Explore the Peruvian Amazon in person!

Our conservation hubs in Peru are home to ecolodges where conservation-minded tourists can visit the Amazon to explore and discover the outstanding biological and cultural diversity of this magical forest.

Strategically located to give you the access to the best that the Amazon has to offer

Our three ecolodges are strategically located in one of the richest biodiversity gradients in the world, right between the regions of Cusco and Madre de Dios in southeast Peru. Spanning an altitudinal gradient from 760 to 9,900 feet (230 to 3,000 meters), they are located near major tourist attractions like Machu Picchu, Manu National Park, Choquequirao, and one of the most famed birding roads in the world – Manu Road.

Introducing Our Ecolodges

Our picturesque ecolodges are cozy and comfortable, and offer a wide variety of activities and trails to help you take full advantage of the diverse habitats you’ll be exploring. They also enable you to see research, conservation, and sustainable development projects in action, all while enjoying the beauty of the Amazon.
