History & culture

See the Amazon rainforest through the eyes of its indigenous inhabitants.

First contacted by the outside world just 55 years ago, the Huaorani are one of the most isolated ethnic groups on earth, they speak a language that is unrelated to any other.

For thousands of years they have made their home in the forests of the Ecuadorian Amazon, living amongst the animals and plants, leaving little trace of their existence. But today, anxious to protect their territory and way of life from oil companies and other outsiders they’ve joined forces with one of the leading eco-tourism companies in Ecuador, built a basic but comfortable ecolodge and invite small numbers of people to share their world for short periods as they fight to keep their culture alive.

The five-room lodge, located on the banks of the Rio Shiripuno is reached by road from Quito to Shell and an onward flight by small aircraft to Querheuri’ono. The final stretch of the journey is by river in a dugout canoe.

Join the Huaorani for rainforest hikes, village visits and river journeys for an extremely rewarding and fulfilling experience.

In November 2010 Travel & Leisure magazine recognised Huaorani Ecolodge in their selection of ‘Best Life-Changing Trips’.

We like: The authentic cultural experience offered by Huaorani Ecolodge and the opportunity to spend time with the friendly people who call the rainforest their home.

Best for: The more active, intrepid traveller and anyone willing to forgo the usual creature comforts (including hot water at times) for an inspiring rainforest adventure like no other.
