Delve into the Ecuadorian Amazon and step back in time to the centuries-old world of the Huaorani people. Take a 30-minute plane ride from Quito to Quehueri’ono and get your first glimpse of the Amazon before taking a dugout canoe to your lodge. Wander through dense forest with your local guide, who will show you how to hunt and collect the forest’s natural resources, then visit a Huaorani community and participate in some of its daily rituals. Disappear deeper into the wilderness on a hike along the Ceibo Trail and spend a day canoeing the Shiripuno River, keeping your eyes peeled for exotic birds and cheeky monkeys.
Go with Adventure Life from about US$2642 per person, all-inclusive.
