Panama is an isthmus – a thin stretch of land that connects two lands masses. In the western highlands, mountains and volcanoes create a challenging terrain for intrepid hikers. Off the coast, Panama’s island chains have every type of beach you can imagine, and rare mangrove forests. The tropical rainforest here is known for its huge diversity of animals and insects, including many species of butterfly. With a naturalist guide, you’ll get an education in biodiversity as you traverse Panama’s intense landscape.

This tour covers some of the most interesting parts of the Panama Canal. Lake Gatún makes up a 21-mile section of the canal. This area used to be a lush valley – it was flooded to make a manmade lake between 1906 and 1914.
