A great way to enjoy a closer connection with the rivers of the Amazon Basin is in a kayak and, on the way, perhaps see some wildlife, including toucans, caiman and river turtles. Given the size of the kayaks, it is also easier to approach the lush riverside vegetation, perhaps offering the chance to discover other more reculsive birds and animals. It is also possible to observe some local lives working on the farms along the river and also visit a riverside beach.

This activity involves paddling down a few small rapids in a part of the Tambopata River, intermixed with calmer waters.
