas

• Transfer to the port of the village of Infierno, where an approximately 2-hour boat trip to the Lodge Refugio Amazonas, located in the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve, begins. Wild animals, especially birds, can be observed here during the journey.

• After dinner, night trip to look for caimans.

Day 2: Refugio Amazonas

• Half hour hike to a 25 m high lookout tower (Canopy Tower) early in the morning. Since it was also built on a hill, it offers a great view over the surrounding original jungle in the Tambopata National Reserve.

• Breakfast at the lodge.

• Very close to the lodge we visit a camp of brazil nut collectors. Explanation of the process from collecting the Brazil nuts to drying them.
