Yacutinga Lodge offers a variety of eco-programs that guests can partake in with the lodge as a base, including the Yacutinga Experience, Yacutinga Origins, Birds of the Jungle, The Jungle Challenge, and Yacutinga Insight.

Yacutinga Origins explores the origins of the Misiones Province when late 20th century pioneers arrived in the area with the hope of conquering the untamed jungle. This program takes an unexpected journey into the farming lifestyle of the first Andresito colony, the hard work, faith and sacrifices that were made and the wildlife and local tribes that hindered them.

Birds of the Jungle takes an in-depth look at the exotic species of birds that call the Misiones Rainforest - one of the most bio-diverse areas in Argentina - home, visiting and hopefully seeing some of the 320 bird species at the exclusive Yacutinga Private Reserve. This renowned program is guided by one of the most well-known ornithologists in the Paranaense area.

The Jungle Challenge is a specifically designed three-day program for team-building purposes. This exciting challenge in the subtropical forest offers adventure, fun, and intrigue, as teams or couples work together to reach their strategic goals and find the hidden totem in the jungle.

Yacutinga Insight is aimed at people who are interested in alternate ways of improving their lives and well-being, as well as the discovery and enjoyment of a pristine natural environment. The program uses ancient yoga practices, meditation, TaiChi, and other cultural and artistic practices such as painting, drawing, silent retreats and to achieve these goals. These are combined with outdoor activities such as interpretative walks conducted by environmentalists and paddling along the calm waters that cross the private reserve to offer an overall jungle experience.
