Earth’s largest and most spectacular tropical wilderness is a landscape of huge waterfalls tumbling off table-top mountains, vast, coloured rivers, and fragrant cloud forests. All filled with astonishing, endemic wildlife.
This beautiful eco lodge sits in pristine, remote forest in Ecuador’s lower Pastaza Basin – one of the headwaters of the Amazon. The land belongs to the Achuar indigenous nation who regard the region as sacred. While transfers and infrastructure are managed in conjunction with an experienced tour operator in Quito, the Achuar own and run the lodge and use the income to protect their livelihood and land.
Rooms sit in thatched bungalows built to traditional Achuar designs (but decked out and furnished for Western comfort). They sit over bird-rich wetlands in primary rainforest, but stays focus on indigenous culture as much as wildlife.
The forest surrounds are pristine and primordial – no lodge in the Ecuadorean Amazon is more remote. The nearest town is 160km away; arrival is by small turboprop plane.
Bungalows sit over a wetland busy with wading birds and caiman-crocodiles. Achuar people lead hikes into the surrounding forest – which is filled with huge trees. Purpose-built communal houses offer numerous places for quiet contemplation and for cultural exchange – learning about traditional indigenous crafts, medicine and ceremonial spirituality.
