Ecuador: An Adventure In The Clouds – Birds, Butterflies and Orchids

Ecuador

Hidden deep in the emerald green Andean cloud forests of Ecuador are confetti clouds of colorful butterflies, the fluttering wings of hummingbirds and tiny jewel-like orchids clinging to centuries-old trees. A hike at Cotopaxi, the world’s highest active volcano, will literally take your breath away.

Indulge your lust for wildlife in some of the country’s least-known private reserves – no crowds of humans, just plenty of flora and fauna. Stay in remote eco-lodges and cozy haciendas, hike to waterfalls and crater lakes, relax in hot springs and discover the best of natural Ecuador!
