NEW TRIP: Visit the Jungles of Ecuador with Berg Adventures

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

Join Berg Adventures for a week long adventure in Ecuador! Experience the bustling city of Quito, the quiet countryside of Otavalo, and finally, the lush rainforest of Yasuni National Park. Sit back and relax as we take you to some of our favorite places around the Andean highlands and then transport you to a beautiful eco-lodge in the heart of the lush rainforest. Here are a few of the highlights from this exciting journey:

  • Experience the remarkable capital city of Quito and visit the colorful Otavalo market
  • Hike, bike or ride a horse in the Andean highlands and visit the Guinea Pig Lake
  • Fly over the Andes from Quito to Coca where we catch a boat that will take us to the jungle
  • Cruise down the Napo River in a traditional dug-out canoe — no motors allowed
  • Visit a Quichua village and learn about life in the remote jungle
  • Take in the sights, sounds and smells of the Amazon
  • Encounter a wide variety of birds including parrots, toucans, macaws and “stinky turkeys”
  • See countless animals along the way including monkeys, sloths and alligators

This trip is a perfect add-on for any one of our South American trips, and it is also great on its own. People of all ages and all levels of fitness are welcome to join us. Contact our office or visit our website for more information.
