Discover the amazingly diverse wildlife and scenic beauty of the cloud forests of Mindo during this two day trip. This unique ecological area is known for having one of the highest concentrations of biodiversity anywhere in the world, including numerous exotic species of birds along with a wealth of fun attractions.
Travel to Mindo Your tour starts early in the morning as you are picked up from your hotel or accommodation in Quito. Admire the changing landscape as mountains give way to the cloud forest as you travel a few hours from Quito to the small jungle town of Mindo. Here you can enjoy many unique activities (for an additional cost) including zipline tours, tubing, a chocolate factory, a butterfly garden and much more.
For the Adventurer: After breakfast at your hotel we will take a 75 minute hike through the cloud forest to a natural waterfall. Come prepared to climb down ropes and splash and swim the morning away, a picnic lunch will be provided, then return to the vehicles for transportation back to Quito.
Alternative options for the day include visiting the orchid or hummingbird gardens and taking a bird-watching trip with a local expert before returning to Quito after lunch.
