Touch the Clouds, Trek The Amazons

9 Day Ecuador Itinerary

Need a family adventure that will have everyone discovering the beauty of the world instead of looking at screens? You'll love this expertly crafted Ecuadorian getaway!

Why this is the getaway your family needs…

It’s hard to hold a phone in your hand when you’re gripping a paddle to whitewater raft down the Amazon. Sure, you’ll get a few photos, but you’ll want to spend most of your time in the moment. If your family's in desperate need of a chance to unplug, then we’ve designed this Signature Trip for you.

This trip offers education and adventure…

Walk through Mindo's cloud forests, play with butterflies, and learn how to make chocolates. Teach the children about the physics of the Earth’s equatorial line; observe plants, birds, and cheeky monkeys in Papallacta and the Amazon. Paint your face with the locals. Tube down the crisp Napo River.

You’ll be surprised and delighted by…

The volcanic train ride I have planned for you. It’s a fun way to explore the Avenue of The Volcanoes. When did you last have time for the train, and have the children ever been on one? Stare out of windows and indulge in quiet conversation or a game of cards. Experience life in real-time.
