Itinerary

Day 1Upon arrival at the Cuyabeno bridge

Your guide will meet you and transport you by motorized canoe to our base camp, Cuyabeno River Lodge. After an initial rest, we will have a hike in the afternoon on the Ceibo trail, which will take us three to four hours. Our guide will explain everything there is to know about all the flora and fauna we can find in the Cuyabeno Reserve. After our hike, we will head back to the lodge and have lunch. And, if you’re still up to it, we can have a nocturnal canoe ride in the river surrounding the camp area. We will have dinner at approximately 7 pm, and we’ll go take a rest for the next day full of activities.

Day 2 After an early breakfast

We will visit the various small lakes in the Cuyabeno river system, and we will have a short hike of about two hours where we might be lucky enough to see Peccary’s, a species of wild pigs. When we get back to our motorized canoe, we will have the opportunity to go fishing for Piranhas, where, if your lucky enough to catch one, you can go back home telling everyone you ate a piranha. We’ll make our way back to our lodge and eat lunch, where we’ll have sometime to rest. Later in the evening, we will have a nocturnal hike to go see Caimans, and we will return to our lodge to eat dinner and rest up for the next day.

Day 3 After breakfast

We will get on our canoe for a long ride up the Cuyabeno river, where we can see a lot of exotic birds that can only be seen in the Cuyabeno Reserve. We will continue up river until we get to Laguna Grande, which harbours some really interesting animals, such as Pink and Grey Dolphins, Giant River Turtles and the elusive Anaconda. We’ll find a good place to eat lunch and will rest for a bit. Then we’ll continue our journey through the Cuyabeno river, until we arrive to the Siona Community, where we can see their customs and experience their ways of making food, such as the Yuca bread or Casabe. This whole trip will take us about three hours, so we will be arriving back to our camp at about 6 pm, right on time for dinner, and a well deserved rest.

Day 4Interlaken Area. Excursion to The Jungfrau Massif

After breakfast, we will explore one last trail, with new opportunities to see different vegetation and animals before eating lunch and taking the early evening direct bus (6:30 pm) to Quito.
