Lago Huitoto

Lake Huitoto

It is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Peru and in the world. Our beloved Lake Huitoto is without a doubt the most valuable attraction we have. It is the reason for the amount of biodiversity of flora and fauna species that we find in the area. This makes us a Nature Reserve. As the lake is part of the Huitoto Lake Lodge concession, it is exclusively for our guests and tourists who decide to spend a few days in the jungle and do tourism in a different and sustainable way. The harmony and peace that the lake transmits is something unique. Receiving the sunset from the lake leaves beautiful postcards and observing the formation of the stars is a wonderful thing. Likewise, sailing the lake at night is an amazing experience that complements day sailing very well.

Among the species that live in the lake are alligators that we can see during the day hovering around certain parts of the lake and at night we can detect them due to the brightness of their eyes. The river wolves are the protagonists of the day, we can find them in the middle of a banquet after hunting fish.
