Kapawi Ecolodge: A Novel Way to Travel
Experience Kapawi Ecolodge on a Pachamama Journey
The Pachamama Alliance offers culturally immersive trips to Ecuador and Achuar territory throughout the year, many of which include a stay at Kapawi Ecolodge.
Pachamama Journeys were created at the invitation of the Achuar, and through these strong ties with the indigenous community, they are able to offer a truly unique and engaging experience. Activities include:
Swim in the surrounding rivers or grab a raft and float down.
Kayak or canoe on the river and get a closer look at life in the rainforest, including the mystical pink dolphins.
Fish for catfish, or just let the locals show you how it’s done.
Hike through some of Ecuador’s last remaining primary forest, or take a hike after dark to really experience nature’s hidden creatures.
Explore surrounding wildlife. Catch a glimpse of some of hundreds of bird species in their natural habitat. Did you know 1 in 5 birds calls the Amazon home?
Visit an Achuar community and connect with one of the most intact indigenous cultures in the world. Have your face traditionally painted, share a meal with local families, and learn about ancient ways of living interdependently with our planet home.
