Amazon Lodges

Amazon lodges, located in privileged spots along rivers and lakes, are possibly the best way to experience the Amazon rainforest. After a full day of exploring the steamy primeval rainforest, you’ll return to your lodge for what we can only call “tropical elegance.” Entering your refreshingly cooled cabin, you’ll find a sparkling shower, high-quality linens and surprising levels of comfort.

Complementing this, the best Amazonian lodges provide higher quality programs and the most expert guides. Surtrek has been covering the Ecuadorian, Peruvian, Bolivian, Brazilian, Colombian Amazon for years, and we’re more than happy to share what we’ve learned. To begin planning your stay in the Amazonian rainforest, contact us today! 

What you’ll experience at an Amazonian Lodge

Lodges in the Amazonian rainforest can offer you all the comforts of a modern hotel while providing closeness to nature and an introduction to life in the jungle.

Staying at an Amazonian lodge, each day you will be led by one of our experienced naturalist guides on daily excursions into the rainforest, returning to comfort-filled accommodations. These features typically include panoramic windows and balconies for amazing views of the rainforest environment, as well as private bathrooms, king-sized beds, and screened windows – plus ceiling fans and mosquito to add to the drama. You’ll also find the lodge restaurants to be large and airy fine dining spaces, complemented by complete bars and other social areas.

In addition to complying with Surtrek’s Green Philosophy, most of these lodges are supported and managed by local indigenous communities, which means that not only do you get a chance to observe the rainforest, but you’re also given a chance to understand of what life here is really like there.

Best Time to experience the Amazon

Since rainfall is so common in the Amazon, it might be best to describe its seasons as the “low water” and “high water” seasons.

It’s generally considered that the best time of the year to visit the Amazon basin is during the low-water season (extending roughly June to November) – especially for rainforest hiking.

During this period, there are fewer daily showers, though the rivers are lower and some are unnavigable; however, hiking trails allow explorers to gain access to deeper parts of the jungle on foot. There are also fewer mosquitoes during this low-water period, and wildlife can be more easily spotted congregated around the remaining wet spots.

During the high-water season (December to May), the opposite conditions are true: Rivers can rise up to 23 feet (7m), which makes more waterways accessible and navigable, though some of the jungle trails are flooded.


Getting to the Amazon

The Amazon region is vast, covering around 40% of all South America, and spans into eight countries. Below, Surtrek has selected three of the most popular countries for accessing and experiencing the mysteries of the Amazonian rainforest:

  • Ecuador: Access to the Ecuadorian Amazon is easy. After landing in the capital city of Quito, Surtrek guides will meet you and assist you with making a short 45-minute flight to the Amazon. Landing at a local airport, you will be transferred to your world-class eco-lodge via a 4x4 vehicle or a motorized canoe to begin an unforgettable adventure.
  • Peru: Home to the second largest area of the Amazon, the Peruvian Amazon is also among the most wildlife-rich. When you touch down in Lima, Surtrek partners will be there to welcome and accompany you throughout your lodge-based tour. You will fly to one of two areas in Peru to experience for your Amazonian tour. Spend time in either in the northern Peruvian Amazon outside the city of Iquitos, or in the southeastern Peruvian Amazon, where the most visited areas are the Tambopata National Reserve and Manu National Park (Manu is accessible via Cusco, so can be more easily combined with a Machu Picchu tour).
  • Bolivia: The Bolivian Amazon is just as biologically diverse as Brazil’s yet visited by fewer tourists. To begin your once-in-a-lifetime adventure here, upon your arrival in the Bolivian capital of La Paz, you will be assisted in flying to the town of Rurrenabaque – the gateway to the Bolivian rainforest. After being welcomed in that town, Surtrek representatives will transfer you to the local river’s dock for a motorized canoe ride into Madidi National Park and onward to your upmarket lodge, shrouded in the mysteries of the Amazonian rainforest.
