We are part of the earth
and she is part of us


Our properties are located in three
of South America’s most unique
environments. We are committed to
protecting their natural and cultural
heritage through the conservation of their
ecosystems, the reintroduction of
native species and the implementation of
concrete social initiatives.

Did you know that Awasi
is Carbon Neutral?

We protect 340 hectares of native
woodland in Iguazú and Patagonia.
These areas absorb over 10,000 tonnes
of CO2 per year. This amount is greater
than the emissions generated by our three
lodges, including the travel emissions
of our guests.

A Conservation Project

Torres del Paine National Park is a refuge for wildlife, harbouring native species like the puma, condor, guanacos and many others. However, when these creatures leave the protected boundaries of the national park, they are exposed to several dangers. Since Awasi Patagonia is located right on the edge of the park, we decided to create a natural corridor, thus expanding the protected area creating territories for them to inhabit freely.

and she is part of us


By leasing adjacent sheep farms and working together with neighbouring estancias, we have helped restore the natural habitat of native species, and now between 9 and 12 pumas roam an area that was devoid of wildlife. The Awasi guides help monitor the puma populations and keep hunters away, even during the off-season. Furthermore, we are working with scientists and researchers to gather information about the behavioural patterns of these species.

After just two years of active protection in the Awasi Reserve, we are already observing an increase in animal presence. Not only is there a steady puma population in the area, but other species like the Geoffroy's cat (which was believed to be extinct in the region) have benefited from the protection as well.

Awasi Guests have two options during
their stay: Puma Spotting or Puma Tracking.

Nature & Wildlife

Awasi Iguazú is set in one of the last remaining parts of the Atlantic Rainforest, an area with an incredibly rich ecosystem and one of the best places in the world for bird-watching and butterfly spotting. Sadly, the rainforest is rapidly decreasing in neighbouring areas due to deforestation and the expansion of agriculture. It is one of the most biodiverse areas in Argentina.

Our efforts are focussed on protecting
and conserving this valuable ecosystem.
We do so by donating and collaborating directly
with local entities which work in the protection,
rehabilitation and reintroduction of native animals.
We also protect natural areas by helping monitor
and track local species, and by helping the
authorities keep hunters and poachers at bay.

Awasi guests can visit these protected
areas and take part in the work we do to
protect and reintroduce native species to
their natural habitats and aid in the
conservation of the Atlantic Rainforest.

Guaraní Communities

The area around Awasi Iguazu is home
to four neighbouring native Guaraní
Communities. Their culture is extremely
rich, and serves as an inspiration to us in
terms of how to coexist respectfully
alongside nature

We support these communities by offering a
series of collaborations which run throughout the
year and include private visits to their community
the most skilled artisans of the community
giving basketry demonstrations.

Additionally, we fund a weekly art workshop at
their local school which previously lacked an art
teacher for the children. During these workshops,
we arrange for a range of artists to participate
(illustrators, theatre teachers and more) to give
the children tools for self-expression and

Awasi guests can take part in basketry
demonstrations and visit the local
Guarani community.
