A unique opportunity to share time with people from an ancient Amazon forest culture at the Huaorani Ecolodge.
- See the Amazon through the eyes of the people who live there - The Huaorani people have lived in eastern Ecuador for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Gain a unique perspective on the Amazon rainforest by learning what it means to have the rainforest as a home and to have to fight to preserve it.
- The Huaorani Ecolodge is one of the most remote eco lodges in the country - This wild ecolodge is reached by a 45 minute flight followed by a short trip in a dugout canoe. There are no roads and the only people who live in this area belong to the Huaorani indigenous culture, a tribe that fiercely resisted contact with other people until fairly recent times.
- The “Fierce People” - The Huaorani were (and are) very protective of their territory and occasional spearing of outsiders who wandered onto their lands earned them the title of "the fierce people" by their Kichwa neighbors. Since those days, they have become much more open to visitors to their lands and welcome guests to the Huaorani Ecolodge with a stay in cabins built with traditional materials harvested from the forest.
