Ecuador Amazon

Biodiversity at its best

Amazon tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Ecuador's El Oriente jungle region is a beautifully unspoiled wilderness region of indigenous settlements dotted along various tributaries of the Amazon River. Take in this spectacular natural world and its centuries-old indigenous heritage with a stay in a remote jungle lodge, or on a cruise along its wildlife-rich waters. 

Amazon lodges

Perhaps the most popular way to explore the Amazon in Ecuador is with a stay in a lodge. Remote, but with superb facilities, these jungle hideaways offer a wonderful array of activities that really bring the destination to life, whether that's a nighttime hike, a visit to a tribal community or a trip on the water in a dugout canoe. Inevitably, spotting wildlife isn't a given, especially with such dense foliage, but with expert naturalists leading the way, the chance of a close-up encounter is all the more likely.

Amazon river cruises

Already immensely popular in neighbouring Peru, Ecuador also now offers a range of Amazon river cruises - a wonderfully relaxing alternative to the classic lodge option. Sailing along main rivers and, with the help of launches, the Amazon's smaller tributaries, these cruises combine the same immersive jungle experience while taking some of the region's more off-the-beaten-track locations. On board, you can expect superb service, comfortable cabins and delicious locally inspired dining that all really makes the most of your Amazon experience.
