Transporting visitors away from trappings of the modern world to a place alive with color, life, mystery and excitement, our Amazon programs for 4 or 5 days will show you the stunning beauty of the Amazon jungle up close and personal.
Your journey begins in Quito with a flight to the Amazon City of Coca, our tour will take you to the tropical rainforest of the lower Napo River, a major tributary to the mighty Amazon River.
From there you’ll be whisked along the river, past the magnificent trees and vistas that make up this part of the Amazon Jungle, to your lodge accommodation.
Using the lodge as your base you can explore the surrounding forest with daily tours led by expert bilingual guides. The tours are available in varying levels of difficulty, so everyone will have a chance to get out and experience the stunning flora and fauna.
Enjoy activities like kayaking and swimming in tropical lagoons that form the watery network which eventually leads to the Amazon River and daily/nightly tours through the jungle to spot monkeys, caimans, snakes, insects, spiders, birds and visit to ancestral Indigenous communities.
The comfort and friendly service given on your Lodge, plus exquisite cuisine is surely the perfect complement to life a real adventure in the Jungle in style.
