Journey Itinerary

Day 1: Quito – Amazon.

From Quito, soar over the eastern Andes to El Coca airport. Then, travel by motorised canoe along the mighty Napo River to your destination, Napo Wildlife Centre, a haven for nature lovers, wildlife enthusiasts and adventure seekers in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon. This luxury eco-lodge becomes your base for a foray into the most bio-diverse spot on earth: Yasuni National Park. Begin your discovery by canoe along a narrow creek teeming with wildlife. Watch macaws, toucans and parrots overhead and spy monkeys playing in the trees. Toast to the start of your adventure over a gourmet dinner. As night falls, head back onto the water to explore the moonlit magic of the forest.

Day 2: Amazon.

Rise with the birds and set out for the finest canopy tower on the Napo River. From your 12-storey throne deep in the forest, watch a whole world of wilderness waking for the day. Flocks of colourful tanagers, blue and yellow macaws, spider monkeys and toucans will all entertain you. Later, explore the forest by foot. You’ll barely take a step without seeing something remarkable, whether it’s a golden-mantled tamarin monkey, vibrant manakin or exotic lizard. Venture out on a dugout canoe for a close-up encounter with giant otters in the nearby creeks.

Early this morning, head straight to the parrot clay licks, arriving in time for nature’s best show. Witness firsthand how these mineral-rich pools of mud attract a patchwork of birdlife, including eleven species of parrots, parakeets and macaws. Later, hike to a local Quichua community and learn how people thrive in this remote corner of the world. Trek onwards to a second parrot clay lick and enjoy a picnic lunch before returning to your lodge.
