About Our Ecuador Ecotour

Journey from the charming capital city of Quito, through the Andes Mountains and into the rainforest through the famous “Gateway to the Amazon”. From the comfort of an ecolodge built and maintained by a small native population, we will guide you through the waterways, forests, and into their traditional dream culture in a way most travelers can’t experience. Watch for pink river dolphins, wild toucans, howler monkeys and other exotic creatures in this incredibly biodiverse tour in a secluded corner of the Amazon rainforest.

More About The Achuar

The Achuar lives in extreme isolation in an area considered “terra incognita” until the late 1960s when missionaries began entering their territory. There were virtually no converts, but an increase in intercultural contact began that shaped the future of the Achuar nation. Due to a unified position against resource extraction, they have maintained their territory free of highways, oil, timber, and mining companies. They successfully developed a separate revenue source in the form of the Kapawi Ecolodge.

Gondwana-founder and guide, Jared Sternberg lived with the Achuar for a summer and published a chapter in “Tourism in the Green Economy,” using the Achuar’s ecolodge as a case study—he has insider access to the Achuar Territory.

A portion of the proceeds from this South American ecotour will be donated to the support of the indigenous Achuar Nation.
