Tour Description

Our guide will pick you up early at your hotel and will drive you to the town of Gamboa, located right on the shore of the Panama Canal. Once there, you will be able to enjoy nature first hand as you go on a 3 hour hike through one of the most important natural reserves of the Panama Canal watershed. The almost 20,000 hectares of Soberanía National Park are home to a great variety of mammals, birds and reptiles, and our experienced guides know exactly where to look for them.

After the hike, we will take you to the local marina, where you will embark on a 1 hour boat ride on Gatun Lake and navigate next to the giant Panamax vessels that transit the Panama Canal. Our captain will take you to different areas of the lake in search of wildlife, as our guide points out and interprets the plants, birds and animals visible from this new perspective of our rainforest. 

Upon your return to the marina you will enjoy delicious lunch, with amazing views of the ships navigating the Panama Canal, before you head back to your hotel.
