The amazon rainforest in Ecuador

12-19 August 2005

Land tours in the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador are possible thanks to a number of lodges offering not only accommodation, but also excursions through well maintained trails and over canoes. Around Sacha lodge there are several miles of trails and water ways, ideal to explore the forest and meet its inhabitants.
