Typical Activities

Nature walks: Take a hike of one to three kilometers (up to 2mi) during a morning or afternoon with a professional guide to see flora and fauna as well as to receive descriptions about the rainforest and the people who live in surrounding areas. Your guide will show you fascinating aspects of the forest, and will point out any possible dangers along the way. (These are far less common than most first-time visitors might expect and your experienced guide will know how to handle any situation that might arise.) Please follow your guide’s instructions, stay with your group and be quiet. Always take some water and your rain gear. This activity can also be done at night to see different groups of organisms.

Boat float: Travel along the Tiputini River slowly (mostly without motor) to see wildlife from the same perspective as those early Spanish explorers back in the 1500s. This activity may be done daytime or night. During daytime floats, it may be possible to also swim alongside the canoe, to cool off and to get a different look at Amazonia. Life jackets must be used in such cases without exception.

Visit the canopy: You can climb to the top of one of our towers to get another perspective of the forest. Once again, this means a different kind of access to different species that can only be heard or barely seen from the forest floor.

Visit the lagoon: Another different habitat is available for exploration by small dugout.

Visit a black-water stream: This ecosystem is quite unique in this part of Amazonia and is home to species that are not likely to be seen in other parts of the forest.
