What to do at Alta Sanctuary?

Your days at Alta Sanctuary will involve experiences seldom encountered anywhere else on Earth. Wake up to the sounds of the jungle and 360º views of the Amazon. As sunlight filters through the treetop canopy, the rainforest awakens to a vivid display of colour. 

Start your day exploring the rainforest with the Alta Sanctuary expedition team. On guided treks, receive in-depth knowledge about the Amazon and the complex interplay of life in and below the canopy.

Bird enthusiasts will be particularly delighted. Scarlet macaws, toucans, tanagers, and trogons, add splashes of color to the green canvas. The Alta Sanctuary team will help you in identifying each species and guide you to prime wildlife viewing locations. 

As night falls, enjoy private culinary experiences in the treehouse or your cabin. The staff are on call 24/7 to cater to your every need. Clear skies also offer superb stargazing opportunities.


Map & location

To reach Alta Sanctuary, you’ll need to fly into Puerto Maldonado, Peru, arriving early in the morning or with plans for an overnight stay. The Alta team will then escort you on a 4-hour journey, including 1.5 of dirt track and concluding with a power boat ride down the Las Piedras river, leading directly to the treehouse.

When to Travel

The best time to visit Alta Sanctuary is between May and September, when the dry weather makes for easier jungle trekking and abundant wildlife meet on shrinking riverbanks. The clearer skies are also better for stargazing and you can expect fewer mosquitos.
