The Ecuador cloud forest is one of the most fascinating biospheres on earth with an extremely high level of bio-diversity and a number of biodiversity hotspots. The most well-known Ecuador cloud forest area is the Mindo Cloud Forest, a world-renowned destination for bird watching with over 400 observed bird species. Another popular attraction of the Ecuador cloud forest are its more than 4,200 documented species of orchids. Most of the lodges in the Ecuador cloud forest are built by eco-friendly standards. They aim to introduce visitors to the amazing fauna and flora of the region without damaging the fragile ecosystem. Our standard Ecuador cloud forest tours range in length from 1 - 4 days, but this region is also included in some of our longer combination tours.
