This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve, Mindo Ecuador
Early in the morning leave Quito by car driving northwest of Pichincha province. Ride through the road to the Coast (Mitad del Mundo - Calacalí – Los Bancos) and enjoy the view of small towns in the highway witnessing an astounding landscape transformation on the way. After approximately one 1 and 1/2 hour, arrive at the lovely Mindo Parrish
Once you arrive in Mindo Cloud Forest take a small walk I the town and then head towards the Butterfly farm and Hummingbird Feeders (don´t forget your camera).
Afterward, you may choose your desired adventure:
Option 1: For adventure seekers, go for the Canopying, 13 zip lines of different lengths that range from 20 to 400 meters, an adrenaline-filled ride which enables an amazing view of the cloud forest. (Cost of the Canopy activity not included in the price of the tour)
Option 2: Go for a trekking adventure across the cloud forest towards a waterfall and a ride Mindo’s famous “Tarabita”(Cable tram). Take your time to observe Mindo’s natural beauties and diversity.
Take a break for a local-style lunch.
Explore Mindo once a more and visit another special spot to view hummingbirds, butterflies and, with some luck Tanagers and Toucans.
Head back to Quito around 5 pm.
