Posada Amazonas Tour Activities

Canopy Tower
A twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas leads to the 30 meter scaffolding canopy tower. A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From atop you obtain spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest cut by the Tambopata River winding through the middle. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon, or mixed species canopy flocks land in the treetop next to you.

Tres Chimbadas Lake
Tres Chimbadas is thirty minutes by boat and forty five minutes hiking from Posada Amazonas. Once there you will paddle around the lake in a catamaran, searching for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of our lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers. Otters are most active from dawn to eight or nine AM.

Jungle Night Walk
You will have the option of hiking out at night, when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. Much easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.

Relax at the Lodge
No matter how exciting your Amazon jungle tour is, it’s still good to take some time out to rest and relax. This is a vacation after all and as with any vacation, you should take some time out for yourself. Instead of going on another jungle hike, if you feel like resting, do just that in one of the hammocks at the lodge. Sit back in your room and read a book or take a walk down to the river and watch the water go by.
