This trip begins on a high note in the high-altitude city of Quito. Then, descend into the Amazon to Ecuador’s largest intact rainforest. You’ll become one of many living things thriving in the dense vegetation, and have a chance to volunteer with a local indigenous community.

Travel back uphill to a picturesque hacienda tucked away in an Andean cloud forest. Explore the hills and trails by horseback, and lend a hand at a local school or at the Condor Conservation Program.
