Treehouse Lodge

A gravity-defying set of 12 treehouses soaring between 25 and 75 feet above the jungle floor.

Overview

Did you know that 90% of life in the rainforest is found in the treetops? Getting off the ground is the only real way to explore the Amazon. But, how is that possible? Meet Treehouse Lodge, a gravity-defying set of 12 treehouses soaring between 25 and 75 feet above the jungle floor. The lodge is tucked into a 345-acre jungle preserve, where wildlife will be your neighbors.

Life At Treehouse Lodge Peru

The magic begins the moment you arrive, by boat, at Treehouse Lodge. After disembarking, take your time walking up the winding entrance path since you will want to soak in your first moments of this rare experience. Depending on the season, the meandering path will carry you over a lagoon or the jungle floor.

Your first stop is the main lodge, created from 36 massive beams of ironwood. The mosquito-netted main building is home to the dining area and bar, where you will enjoy Peruvian-style meals, on the bottom floor and a lounge on the upper level. From the main lodge, raised wooded pathways and steel cable bridges radiate out, leading to the treehouses.

Throughout your stay, wildlife will be on your doorstep since every inch of Treehouse Lodge was designed to give you an up-close experience with the rainforest plants and animals. Without ever leaving the lodge, you will be able to see sloths, macaws, parrots, and pink river dolphins. You’ll even share the bridges and walkways with five different species of monkeys.

Excursions From Treehouse Lodge Amazon Peru

Though Treehouse Lodge puts you at the heart of rainforest life, it gets even better when you venture out on the included activities. Try your hand at hunting the same way the locals do by crafting a blowgun, which can hit targets up to 90 feet away. Take a jungle walk to Oxbow Lagoon to see giant water lilies.

Take a slow paddle river in a dugout canoe while keeping a lookout for river otters. Early risers are rewarded with a sunrise boat picnic followed by a swim with the world-famous pink river dolphins. Top it all off with a local village visit to see how local indigenous tribes coexist with their environment.

Protecting People & The Ecosystem

Treehouse Lodge was built with sustainability in mind. The lodge was carefully constructed, by hand, with no heavy equipment, to avoid damaging the trees and other plants in the area. Electricity at the lodge is provided by solar panels, which means there are no noisy generators to distract from the jungle sounds.

Plus, the bulk of the water used is pulled from the river and purified through a four-step process. Treehouse Lodge also puts care into supporting local villages. In addition to providing clothing and medical supplies, Treehouse Lodge works to provide safe drinking water to a nearby village whose inhabitants are forced to retreat to higher ground during the annual floods of the wet season.

Tacking a few days at Treehouse Lodge to the start or end of an Amazon cruise is a must for a complete Amazon experience. Or combine an all-inclusive stay at the lodge with a trip to Machu Picchu to see all the highlights of Peru.

Arrival & Insect Night Walk

Today is a sample itinerary that includes the most popular excursions on offer. This day is completely customizable.

PM: Our Peru Amazon tour begins with a warm welcome at Iquitos airport. From there, we will be transferred some 2.5 hours to the Treehouse Lodge, set in a 345-acre pristine jungle reserve. Settle into your new home for the next five days as we prepare your first delicious dinner at the Lodge.

Nighttime is a prime time for feeding. Once the sun sets, many creatures come out, some are the predators and others the prey. On this night excursion, you will see exotic species of beetles and moths. You will also find some lizards sleeping on the leaves. On our walk, you can see diverse species of frogs like the famous owl frog that makes holes in the ground and weighs over ½ pound. Amazonian people use the skin of this interesting anuran to make drums, but the owl frog protects itself from its predator by releasing a milky liquid from its skin. There is also a frog called the gladiator tree frog that makes its nest close to the water to keep it from potential rivals and attract females for mating. At some point on the walk, we will ask you to turn off your flashlight and stay quiet to let your senses adapt to the darkness, listening to the sounds of the rainforest to identify what they are and where they come from. At this moment, you will truly be able to appreciate the vastness of the Amazon Jungle with all its countless secrets.

It’s the perfect kick-off to an incredible time in your Amazon travel. Just before dusk, you will boat along the Yarapa and Ucayali rivers until you reach the Amazon proper. The world-famous Pink and Gray river dolphins will start to appear near your boat while the sunset gives the perfect backdrop. Take a moment to breathe the freshest air on the planet.

