Amazonia Expeditions was the first tourism company in Iquitos to provide equal opportunity to men and women in training and employment. We continue to provide opportunity to all, regardless of ethnicity, belief or sexual orientation. The high morale and dedicated work ethic that people note among our staff is a result of the owners’ commitment to have a respectful, pleasant, professional and productive working environment for the staff.

Almost forty years ago, a young Dr. Paul Beaver was conducting zoological field research when he learned from the natives about the incredible biodiversity in the upper Tahuayo River basin. His expeditions through the rainforest eventually led to the creation of Amazonia Expeditions a pioneer adventure travel company in the region.
