Amazon Jungle Tour

Top Amazon jungle trips in South America

The Amazon Jungle is one of the last remaining unknown mysteries on the face of the earth. There is still much that is unknown about this wonderful biosphere, and what is known is pretty incredible. It is the breathing lungs of the planet; home to over half the plant and animal species known to man. Its deepest nether-reaches are barely charted. It is even home to uncontacted tribes of humans living a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Short of donning and loin-cloth and going off to join them, the best way to see this wonder-sphere is with amazon jungle tours.

Introduction to the Amazon Jungle

The Amazon Jungle is one of the last remaining unknown mysteries on the face of the earth. There is still much that is unknown about this wonderful biosphere, and what is known is pretty incredible. It is the breathing lungs of the planet; home to over half the plant and animal species known to man. Its deepest nether-reaches are barely charted. It is even home to uncontacted tribes of humans living a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Short of donning and loin-cloth and going off to join them, the best way to see this wonder-sphere is with amazon jungle tours.

Best Time of Year to Go on an Amazon Jungle Tour

There are two seasons for the Amazon in Peru; the wet season and the dry season. The former is December through to May, and the latter is from June until November. In terms of weather to expect, they are largely identical. It rains all year round in the rainforest, a little more in the wet season but not significantly so. The region receives 3.6m / 12ft of rainfall a year over an average of 200 days, so it is difficult to avoid. But the rainfall is more in the nature of passing showers and an entire day is rarely rained out. So, there really is no ‘best’ time to for Amazon jungle tours.

Wet Season (December – May)

The wet season opens up the rivers and tributaries of the Amazon river, bringing more of the jungle into reach by boat and allowing for further and greater exploration. The average temperature is 30 degrees Celsius / 87 degrees Fahrenheit and humid. Boat expeditions are more profitable this time of year, and you can also get out and hike to areas inaccessible during the dry season. On the other hand, many good hiking routes are submerged during this period.

Dry Season (June – November)

What corresponds with winter and spring, this season is actually hotter than its counterpart, the wet season, which would be summer. Average temperatures hit 37 degrees Celsius / 98 degrees Fahrenheit. With more ground exposed, there is great trekking this time of year, with more opportunities to venture deeper inland and spot monkeys and sloths and migrating birds. Fishing is also better this time of year, including piranhas.

 

The Amazon Jungle is one of the last remaining unknown mysteries on the face of the earth. And it is there to be explored. While Peru is famous for the Andes mountains and Inca heritage, it also offers the mouth of the Amazon jungle; an entryway to this steamy cauldron of raucous life.
