Mindo Orchids & Birdwatching within Cloud Forest –Alambi

Our journey begins early in the morning, and it will allow us to observe part of the great biodiversity treasure located only 52 miles northwest of Quito.  We will come across in front of the famous complex “Ciudad Mitad del Mundo” well known as the Middle of the World. On the road, we will have the opportunity to see different landscapes with a variety of vegetation and animal species.  Our first stop is in Alambi Reserve, a beautiful, pristine,  and peaceful place, home to different types of birds, butterflies, and flowers such as orchids and bromeliads. Alambi describes itself as:  “The forest and its conservation is the heart of what’s Alambi are all about, through ecotourism we guarantee that we will preserve this beautiful cloud forest in Ecuador’s north-west for generations to come.”

Our trip continues in Mindo,  a famous hotspot for birdwatchers and adventurers. This small town is situated in the “Andes Chocó” corridor which is an extensive area known for its biodiversity.  Once in town, we will visit a farm with butterflies to learn more about their life cycle and interesting facts about their feeding and natural contribution. Lunchtime will be followed with free-time to explore Mindo’s natural beauty.

After the excursion, we will head back to your hotel in Quito.
