Spend three nights in a luxury eco-lodge in the heart of the Amazonian jungle.

Discover awe-inspiring nature, animals, birds, and insects up close in the verdant rainforest.
Day 1: Arriving in Quito
You’ll travel from the Galápagos Islands to Quito, the historic capital of Ecuador, where your expedition cruise ends. We’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your airport hotel. You can spend the rest of the day as you please before your trip to Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest begins in the morning.
Day 2: Your Amazon adventure begins in Coca
After a short, scenic flight over the Andes to Coca, you’ll enjoy a two-hour canoe ride down the Napo River, a tributary of the Amazon River. You’ll watch for herons, kingfishers, and more. Enjoy a short rainforest hike to Lake Pilchicocha, where you’ll be taken across the lake to your lodge by canoe. Enjoy a swim, do some birdwatching, or visit the butterfly house before dinner. Afterward, enjoy a night walk through the jungle to look for nocturnal animals or take a quiet canoe ride on the lake.
Days 3–4: Your rainforest eco-lodge
Your two-night stay in this luxury eco-lodge includes a range of amazing activities. Try birdwatching on a treetop canopy walk or visit clay licks, where colorful parrots congregate to eat clay cliff walls. Take a canoe ride through the peaceful swamps to spot anaconda, caiman, and capybara – maybe you’ll even get the chance to fish for piranha! Or hike along the Napo River. Back at the lodge, relax with a refreshing dip in the lake or a gentle nap in your private hammock.
Day 5: Returning to Quito
After breakfast, it’s time to return to the modern world. You’ll take a canoe ride back to Coca and then a short flight back to Quito, where your Post-Program adventure comes to an end. We arrive in the early afternoon, so if you have time before your onward journey, we recommend exploring more of Ecuador’s beautiful and historic capital city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
