    • DAY 1
      • A rewarding 30-minute flight to El Coca over the eastern Andes mountain range is the beginning of this amazing experience. After landing, a short 5-minute drive to the port in the Napo River will take you onto a comfortable covered motor boat. Here we start a boat ride along the Napo for approximately 2 hours. Some birds can be spotted on the way. After arriving at Napo Wildlife Center's welcoming area, we take a magical and peaceful 2-hour dugout canoe along a narrow creek that connects to the lake where the lodge is located. Great chances to spot wildlife, various species of monkeys as well as large birds like toucans, parrots, or even macaws. Late afternoon arrival at the lodge.
    • DAY 2
      • After a buffet breakfast, experience life above the forest floor visiting the 36-meter canopy tower. This tower is located about 30 minutes from the lodge deep within the forest. Get a very good sample of the 567 species recorded so far, with a close look at colorful tanagers, macaws, toucans, flycatchers, and even Spider or HowlerMonkeys feeding themselves on the nearby trees. The canopy tower opens a whole new world to the guests of the Napo Wildlife Center. Return to the lodge for a typical Ecuadorian lunch. After lunch, there are many options to choose from before you start the afternoon activity: climb the central tower for birdwatching, or just relax in your hammock.
      • In the afternoon, hike through a marvelous forest to discover the ecology and the role of plants in the complex world of the Tropical Rain-Forest: vines, ancient trees, bromeliads, and orchids stand out in this impressive natural garden. After the hike, explore the surrounding creeks with the possibility of running into a Giant otter family. A delicious dinner awaits you at 7:30 pm.
    • DAY 3
      • Early wake up to reach the most accessible Parrot Clay Licks in Ecuador, about 1 hour away from the lodge, guests reach there just before parrot activity kicks off at the clay lick between 7:30 to 8:30. A total of 11 species of parrots, parakeets, and macaws can be seen. Later, hike along the Terra Firme forest trail to visit the Kichwa Interpretation Center "Kuri Muyu" handled by the women of the Community, who are known as "mamakuna", to learn about the kichwa culture, crafts, customs, and traditional use of natural resources. Return to the creek and hike through the Terra Firme forest for about 30 minutes until we arrive at the second parrot clay lick where, if weather conditions help, we will be able to find different species of parrots, parakeets, and even macaws. Lunch. You will be paddled back to the lodge, where you arrive in the late afternoon for a delicious dinner waiting for you,
    • DAY 4
      • This morning we hike along the Tiputini trail and its terra-firma forests and swamp forests, searching for more wildlife such as Golden-MantledTamarins, White-Faced capuchin monkeys, two and three-toed sloths, pygmy squirrels, carnivores and their tracks on the forest floor. Back to the lodge for lunch and a well-deserved rest. In the afternoon, paddle canoes will take you to explore deeper areas in the surrounding creeks with more possibilities of seeing unique wildlife. After dinner, you will share a talk about the community and NapoWildlife Center.
    • DAY 5
      • Early breakfast and the last excursion, canoeing back to the Napo river. The creek may reveal new sights of Giant otters, Monk Saki monkeys, hoatzins, black-capped donacobius, or other birds. The motorized canoe will take you back to El Coca, for the flight back to Quito.
