of Ecuador offer an incredible variety of landscape, nature, culture and
adventure. National parks, nature reserves, archaeological sites, indigenous
pueblos and superbly beautiful scenery abound. Quito, the cultural centre of
the Andes and the capital of the country, is a World Heritage Site. Our

A journey to South America is not complete without a visit to the Amazon
Rainforest. The Amazon is the largest tropical rain forest on Earth,
covering about 2.7 million square miles (seven million square
kilometers) or 90% the size of the 48 lower states of the U.S. Although
the Upper Amazon of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia is only 20% of this total,
it represents the wildest, most wildlife-packed rain forest in the
world. The density and diversity of Amazonian animal and plant species
reach global maxima in the extreme western Amazon, near the foot of the
Andes, precisely the location of many of the lodges and other
experiences we offer.
Inti Travel and Tours and our South
American associates are proud to present you with an opportunity to
travel to the Amazon to experience this spectacular rainforest with its
abundant wildlife and friendly people. Please refer to
Discover Amazonia for
links to all of the lodges and other adventures we offer in the Upper
Amazon of Ecuador!
Climbing (as if you wouldn't have had enough)
There are quite a few good climbing areas close
to Quito: Santa Clara, Sigsipampa, Sierra Virgin and Cuyuja are
a few outside of Quito on the way to (and in the vicinity of)
Papallacta Hot Springs. I would highly recommend this route if
you enjoy soaking in hot springs while gazing at a
glacier-capped volcano after an invigorating days climbing.
Papallacta Hot Springs offers good food and accommodation with
private cabanas and secluded hot pools close to the Cayambe-Coca
Ecological Reserve. And if you're not a climber, this is still
an incredible and very relaxing place!
