Enter a tranquil world in which glacier-topped peaks level out in high Andean plateaus covered by pincushion plants and other temperate vegetation, dropping down through misty, subtropical cloud-forests, and levelling back out into immense tropical rainforests such as the Amazon Basin and Choco bio-region. Such abrupt slopes create an abundance of habitats and wildlife like nowhere else on Earth. This diversity explains why Ecuador is one of the four richest bird countries in the world. During this 6-day trip through the northern Andean foothills and cloud forest of Ecuador, you'll be brought in search of the region's spectacular birdlife. The tour can also be combined with Amazonian Basin, Galapagos or Highlands!
