Get ready for an unforgettable day exploring the depths of the jungle! After a nutritious buffet breakfast, join the canopy walkway excursion. A 25-minute ride by motorized canoe takes you to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway Interpretation Center. After ascending the first tower, at 95 feet (29 m) above the forest floor, you will literally walk through the treetops for one-and-a-half hours along suspension bridges that link eight observation platforms. Enjoy landscapes and vistas that would be unimaginable from below, while on the lookout for giant strangler fig trees, orchids, toucans, woodpeckers, trogons and with a little luck birds of prey, monkeys or sloths. After your descent from the Canopy, experience the Anaconda Walk for about 15 minutes along the 200-meter wooden bridge over the wetland. On your walk, keep an eye out for rainbow coloured macaws and butterflies, and listen for the barking call of the peccaries and chattering of monkeys that call the jungle home. Return to the lodge for lunch. At dusk, take a ride with your naturalist guide by motorized canoe on the Madre de Dios River. Along the way you’ll see a variety of jungle fauna – perhaps hoatzins, monkeys, macaws, black caimans, flying parrots, and, if you are lucky, a family of endangered giant river otters. Learn about the river ecosystems, Amazonian creeks, nocturnal animals’ behavior, and the southern constellations. Return to the lodge once again to freshen up, then enjoy some dinner. After dinner there will be an optional night walk through the jungle. Overnight in Amazon Lodge.
