Amazon holidays and tours
Almost 60% of Peru is covered by the Amazon rainforest, an area teeming with wildlife and biodiversity. The two major areas to discover are the northern and southern jungles.
In the north the focus is the Amazon River itself, with the town of Iquitos at its heart. In the south the Manu Biosphere and Tambopata reserve are among the largest protected areas on earth, while there are many fine lodges around the river port of Puerto Maldonado.

Where to go in The Amazon
Iquitos is the principal town in Peru's jungle region. A pleasant tropical city, it is accessible only by air or river and thus maintains the feel of a frontier town.
The Manu rainforest provides one of the world's great wilderness experiences, with incomparable diversity of life forms.
