Rainforest Cruises, a boutique travel company specializing in traditional and authentic Amazon Riverboat tours, is offering an experiential package taking guests aboard the luxurious Cattleya riverboat on the Amazon River with overnight accommodation high into the rainforest's treetops with a stay at the gravity-defying Amazon Treehouse Lodge.
The Peruvian Amazon cruise and Treehouse Lodge tour begins with a three-day/two-night stay in the Treehouse Lodge set in 345 acres of lush jungle space at the confluence of the Yarapa and Cumaceba Rivers. With over 90% of life in the rainforest found in the treetops, a stay in the Treehouse Lodge makes for an experience where plant and animal life abounds and guests can expect to rise to a call of nature. Waking up to a birdsong in the rainforest canopy is a life moment unique to the Treehouse Lodge – the only one of its kind in the Peruvian Amazon.
The lodge has eight en suite bungalows ranging from 25 feet off the ground to a staggering 65 feet. Suites come with creature comforts that most would not expect to find high in the trees and in the middle of the jungle. Showers, sinks, toilets, fresh white linens, comfortable beds, and chairs are the standard. The entire structure of the bungalow is sealed by mosquito mesh woven so fine keeping guests protected while still providing unrivalled views of the Amazon and its wildlife.
Daily activities at the lodge can be tailored to each guest, each lasting two to three hours, including daytime and nocturnal jungle walks to learn about medicinal plants, or to spot insects and night monkeys, piranha fishing in traditional dugout canoes, early bird watching, dolphin-watching, and visits to the local Jibaro and Kukama communities as well as the butterfly farm.
A six-day cruise and lodge package is $2,499 for double occupancy and $3,139 single occupancy per person. Included in the tour is a three-day/two-night stay in the Treehouse Lodge with full board, choice of excursions at Lodge, four-day Amazon cruise aboard luxury riverboat Cattleya, all necessary transfers, entrance to National Reserve, and bilingual naturalist Amazon guides.
