On arrival into Iquitos Airport you will be met by a crew member from Delfin III for the group transfer by private vehicle to Nauta. Before departing Iquitos there will be a panoramic tour of this bustling river city, the largest city in the Peruvian Rainforest. During the 20th century, the city attracted many Europeans immigrants who contributed to a period of great wealth, commercial and social development. Enjoy a box lunch enroute.
Nauta is a small riverside town on the banks of the Marañon River, approximately 95 kilometres from Iquitos and was the first city founded in the department of Loreto. On arrival at Nauta, board the Delfin III at a private port on the shores of the Marañon River. After a VIP welcome, you will be shown to your suite with time to settle in.
While the Delfin begins its initial navigation, you will enjoy the most fantastic panoramic views from the elegantly outfitted observation area located on the third deck, whilst sipping an exotic cocktail made with regional fruits and pisco, the beloved national brandy liquor of Peru. Your naturalist guide will give you an overview of your journey’s schedule, activities, route, highlights, wildlife and vegetation, geographical and historical background, and other useful details.
The third deck features an entertainment centre which offers use for film presentations, as well as extensive literature about the area (fauna, ﬂora, etc.) There is also a completely equipped bar so you can test any combination of regional and international liquors and aromas that the bartender will be happy to provide for you to enjoy under the spell of the beautiful Amazonian afternoons and night, and the sweet breeze of the rainforest. Should you have any doubts or questions, your guides are always fully at your service.
