Get there

Hamadryade Lodge is a luxurious hotel located in the High Amazon region, near Puerto Misahualli. This ecosystem, even if it is still the Amazonian Rainforest, is very different that the one in Lower regions. We are at 500mts altitude with hills and small mountains. Therefore, the climate remains pleasant all year round (24°C in average), and the absence of swamps allows an easier access to the more remote zones of Primary Rainforest, and of course the most positive consequence, is that we do not suffer from the presence of mosquitoes and Malaria. The tours in the Jatun Sacha’s jungle will be a good opportunity to discover primary and secondary jungles and a large variety of animal and vegetal species inhabiting the region.

This hilly topography also offers a great opportunity to enjoy the numerous and pristine whitewater rivers around during day trips in Rafting, kayaking or tubing. Yet a larger range of activities for our clients.
