Jungle expedition in Iquitos

Jungle expedition in Iquitos

per person

ITINERARY

Iquitos would be the paradise for the ones in love with animals.

Visiting a rescue center, hosting all the kinds of animals belonging to the Jungle. Monkeys, Jaguar, butterflies… and much more.

But also having the possibility of walking around a Monkey Rescue center, where the young monkeys will follow us hanging on your arm, or sitting on your head. a Wonderfull moment.

We also can count on a privileged access to a Yagua Family. In Iquitos you have a lot of those fake native communities, seeing you as a dollar bill. But Andean Photo Expeditions doesn’t like that. Our family is pure, and real. A Sharing moment you will never forget.

Piranha fishing, the biggest market of the Jungle, local restaurants, and much more is to be discovered in Iquitos.

It is also named the "Amazonian Venice " . This is where we will have a walk in the biggest market of the amazonian Jungle. You can find all the products from the Jungle ( Fruits, Fish, Meat, Honey, herbs...).

    The perfect way to travel Peru.

    Me and my friends contracted Andean Photo Expedition for a Mountain and Jungle trip.
    I wasn’t interested about photography, but my friends was . They learnt so much and enjoyed every remote places we have been to. Communities, amazing landscapes we could just visit thanks to their knowledge of the country . People, animals, culture. It was a complete trip in Peru .
    Thanks to our guides we had amazing drone shot, and amazing pictures for ourselves.

    You like photography ? It is perfect for you ?
    You don’t have a special interest in Photography ? Not a problem , they are the best way to travel in Peru .

    Thank you so much guys.
