Overview

During our 14 Days Ecuador Nature trip We will cover 300 kms in 7 days, driving and exploring from the top of Andean snow-covered volcanoes to the very bottom of the eastern Andean slope, ending our journey in the bustling frontier town of Coca. Along the way we will take in the great physical features of the land, its broad valleys, steep canyons, billowing clouds and mist, and rushing rivers. We will pass through many elevations, and amazing communities of plants and animals: paramo, polylepis woodland, cloud forest, subtropical and tropical forest. The abundance and diversity of life here is mind boggling. from hummingbirds at snowline, to booming orchids in the cloud forest, rich assemblages of birds in the foothills, to, finally, an ocean of trees in the amazon lowlands.
