• Visit the most remote jungle lodge in the Amazon, plus a choice of standard or luxury accommodation.

  • Fantastic hikes on a variety of trails that surround the lodge, including 300m of elevated walkways.

  • Two of the most important Macaw clay licks in the region, which can fill with Macaws and Parrots.

  • Macaw research and conservation - the chance to talk to biologists and ecologists about research on Macaws, carried out here since 1989.

  • Canopy tower to climb, so you can see the Amazon rainforest from above and spot birds, monkeys and more.

  • Caiman, monkeys, turtles and more all possible to spot near the lodge.

It was a great experience in TRC!!! We saw plenty of Macaws and even got to hold some chicks, plus we had a great array of monkeys, capybaras, peccaries and caymans along the way too, not to mention the outstanding birdlife and amphibians, so I was overall very happy... it is a nice piece of forest and met and exceeded our expectations, and our guide Yuri did his best to meet our many demands... we went on several night walks, found some obscure invertebrates and snakes, got to see an anaconda even... some guys were luckier still and there were reports of a puma and a giant ant-eater, the second time only apparently being seen there at TRC, but we didn't feel like we didn't see enough!

The boat trip was on itself a highlight, especially with the river being in full flood and navigating the rapids and the giant trees flowing down it was a real adventure! Back to work now, but I think I have a few strong contenders for the picture of the year ... not just macaws but also a harpy eagle landing on its nest!

Many thanks for making it possible and tailoring it to our rather demanding specifications!!! I will recommend Andean Trails to everyone and hope to have a chance to travel with you again!
