Located in primary rainforest in the buffer zone adjacent to the vast Yasuni National Park, Eden Amazon Lodge is in one of the most bio-diverse and wildlife-rich regions of the planet. Explore expansive Yuturi Lake by paddle canoes, walk through the untouched forest with a Native Kichwa guide and a trained Naturalist and search for amazing wildlife and learn more about this biological heart of our planet.
Eden Amazon Lodge offers many incredible ways to enjoy the Amazon to the fullest! The lodge is located next to Lake Yuturi Cocha, which has many inlets and allows for more diverse wildlife viewing. The activities that we offer include paddle canoe trips, walks through the amazing rainforest and visits to our canopy tower. The nature walks range from short 30 minute walks, all the way to 6-hour hikes through the Amazon. Because of the small size of the lodge, the activities are flexible and customized to your precise needs and interests.
