|The Napo Trail cuts from the Napo River to Anangu Lake, just across from the Lodge, and can be used as an alternative to Añangu stream as an entrance to pathway, yet the experience is very different. The trail, which takes you to the canopy tower, is rather flat terra firme forest, which makes it easy to walk on.|
| The Community Trail runs along or parallel to the Napo River, where the Añangu Kichwa community is located. It is not deep jungle, more riverine second growth (as opposed to primary forest) giving you the opportunity to see a different side of the diversity of habitats and wildlife in the Amazon Basin.
|The Tiputini Trail is probably the wildest of them all. If you walk long enough on it, you will see the most variety in terms of habitats, with seemingly limitless terra firme and swampy|
| Canopy Tower
You can climb the 130-foot high stairs to the canopy tower for fabulous views over the canopy. A very special vantage point indeed that gets you up where many birds, reptiles, insects and mammals that are difficult or impossible to see from the ground can be readily observed and sometimes come close to meet you in the same tree. Bring your binoculars, camera and telephoto lenses, set up a telescope: this is a spectacular scenic opportunity. Not to be missed.
Clay Licks (saladeros)
These are true nature spectacles. One located along the Napo River and a second one inside forest, at the saladeros several amazon, parrot, parakeet and parrotlet species come in numbers to ‘detox’, with an occasional macaw or two. There have been wonderful sightings of tapirs, ocelots, owls and other forest denizens center stage, as you quietly watch from behind a manmade blind, comfortably enjoying the activity.
| River Islands
A phenomenon of fast-flowing rivers, unique to the Amazon, Napo River Islands are created by silt and fallen trees washed downstream during rainstorms in the Andes. If enough material builds up an island is formed (sometime even over night). Depending on the age of a given island, different colonizing plant species dominate, from grasses and shrubs to the point where the islands can support a forest. These islands support some animal species that can be found nowhere else. They are a fascinating addition to Amazonia’s peculiarities and can be visited if you so wish to do so.
