Day 1

  • Outward flight to Quito from Coca
  • Boat and canoe transfer
  • Arrival at Napo Wildlife Center

Your trip begins with a 30 minute flight leaving Quito for the town of Coca in the jungle. Once there, you will embark on a motor boat and sail down the Napo river for approximately 2 hours. Continue your voyage into the heart of the jungle by canoe and reach the Napo Wildlife Center. In the afternoon, recuperate from the journey in your lodge and relax by the lake.

Day 2

  • Discover 2 Parrot Colonies
  • Visit an Indian Community

In the early morning, leave the lodge to discover a colony of Parrots assembled on a “Parrot clay lick” (a clay wall). You can spot over 11 bird species including parrots, parakeets and scarlet macaws. Later on, meet the Kichwa Añangu Indian community and discover the traditions and costums of these inhabitants. Head out on a forest walk to meet a parakeet colony and have lunch before being taken back your lodge.

Day 3

  • Observation Tower (36 meters high)
  • Canoe rides
  • The guided jungle walking tour accompanied by your guide.

In the morning, visit a 36-meter high observation tower located in the heart of the forest. Enjoy an unobstructed view of the jungle and its birds. Admire a number of birds that can’t be seen from the ground including tangaras, scarlet macaws and toucans thanks to a telescope (supplied by your guide). Take a canoe trip down the river and witness black caimans, sea otters and even anacondas! Lunch at the Napo center and explore the jungle by foot accompanied by your guide. You can meet lizards, a variety of monkey species, insects, snakes and many other animals.

Day 4

  • Boat and canoe transfer
  • Return trip from Coca to Quito

Return to Quito by the same modes of transport on your last day: canoe, motor boat and a 30 minute flight. The return journey will allow you to admire the surrounding birds and jungle wildlife.

  • Une expérience incroyable ! L'endroit est magnifique et perdu au beau milieu de la forêt amazonienne. Guido, notre guide, était très gentil et lui-même passionné par les animaux. Nous avons pu voir des singes, un caïman, des serpents, des cochons sauvages et plein d'autres animaux plus petits (nous n'avons pas réussi à voir les loutres géantes, tant pis !). Les repas étaient bons et les chambres confortables et bien entretenues. Nous avons vraiment adoré notre séjour
