Two days of daydreaming in the paradise of orchids and hummingbirds

Two days of daydreaming in the paradise of orchids and hummingbirds

2 Days, 1 Night  | Easy  |  Pichincha, Ecuador  |  Shared ecolodge

Do you need to get away from the city sounds? Completely surround yourself with nature?

Then this is the ideal place for you! In the 700 hectares of the cloud forest, of which a large majority is still preserved the primeval forest, you will disconnect from the busy world and live a few relaxing days.

The activities will take you on extraordinary hikes to beautiful waterfalls, rivers and along with more than 300 different types of orchids. While hiking you will have the opportunity to listen to a symphony of more than 390 species of birds and other animals, no matter if it is during the daytime or at night. Here you will also get the opportunity to talk to biologists who are currently engaged in monitoring the numbers of bears, pumas and other large mammals.


At the end of the day, you can rest in the ecolodge, where music is the main event and where you can share your experiences with other travelers.
