Experience Vibrant Culture on a Rainforest Adventure

Travel from Ecuador’s capital, Quito, toward the Amazon basin. Moving into the lush forest, everything grows more exotic and tropical. Make your way via motorized canoe to Minga Lodge, your home-away-from home situated on the banks of the Los Rios, a waterway that feeds into the world’s second longest river. Nestled in the heart of the jungle, visit an indigenous community where you will work alongside locals on a sustainable development project, try your hand at weaving crafts from materials found in the jungle, and visit the home of a local family to learn about traditional culture and ways-of-life. Hike the rainforest and discover the amazing array of plant, insect and animal species that call the rainforest home, led by your trusty jungle guide. Uncover the secrets of the rainforest on this unforgettable adventure!
