The extensive rainforests of Tambopata, Peru are known for their high degree of biodiversity and we always strive to showcase this aspect of the jungle to our guests. At the same time, we realize that offering a variety of activities on our rainforest adventure tours can provide the type of well rounded vacation preferred by some guests. To please the entire family and give you an adventurous, unforgettable rainforest vacation, we are happy to offer “soft adventure” programs.
With these exciting, enriching itineraries, guests can experience the adventure of macaw research by using a rope, harness, and jumar to climb up into the rainforest canopy. You can watch for rainforest wildlife while sea kayaking along gentle stretches of the Tambopata River, or pedal a mountain bike along muddy rainforest biking trails.
Our soft jungle adventure tours also incorporate cultural aspects of the Amazon by visiting and learning about a rainforest farm, a local ethnobotanical garden, and an old camp used for harvesting Brazil-Nuts. Guests also get the chance to hear lectures about ecotourism and the Tambopata Macaw Project.
We also of course make time for wildlife observation with walks through the rainforest, visits to clay licks frequented by colorful parrots, a canopy tower that gives you a bird’s eye view of the forest, an exciting trip to a clay lick used by wild Peccaries, and a relaxing boat trip to a lake frequented by rare Giant Otters.
If you are looking for an enriching Amazonian experience that is as safe for the entire family as it is adventurous, sign up for one of our soft adventure programs now.
