5 Days Amazon Immersion Tour in Peru

An Immersive Experience

Our Amazon Immersion tours ensure that you enjoy an immersive experience while you see all that the Amazonian rainforest has to offer. In addition to exploring the flooded forest around the Grand Amazon Lodge, on this tour you will also visit San Pedro.

In San Pedro, you’ll experience the Terra Firma biosystem which is home to soil that never gets flooded, as well as many different species of birds and colorful poison frogs. We’ve planned an itinerary that is packed with adventure to make sure you get the most of your time. Our Amazon eco tours in Peru provide an unforgettable experience.

In addition to seeing more wildlife, this tour will also expose you more to the people of the Amazon. In addition to incredible tours, we are productive members of the community. At Grand Amazon Lodge & Tours, supporting our community is important to us. We provide education and medical and construction supplies to our community in order to help sustain the area.
