Snorkel with sea lions, discover the unusual endemic marine life in secluded bays, and hike Sierra Negra, the largest basaltic caldera in the region. With a pair of Level II Naturalist Guides at the ready to answer your questions, you'll head home with a new perspective on nature, your planet, and maybe even yourself.
Colour, culture and Incas - get ready for feisty, fiery and variety-filled adventures in Ecuador & Peru.

Adventurers can further venture into the Amazon rainforest or go on to trek the Incan Trail, which is a must for any hiker.
