Amazonian Rivers are just full of magic!


‘Warmi Icaro’ Juan Carlos Taminchi

There are many myths and legends connected to  the rivers of the Amazon and because the people still believe them –  the magic still exists.

If you ask local people from the villages along the River Huallaga, if they believe in mermaids, they will say:

‘When I was a small child I remember seeing a mermaid’ very matter of fact.

‘She looked a bit like you with blond hair and blue eyes – and with a blackish plum tail, that reflected in the light.’

I think if we are to travel along the rivers here we have to have this piece of magic in our minds.  There is nothing else quite like it, on our planet.


We offer: journeys to the ‘Río Abiseo National Park,’ in Juanjui.   The National Park was created in 1983 and declared by Unesco as a Cultural and Natural Heritage for Humanity.

Journeys along the River Huallaga from Chazuta.  ‘Pongo De Aguire’ point where the river changes from the high jungle to the lower Amazon.   Stay overnight in the village of  Achinamiza. Get a feel of village life along the River Huallaga.   Cacao Island and Jumanchi springs.
