The Ecuadorian Amazon can be explored via specialist lodges or cruises, bringing you closer to nature and giving an authentic insight into life in the world's biggest rainforest.

The world’s largest rainforest dominates the Eastern half of Ecuador, but despite its immense scale, it is easily accessed from the capital Quito.

Upon arrival, visitors canoe along narrow creeks to their eco-lodges or cabins within the heart of the Yasuni National Park and Biosphere Reserve, perhaps the most bio-diverse place on earth. Here there are hundreds of varieties of fish, reptiles, birds and mammals, plus thousands of different plant and tree species.

Days are spent visiting local Amazonian tribes to learn about their traditions and lifestyle and exploring the jungle with expert guides, helping to place this enormous place into context as they lead you on jungle hikes and identify the resident bird-life in the thick forest canopies. For those looking for a more relaxing experience, you can drift down the Napo river on a beautiful riverboat.
