Get in touch with the power of the planet on this nine-day adventure packed with many of Ecuador’s natural wonders. Hike through the greener-than-green Amazon jungle with a local naturalist guide at your side, slip into the celebrated (and restorative) hot springs of Papallacta, enjoy lunch with the residents of an Andean community, and spend a night at a historic hacienda. Let this force of nature blow you away.
Explore just Ecuador or enjoy the optional Galapagos extension. This trip explores the gorgeous central regions of Ecuador. From rich cultural traditions and natural beauty to colorful architecture and incredible cuisine. Relax in the dense canopy jungles of the cloud forest and absorb the stillness of the highland plains.
The Amazon Jungle is known for its exceptional biodiversity and the peoples who have lived there for centuries. The trip starts and ends in Quito, Ecuador's capital which sits high in the Andean foothills at an altitude of 9,325 feet. From there a flight to Coca City and an hour canoe ride down the Amazon starts the adventure. Combine this trip with Galapagos Islands trip.
Our Galapagos naturalist guides will lead us on island walks and give on-board talks during our discovery of these remarkable island ecosystems, skirting past nesting boobies, scouting the seas for breaching whales and snorkeling among colourful fish.
