Sample itinerary

Day 1

Fly Over the Andes to the Amazon Jungle

Fly from Quito over the towering Andes and land in the jungle town of Coca, in the Amazon basin. Travel upriver in a motorized canoe, then take a short hike into the jungle before boarding a dugout canoe to paddle across a jungle lake. Your lodge sits at the edge of Garzacocha Lake, a tranquil lagoon filled with piranha and surrounded by the sounds of howler monkeys and birdsong.

Accommodations: La Selva Ecolodge

Located in the Ecuadorian Amazon Jungle, La Selva Ecolodge enjoys a remote location on the shore of Garzacocha Lake, a wildlife-filled natural lagoon. La Selva houses a private butterfly farm, a biology field station and a 135-foot observation tower. Each of the 12 private bungalows offers private bathrooms and electricity, and are equipped with fans, mosquito nets, and hammocks. The cabins are connected by walkways to each other and to the public common areas, which include a spacious dining room with a rooftop lookout point and an open-air bar and lounge with a wrap-around view of the lake. La Selva offers a variety of activities, including birdwatching, hiking, night walks, fishing and canoeing.

Days 2-3

Explore the Amazon Jungle in Search of Unique Plant and Animal Life

Explore the Amazon Jungle and learn about the life it supports.

Excursions vary depending on the weather and the time of year, but usually include visiting local oxbow lakes, taking night walks, and learning to scout for elusive animal and bird life in the vastness of the jungle. This is one of the most biodiverse places on the entire planet, and the sheer variety of plant and animal species is truly awesome. If you are doing a 5 day program, you would add one more day to explore additional sites in the area.
