      It’s no coincidence that both Charles Darwin, Alexander Humboldt and Alfred Russel Wallace first began to understand evolution while exploring the rich tangle of life found in the tropics.


      Explore the rainforest with an intimate and small group of like minded nature and science enthusiasts who just want to learn about Ecuador's ecosystems and peoples. We'll get in the thick of it to be surrounded by incredible wildlife, expansive ecosystems, and enthusiastic locals.

      8 day all inclusive tour that covers three of Ecuador's unique ecosystems.

      Summary of Places

      THE AMAZON RAINFOREST

      The Cuyabeno reserve, the part of the amazon rainforest located near the Colombian border, is home to playful dolphins, chattering macaws, pocket sized monkeys and floating forests! It’s the second largest reserve of the national parks in Ecuador, protecting 5,900 kilometers of pristine Amazon tributaries. 
      We'll be visiting Waita Lodge and it is truly in the heart of the Amazon. Located three hours upriver by boat, you’ll be greeted by dolphins, toucans, and dragonflies as you make your way up the narrowing Amazon rivers. The tranquil lodge has a balanced mix of water activities including paddle boating and canoe rides, and land based activities. Learn about medicinal plants, follow leaf cutter ant trails, and learn about the people and cultures that live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.


      THE EASTERN CLOUD FOREST 

      The Eastern cloud forest sits at 8,000ft above sea level and is one of the most biodiverse areas in the world!  Hummingbirds that can only be found here flit through the trees and glittering insects wander around the elephant sized leaves. This area is protected thanks to community efforts. 
      We'll be visiting Guango Lodge which is known for its diversity of hummingbirds and other iconic Ecuadorian birds. Don't just look up as you'll miss the dazzling array of orchids scattered through the landscape and the breathtaking mountains. 


      VOLCANIC PARAMO

      Quito, Ecuador's capital, is surrounded by nature and shrouded in history. The high altitude Paramo ecosystem is where you land when first arriving in Ecuador. Several towering volcanos rise from the outskirts of the city while cobblestone roads and golden churches litter the central streets.  Above the city skyline is the volcano Pichincha - a beautiful natural refuge housing dozens of unique plants and bird species. Ecuador's history is palpable whether you're climbing up the Pichincha volcano, trekking through the archeological parks, or standing next to the Virgin Mary atop the Panecillo.  


      Is the Trip Guaranteed to Run?

      If we reach the minimum amount of people (5) that are required to run the trip, we will go. If there are concerns for passenger safety, the trip may be delayed or cancelled.  Force Majeure events in Ecuador may shut  businesses and/or affect the tourism sector and its transportation. If this happens, we will either delay the trip or cancel the trip with refunds. This will be clearly communicated to you.

      Nancy is a passionate, self proclaimed, PR representative for insects. While earning her Master's degree at the University of Georgia in Entomology, it became crystal clear that most people did not see insects the way she did. Following her Master's, Nancy flew to the heart of the Ecuadorian cloud forest where she worked in an ecolodge. After two years, Nancy traded her leafy green jungle for the concrete jungle of Quito where she designs her own tours under the name SciBugs. She has been working in Ecuadorian Tourism since 2015.
