Highlights

Yoga retreat Amazon experience Connect to nature

Overview

This retreat program has been designed Francisca Hunting, instructor of Yoga con Sentido and the conservation team of SOQTAPATA, offering a spiritual experience in one of the best natural settings of Cusco.

This five days experience will take your body, mind, and soul in a journey towards balance while witnessing the beauty of an untouched forest that harbours a variety of flora, fauna (orchids, heliconias, Andean bears, jaguars, and deer) and breathtaking waterfalls and natural crystal pools of healing water.

Conservation is your why.

SOQTAPATA's is a project that aims to protect and conserve beautiful forests, aggressively threatened by illegal extractive activities such as mining, logging, hunting of mammals, and informal agriculture. By joining the program, you will not only enjoy a unique experience, but you will also contribute to the sustainable development of the tropical Andes through this kind of wellness and conservation tourism.

Location

Our location

Only four hours from Cusco City, Peru, is one of the best-preserved forests in the Peruvian Amazon. SOQTAPATA is the name of this ambitious project that seeks to protect and conserve more than 9,000 hectares of virgin forests, a hotspot located in the biodiverse tropical Andes. SOQTAPATA is also the name of this magical, mystical, and intriguing place, between 900 and 4,600 metres above sea level, home to many ancient plants and emblematic species such as the Andean bear, jaguar, cock of the rocks, monkeys, orchids, ferns, among many others.

Since 2007, this project located in Camanti, Cusco, with the collaboration of professionals from different specialities, and supported by the Peruvian State, seeks conservation through the execution of programs interested in scientific research, social participation, environmental education, and ecotourism. The purpose of this project is to help mitigate the negative impact of human activity on the forest, protecting and restoring its natural balance and well-being.

Accommodation

The perfect place for those who seek to experience nature in its maximum expression. Our base camp is built on an elevated platform with an acoustic roof covered in straw and very few walls to allow a magnificent view of the forest. The platform includes bathrooms, a dining room, kitchen, camping area, recreation area and laundry area. Our yoga platform is an independent area a few metres from our base camp, also built on an elevated platform with views into the dense forest.

The tents are single or double and have a matress with sleeping bags, sheets, pillows, and personal towels so that our visitors do not need to carry these on their trip to our reserve.
