The Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical forest on Earth, crossed by rivers which flow into the Amazon. The Ecuadorian part of this great forest, also known as "el Oriente", is an extremely diverse region due to the different altitudinal tiers close to the Andes. This coupled with its tropical temperature, high rainfall and rugged topography, originates a high level of biodiversity and endemism.
The Ecuadorian Upper Amazon Basin is home to several indigenous nations, each one with its own characteristic features such as language, customs and own Cosmo vision. Considered a natural treasure for the wealth it contains, the Amazon Rainforest is one of the last regions on the planet that, for its high levels of biological and cultural diversity, it is being considered as a strategic area to be preserved.
Jungle expeditions, navigation in paddle canoe, rafting and kayaking, birdwatching, contact with local communities, are some of the activities that you can select in a tailor-made trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon region.
