Travel Plan

Our first destination will be Mindo and its surroundings, characterized for its forests full of biodiversity. Here, amphibians, reptiles, hummingbirds, tangarás, toucans, andean cock-of-the-rock, trogones, and many more birds await for us during the first days of this adventure.

After enjoying the exuberant beauty of the cloud forests of the western foothills of the Andes, our second destination will be the eastern foothills, a beautiful natural area, similar to western foothills of the Andes but with different species. In this area we can see the amazing Sword Billed Hummingbird.

Our third stage of the trip is dedicated to the incredible Andean Paramo with its exclusive biodiversity and beautiful scenario. Birds like hawks, hummingbirds and the famed Andean Condor, along with mammals such as the wolf of the páramo, white-tailed deer, vicuna and the extremely elusive spectacled bear will be our main goals to photograph.

The fourth and last part of the trip corresponds to the Amazon. Where a huge biodiversity lives harmoniously in one of the best and most spectacular scenery in the country. Parrots, macaws, birds of prey, monkeys, dolphins, amphibians, reptiles, and many other animals will be our neighbors in the fantastic flooded forests.

We will finish this unforgettable trip with a bit of relax and cultural activities in Quito.
