Trip Highlights

Snorkeling on Santa Cruz, Galapagos
Mountain bike past iguanas, Magnificent Frigatebirds and Blue-footed Boobies to the coast of this small island. Wade into the pristine waters and float weightlessly as you snorkel alongside sea lions, a variety of reef fish and the occasional marine iguana or sea turtle.

Explore Life in the Amazon
As you journey down the Napo by riverboat and motorized canoe, you'll make stops to visit a remote community, chat with the locals and learn to make jewelry and other handicrafts.

Cooking Class in Quito
Engage in preparing Andean specialties like ceviche with fresh ingredients while Junior Adventurers prepare dessert at Zazu, a favorite local restaurant.

Visit to Limoncocha Biological Reserve
As one of the most biodiverse places in the world, Limoncocha has an abundance of natural beauty and wonder. This tropical paradise is home to night monkeys, howler monkeys, giant otters, over 350 species of bird and—the king of the Amazon—the black caiman.

The Historic Center of Quito
Stroll through the colonial core of one of the best-preserved historic centers in the Americas. Visit local markets, artist studios, a chocolatier and one of South America's most beautiful Spanish cathedrals, La Compañía de Jesús.

Canoe into the Heart of the Rainforest
Venture forth by motorized canoe from the stately Anakonda riverboat to a lush world where you might see a 3-toed sloth or one of the Amazon's famed pink river dolphins.
