Your first excursion is to the equator, where you can stand where the Northern and Southern hemispheres meet. Experience the diverse wildlife of a cloud forest. Travel to the Amazon Basin, where you will see the waterfalls and get up close with monkeys and exotic birds as you raft down the river. Next, travel to the Andes for a weeklong homestay.
Travel by boat to the Galápagos Islands, the famous site of Charles Darwin’s research, where scientists and nature lovers flock to research and admire some of the most biodiverse islands in the world. Activities include island-hopping on a night cruise, snorkeling, swimming in lava grottoes, visiting turtle hatching sites, and exploring mangrove forests and flamingo lagoons.
Participate in a community service project to support environmental efforts or the local community. Another adventure awaits as you hike from the first base camp to the second shelter of Chimborazo, an inactive volcano and bike back down through a Andean landscape.
