From the city of Iquitos to the winding Amazon River, Peru’s Amazon Rainforest holds a world of adventure just waiting to be discovered. Spend four days in the heart of the rainforest and lose yourself in the surreal surroundings.

On the banks of the Amazon River, Ceiba Tops Lodge awaits you, an oasis of comfort in the heart of the rainforest. Allow the sounds of the rainforest to surround you - a pure symphony of nature - as you soak in the swimming pool, laze in a hammock, or wander the lodge’s stunning gardens.

A bounty of natural beauty and wealth of culture awaits you along the Amazon River’s shoreline. Take to the water by boat and watch the verdant forest and its fascinating wildlife both on and offshore as you drift along the river. Look out for the majestic freshwater pink dolphins as you go, which are rare and only found in Peru. Climb to the Canopy Walkway and find your place among the canopy of trees, getting closer than you ever thought possible to the creatures that call this elevation home. Experience Yagua Indian culture as you visit a local village and explore the town of Indiana. Learn how Amazonians use their rainforest plants to heal and nourish when you visit an Ethnobotanical Garden.
