Nature & Culture - hand in hand Stop Dreaming-Start Booking

Nowhere else on earth can you find such a high biodiversity in such a small place like Ecuador. Although it is the second smallest country in South America it boasts of an extraordinary richness of birds, well over 1600 species. Birding is easy and relaxed thanks to short distances, comfortable lodges and an incredible abundance of species.

Colourful Hummingbirds, Tanagers, Toucans, Trogons, Quetzals, Barbets, Motmots, Cotingas abound in the Highlands, while secretive and mythical Antpittas, Ant-thrushes, Woodcreepers and Tapaculos are also seen in mixed feeding flocks in the cloud forest. Enigmatic species such as Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, hiding Oilbird, highly specialized Torrent Duck or several species of Antpittas can also be found.

We also can add an unforgettable extension to a secluded corner of the Amazon with unique species such as Blue-throated Piping Guan, Pale-winged Trumpeter, Hoatzin, Amazonian Umbrellabird, various Parrots, Parakeets & Macaws, White-eared Jacamar, Tropical Screech Owl, Many-banded Aracari, Black-tailed Trogon & Great Potoo, just to mention a few.
