One of the ten best wilderness lodges in the world by Outside Magazine

 

Recognized as one of the ten best wilderness lodges in the world by Outside Magazine.

LodgeTravel to the lodge requires that you fly into Iquitos, Peru. From Iquitos we take you by boat up the mighty Amazon River, for a distance of about 50 miles, then up the Tahuayo tributary, another 40 miles.

The trip takes 4 hours by our speedboat. Amazonia's lodge on the Tahuayo River is rustic, yet comfortable. There are fifteen cabins; some are honeymoon cabins, with a single large bed, others are cabins with two beds and a few are family style cabins with one large bed and several single beds. Half of the cabins now have new private bathrooms. The other half of our cabins have shared bathrooms. Cabins with private bathrooms are assigned on the basis of earliest reservation. Conservation Lab

The entire lodge is screened and features a dining hall, areas to socialize and relax and a conservation education laboratory with library. There are flush toilets that use a sanitary septic system and showers. There is no electricity except a small generator for re-charging camera batteries. The food is prepared by a culinary staff and is considered by our guests as delicious. Special diets can be entertained with prior notice. We have much experience in sanitary food and water handling and preparation and thus you can eat anything served at the lodge, even salads and unpeeled fruit, items that are not generally recommended for consumption by tourists in South America.

cabinThere is a laundry staff and daily laundry service is provided without charge. We believe that this service is unique among jungle lodges.  In 1998 the lodge won the "Citation of Honor" award from Peru's Dept. of Industry and Tourism.Breakfast at the lodge

The lodge on the Tahuayo River has access to a great variety of ecosystems that we can explore as well as many native communities down river. There are sufficient English speaking native men and women guides so that each person can go at their own pace and according to their interests. This is ideal for people who do not want to be stuck with a large group on a pre-set itinerary.

You can choose a photographer's pace, a soft pace or a ruggedly adventurous pace. You can concentrate more on bird watching, canoeing, canopy exploration, fishing or native culture. You can be active before breakfast or well into the evening. porch

Families can have a private guide who specializes in working with pre-teens or young teens. Special itineraries are available for marriages, honeymoons, anniversaries, and other special occasions.

There are many facilities, offered by no other tour operators, to give you unique experiences in exploring the rainforest. One example is the canopy zip line system. Many companies have canopy walkways or towers, but only with Amazonia can you actually fly from tree to tree, with nothing underfoot except aDinner at the lodge hundred feet of rainforest. Another example is the newest in underwater hydrophonic technology, to allow guests to actually listen to the communication of pink dolphins and other aquatic animals.

Tourists with passionate interests in primates, orchids, native culture or other subjects may request to participate in scientific studies sponsored by Amazonia Expeditions. For hardy ecotourists we have remote campsites for the observation and habituation of social groups of primates.

Travelers thirsting for the ultimate in adventure can leave the lodge with their guide and camp in the old growth terra firma forest in the interior of the reserve.

This trip is unique in providing many special facilities for your enjoyment, such as a rope and harness rig to explore upper levels of he forest, a variety of canoes and motor boats, camping gear, a generator for recharging batteries, etc.
