Ecuador Amazon | Private & Tailor-made Tours | Uncover South America

Ecuador Tours Explore the Ecuadorian Amazon Jungle

The Ecuadorian Amazon is a vast area of tropical rainforest and rivers that is considered one of the most awe-inspiring places in the world. 

As if the Galapagos island were not impressive enough when it comes to wildlife, Ecuador also has its own share of the Amazon rainforest. The Ecuadorian Amazon holds hundreds of different animal and plant species as well as the most stunning landscape you will ever see. On top of the Amazon, there are also a large number of parks and reserves that are protected to ensure that the flora and fauna remain untouched for future generations. There are a number of indigenous tribes that remain in the rainforest who live in isolation and are equally protected by Ecuador’s constitution. 

    The Amazon Basin

    The Amazonian Rainforest covers 5.5 million km2 and over nine countries making it the biggest and most important rainforest in the world. The Ecuadorian sector of the Rainforest is home to 1,400 different animals which includes mammals, reptiles and birds. 

    There are nine indigenous tribes that live in the Ecuadorian Amazon, three of which live in total isolation away from the rest of the world in the depths of the rainforest. The other six tribes welcome visitors and it is a great opportunity to meet a different community, learn about their way of life as well as their ancestral practices. For travellers who wish to experience the immensity and power of the Rainforest there are plenty of activities available to witness the rawness of this region. Kayaking the Amazon river, hiking into the depths of the rainforest, swimming in lagoons and wildlife watching are amongst the numerous trips you can try your hand at.

    • Meet indigenous tribes

      The Huaorani are an indigenous people that live in Yasuni National Park. Until recently they were a nomadic community constantly travelling through the reserve looking for food and a place to stay. Due to recent interference by oil companies trying to mine the land they have since changed their ways settling down in one area though they still avoid modern civilisation. A couple of other tribes such as the Tagaeri and the Taromenane have continued to live their nomadic and isolated life away from any outside disruption.
