Almost entirely hidden in the rainforest, Refugio Amazonas provides an authentic stepping stone into the wild. A pocket of luxury in the expansive green, a visit here brings with it an introduction to the incredible conservation and exploration opportunities available within Peru’s Amazon.
Climb up the soaring canopy tower for unrivalled views over the vast expanses of forest surrounding. Spot toucans, parrots, macaws and various canopy flocks. Paddle around Lake Condenado on the lookout for hoatzin, caiman and horned screamers. Visit an ethnobotanical trail where working jungle communities farm Brazil nuts, and help scientists collect ever-important data of animals that are so rare, they are yet to be studied.
It comes as no surprise that Refugio Amazonas was voted ‘South America’s Leading Eco-Lodge’ in the World Travel Awards 2020. With countless conservation projects underway on-site, Refugio’s offer of varied and exciting programs that introduce visitors into their special spot is joined by spacious and airy rooms that back onto the vast forests surrounding.
Just observing the sounds of the forest is an experience of its own. From the veranda, cocoon in a hammock and listen to the crescendo of jungle calls as the evening turns to dusk. The rainfall here is meditative, the slight sound of pattering on the wooden rooftops adds to the gentle symphony.
After a busy day of exploring, learning and seeing return to a comfortable and luxurious lodge so perfectly enfolded into the forest. Enter into a team of like-minded people, conscious and deeply connected to their environment and sit back, engage with a two-sided conversation with the world’s most ancient forests.
