Amazon River Tour – Iquitos to Yurimaguas via Cargo Ship

After adventuring in northern Peru and trekking the Huayhuash circuit we headed to the jungle for a week to explore the Amazon River! We spent three days traveling up the river on a working cargo ship, where we slept in hammocks, watched the pink river dolphins, and read all day.
We had to fly into Iquitos as there are no roads into the city and you must arrive by boat or plane. It was an awesome adventure and we hope to make it back someday for a longer trip up the river. Hope you enjoy!
