Join us for an authentic Ecuador rain forest experience with the native people whose ancestors have lived on this land for more than 400 years, miles from "civilization" and modern conveniences, yet still having comfortable accommodations. Starting off with a day tour of Quito and a visit to the Equator, you'll travel on to the cloud forests of Mindo, famous for countless butterflies and hummingbirds. Then onto the highlight of the tour, to the community owned and operated Eco-project in the El Choco region of NW Ecuador, the Playa de Oro Reserva de Tigrillos. You'll also visit the highland town of Otavalo and experience the largest artesian market in all of South America before traveling on to the northern highland cloud forest area of the Intag Valley. At Intag, you will experience the cloud forest by horseback, visit thermal hot springs, and local coffee farms before returning to Quito to prepare for your departure home. Intag is also the new home of the Touch The Jungle wildlife rescue and rehab center, starting facility construction in early 2010.
There is something for everyone on these tours including adventures ziplining in cloud forest, beautiful & unusual scenery to enjoy, horse back riding in the Andean Mountains, hiking in pristine rain forests, relaxing in natural hot springs, hammock naps during rain showers in the rain forest, delicious native cuisine, several different cultures to experience, wildlife to appreciate, opportunities to learn about organic farming, shopping for hand made crafts, even a visit to the actual equator! You get to experience all of those things and more while supporting local communities and habitat/wildlife conservation!
Tour fee is a very reasonable $850 per person excluding airfare for this 14 day adventure! Please visit our website for more details and itinerary of the tours at