Canoe Trip, Piranha Fishing & Nighttime Boat Ride

Today is a sample itinerary that includes the most popular excursions on offer. This day is completely customizable.

AM: For centuries, River people have moved along the Amazonian rivers on dugout canoes. Even today, this mode of transportation is the best way to explore the creeks: navigating slow, listening to the sounds of the jungle, and observing nature, attempting to imitate the exact way ribereño people see the forest. If you are a bird watcher from the canoes, you can observe and take pictures of many species of birds that feed and make nests close to the river shores. Many species of primates such as brown capuchins, squirrel monkeys, and saddle-backed tamarins are easy to spot. You may even be able to observe rare and elusive creatures such as the river otters from the dugout canoes. At some point, we will stop and fish for piranha!

One of our most popular excursions, this will be one of the great adventures you have while visiting Treehouse Lodge. Travel by boat to one of the many great piranha fishing spots in the area. Armed with a wooden pole, string, hook, and meat, you will lower the bait into the water. When the piranhas strike (and they will!), simply living up the pole. Don’t worry, we will retrieve the fish for you. We have yet to have a guest that hasn’t succeeded. Once you’re done you can choose to catch-and-release, or, if you prefer, the chefs at Treehouse Lodge will prepare the piranha as a side dish to your nightly meal. 

PM: If you enjoy the river by day, just imagine the life that awakens at night. On our night excursion, you will travel along the river, looking for wildlife with flashlights. The chances of spotting wildlife are good. You will see creatures like beautifully coloured frogs resting on the floating plants on the edges of the creeks. You will see fishing bats that catch their prey using their talons like hawks, detected by sophisticated sonar. By the light of your flashlight, you will see potoos, owls, and caimans (located through their red eyes) that venture through the dark to catch their prey. At night you will also find creatures such as kinkajous that feed on fruits and berries. They are easy to see while jumping from branch to branch on trees along the river. Even the opossum that feeds on birds can be spotted primarily at night. These are just a few of the many creatures that love to come out at night.

Bird Watching, Treehouse Canopy Walk & Amazon Community Visit

Today is a sample itinerary that includes the most popular excursions on offer. This day is completely customizable.

AM: The best way to witness wildlife during your Amazon travel is by waking up early to the sound of hundreds of birds and monkeys. The suspension bridges are built to bring you closer to all the wildlife that exists around Treehouse Lodge. You will see many species of tanagers, toucans, parrots, parakeets, antbirds, answers, woodpeckers, and monkeys that come to feed on the fruit and insects found on the trees. There are species of birds that never venture closer to the ground because the fruit they eat is found on the treetops. Being closer to the canopy, it’s easy to see the beauty of these species. In only one early morning, you will observe at least 50 species of birds, 20 of which are uncommon. The variety of wildlife in this type of igapo forest is outstanding. The more appreciation we can gain of these species and the more research we can perform to find new species, the more likely they are to be preserved for future generations. 

Treehouse Lodge is one of the most unique hotels in the world. Featured by National Geographic as one of the Top 10 Most Unusual Hotels in the World, Treehouse offers the incomparable experience of observing the Amazon rain forest from the treetop canopies. On this excursion, you will explore all of the canopy walkways and viewing platforms that dot the area of the Lodge. Learn about the history and architecture of the lodge while you observe wildlife from 30 – 70 feet above the jungle floor. 

PM: If you’re looking for a way to truly experience the Peruvian natives, this is it. Visit an Amazon community and interact with the river people who still preserve their traditions, ancient knowledge, and even language. We will get to explore their homes made out of wood and palm trees to see how they live, what they cook, and the way they survive using the natural resources of the rainforest. You’ll find it fascinating to see how they have adapted to coexist with their environment, sharing their space with countless insects, dangerous animals and poisonous plants that can be used to kill or cure depending on the preparation. The river people are skilful craft makers and have a communal house where you have the chance to purchase their beautifully hand-crafted items made using materials found in the Amazon jungle.

Today is a sample itinerary that includes the most popular excursions on offer. This day is completely customizable.
