Day 2 Reaching the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve

After an early breakfast we have a short drive to the airport to take our 55 minutes flight across the country to Iquitos and the pristine forests of the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve (one of the most biodiverse and remote in Perú and maybe in the world). If possible we will try to get a seat on the left side of the aircraft as some of the best views of the Andean and jungle landscape can be seen by this side of the aircraft. 

Upon arriving to Iquitos airport, we will be met by a Peruvian Soul representative who will be waiting for us. from here we take you by boat up the mighty Amazon River, for a distance of about 80 km, then up the Tahuayo tributary, another 65 km. On arrival to Tahuayo Lodge, we`ll have a brief introduction to our private expedition by our personal guide and we’ll be assigned a cabin. We’ll be able to learn about the different alternative activities we can do while in the reserve and if we are up for it we can go for an nocturnal jungle hike after dinner.
