Meals: ALL INCLUDED AT LODGE

Depart Quito´s airport at 11:00 am (subject to change). A 30-minute flight over the Andes Mountains leads you to a bustling oil town called Coca in the Amazon Basin. A quick lunch in a private house is then off to the town docks, where you will board private canoes for the 2-hour journey downriver to the Lodges property.

A 30-minute hike through the rainforest leads you to Lake Pilchicocha. Here, you are met by native workers who will paddle you across the lake to your final destination. Arrive at Lodge around 15:30 or 16:00 (subject to change).

Swim in Lake Pilchicocha, a blackwater lake home to many fish and animals. A refreshing swim after arriving may be just what you need after being in the equatorial heat all day.

Bird observing from the mini tower offers guests an excellent opportunity to view several species of birds common around the lodge. Also, a great place to watch the sunset. Visit the butterfly house with your naturalist guide to view the beautiful colors of many butterflies. After dinner, accompany your naturalist guide on a night walk through the rainforest to view the hundreds of different species of animals that can only be found at night. Or maybe a canoe ride on the lake to view the spectacled and black caimans with their glowing orange eyes as you silently paddle across the lake to get a closer view.

Birdwatching in the Amazon

Start your morning activity between 6:00 and 7:00, walking the Liana Chica trail to reach the spectacular canopy walk within Sacha’s private reserve. This unique self-standing suspension walk offers a “birds’ eye view” of the rainforest canopy, positioned 36 meters high and extending 275 meters. After this, explore Liana Grande, passing through diverse forest habitats with native guides highlighting medicinal plant species. Transition to the Higueron trail, winding through pristine primary forest with towering Kapok and Fig trees. Post-lunch, opt for a leisurely hike along the Rio Napo or a more challenging trail, Leoncillo, to spot the elusive dusky titi monkey. All paths lead back to the main boardwalk for a final hike and canoe ride back to the lodge.

Bridge to Sacha lodge

Leaving the lodge after breakfast, you begin your hike on trail Lagartococha. This trail lets you learn more about the native people and their relationship with the forest. Learn about the trees where native people believe the spirits of their ancestors live and the mysterious “duwende” or devil-man of the forest. After arriving at Lake Lagartococha, take a tranquil canoe ride through a natural swamp, home of anacondas, caimans, and capybaras. After the canoe ride, walking on the other side of Largatococha may allow you to spot capuchin or squirrel monkeys playfully jumping through the trees. Return from the walk or canoe ride and head back to the lodge for a refreshing lake dip or a relaxing nap in your hammock on your private balcony. After lunch, your native guide will teach you to fish for the infamous razor-toothed piranha. Remember that piranhas will never attack a person, and swimming at the same time is perfectly safe and fun!

Around 15:30, you will begin what many think is the best trail at Sacha, a silent canoe ride through the flooded Amazonian forest. Where you have a good chance of being surrounded by troops of squirrel, capuchin, and howler monkeys, keep your eyes peeled for the shy and elusive river otter and the incredibly well-camouflaged three-toed sloth! After your eye-popping ride through the flooded forest, you will arrive at Sacha’s 135-foot wooden tower built around an ancient Kapok tree. Get close-up views of vibrantly colored birds through Sacha’s Powerful scopes, and watch the sunset with a fantastic view of Mount Sumaco, a volcano, and possibly a view of the snow-covered caps of the Andes!

Sacha-Motorized Cano to Reserve

Breakfast and a departure from the lodge at 07:30 am. One last walk on the boardwalk to the river, and from there a 2-hour canoe ride back to Coca for your 35-minute flight back to Quito.

Arrive in Quito at 12:30 pm (approximate timing. Subject to change).
