You’ll learn about the Huaorani's fight against oil exploration, kayak down the Shiripuno River amid tropical birds and monkeys, and spend time with the tribe in their natural environment.

The award-winning tour operator, Adventure Life, just announced a new Amazon lodge tour visiting the Huaorani tribe, Ecuador’s indigenous Amazonian people. On this tour, travelers stay in an eco-lodge situated at the headwaters of the Amazon that is run by the Huaorani community, one of the most isolated ethnic groups on earth. Until recently, the Huaorani lived closed off to outside influences, quietly continuing in their way of life as nomadic hunters without leaving much trace of their existence behind.

“Exploring the flora and fauna of the region and interacting with indigenous people of the Amazon makes this a life-changing tour,” said Adventure Life Operations Director Jonathan Brunger. “You’ll learn about the Huaorani's fight against oil exploration, kayak down the Shiripuno River amid tropical birds and monkeys, and spend time with the tribe in their natural environment, while having very little impact on the surroundings.”
The Huaorani Lodge accommodates a maximum of 10 people in five comfortable, traditionally built, palm-thatched cabins. While basic, the cabins provide a private bathroom equipped with a shower and flush toilet, drinking water, and solar electricity.
Highlights of this 7-day tour include: Visiting the community of Apaika with a Huaorani guide and local naturalist; kayaking many miles of the Shiripuno River; learning hunting rituals first-hand from Huaorani warriors; and hiking to a newly developed campsite near a secluded waterfall.
