Trip to jungle


In this 8-day program, we will venture into the heart of the Amazon jungle and the mountains. You can expect an enriching, action-packed program full of fun, adventure, and relaxation. We will sail on several rivers, embark on a rafting adventure, visit hidden spots in the jungle, the local Kichwa community, a mountain town where we will bathe in thermal baths, as well as experience ziplining and much more. See the program below for details.

1. day (Day of transportation from Quito)

Your day will start with transportation from Quito. How will it proceed? Around 3:00 PM, the driver will pick you up from your hotels near the airport or directly from the airport. If you are staying in downtown Quito, you will need to make your way to the airport on the day the expedition begins, from where we will travel together towards the jungle. The journey will take approximately 3-4 hours. Don’t worry, it will pass quickly because there is certainly plenty to see along the way. Upon arrival, you can relax, unpack, and settle in. Then we will finally have dinner, get to know each other, and talk about what awaits us in the coming days.

2. day

We will visit a local community, participate in the preparation of authentic Ecuadorian chocolate, and also visit a lagoon where caimans live. All these places are located along the river, so we will travel to them by small boat. After lunch, we will visit the lagoon and take a canoe ride through it. We will have the opportunity to see various animals living here. Then, we will move to a nearby community where we will experience a program showcasing Kichwa traditions and culture.

5. day

You’ll absolutely love this trip – we have a full-day rafting excursion ahead of us! The expedition will be led by professionals who will ensure not only 100% safety but also provide all the equipment – raft, helmet, life jacket, paddle – everything you need to feel comfortable. We’ll be accompanied by kayakers who will be close by the whole time and can assist, for example, if someone falls into the water, etc. Each raft will also have a professional dedicated to helping us navigate.

You don’t need any prior experience. It’s a safe activity suitable for all ages, and I believe you’ll enjoy it to the fullest. And don’t worry about crocodiles. They only live in stagnant waters; you definitely won’t find them in the river.

In the calmer parts of the river, we can also swim during the ride – being carried by the river amidst the jungle? That’s just an amazing feeling! 😊 Along the way, we’ll see smaller waterfalls, visit various hidden spots in the jungle, and have lunch. Then we’ll continue further down the river. Later in the afternoon, we’ll return to our accommodation for dinner.

You can opt to visit the nearby town of Tena, which is just a 25-minute drive from where we’re staying.
