Declared in 2011 as one of the 'New 7 Wonders of Nature', the Amazon, also called the Amazon Rainforest or Amazon Jungle covers parts of Peru and other countries in South America. Peru has the second largest portion of the Amazon rain forest, after Brazil.
The Amazon Rainforest is so large that it accounts for over half of the world's remaining rainforest.
It is the greatest collection of plant and animal life. A true paradise for Birding and Wildlife
Peru is a privileged country as the confluence of its Ucayali, Apurimac and Maranon rivers are the source of the largest river in the world -by waterflow-, the Amazon River
, which has an average discharge greater than the next 7 largest rivers combined.
It accounts for approximately one-fifth of the world's total river flow.
The Peruvian Amazon comprises 60% of the country and is marked by a large degree of biodiversity.
To chose your trip to the Peruvian Amazon, select from River Cruises
that depart from the Amazon River in Iquitos (to take you to National Reserves like Pacaya-Samiria among others), or select from Amazon Lodges in The Tambopata National Reserve
