Did you know that when you stay at Treehouse Lodge you can choose between 19 different excursions? And all of them are included in the price!
Here is a list of the top 7 excursions to choose from:
1. Swim In The Amazon River
You’ve traveled across the planet to see the world’s greatest river: the mighty Amazon. This is your opportunity to knock out a bucket list item by going for a swim. You’ll travel down the tributaries to the main Amazon river with your private guide. If you’re lucky a dolphin or two might say hello.
2. Fish for Piranhas
One of our most popular excursions in the treehouse hotel. Travel by boat to one of the many great piranha fishing spots. 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 lift up the pole. Once you’re done you can choose to catch-and-release, or, if you prefer, the chefs will prepare the piranha as a side dish to your nightly meal.
3. Jungle Walk: The Giant Water Lilies of Oxbow Lagoon
The Oxbow Lagoon hosts many species of aquatic plants such as the Giant Water Lilies that can grow to 6 ft. in diameter with flowers the size of cabbage. You’ll also observe the strangely interesting hoatzin, a bird feeds exclusively on poisonous plants that it can keep in its crop for several hours. Also, you will be able to spot the wattled jacana, nick-named Jesus Christ because it can walk on water.
4. Visit an Amazon Community
If you’re looking for a way to truly connect with the Peruvian natives, this is it. Interact with the river people who still preserve their traditions, ancient knowledge, and even language. We’ll get to explore their homes made out of wood and palm trees to see how they live. 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. You’ll have the chance to purchase their beautifully hand-crafted items made using materials found in the Amazon jungle.
5. Sunset on the Amazon with the Dolphins
A guest favorite. We will often recommend that you enjoy this excursion on the day of your arrival at the amazon lodge. 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.
6. Jungle Walk: Night Monkeys, Sloths, Hoatzins, and More
Join this jungle walk to witness the only nocturnal monkey that can be spotted during the daytime. They make their homes in tree holes and, once located, can be seen sticking their heads out to take a peek. You’ll walk along a trail that runs close to an old tree where these night monkeys can be seen. On this walk there is also a chance that you can spot any of the following species: owl monkey, pygmy marmoset, monk saki, squirrel, red howler, duski titi, wooly monkey, and tamarins.
7. Treehouse Canopy Walk
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 rainforest from the treetop canopies. You’ll explore all of the canopy walkways and viewing platforms that dot the are of the Lodge. Learn about the history and architecture of the lodge while you observe wildlife from 30 – 70 feet above the jungle floor!
