Bellavista Tour 2D/1N

Bellavista at 2350 meters (7710 ft.) is the highest reserve and the most convenient place to see the incredible plate billed Mountain Toucan. Mindo is renowned as the best birdwatching site in South America. It is home to more than 400 bird species. Thanks to the Andes and the equatorial line our small but diverse country has almost all types of climate, from permafrost to equatorial, creating fascinating ecosystems. Ecuador, covering just 0,02% of the Earth’s surface, supports about 10% of all the planet’s bird species.

Every 200 meter drop in altitude means a change in bird species. Only 80 km from Quito, yet deep in the heart of the Cloud Forest, where clouds and trees blend in a mystery and magic of nature, you can hope to see the velvet-purple coronet hummingbird, the yellow-collared chlorophonia, the orange-breasted fruit eater and the endangered long-wattled umbrella bird, to name just a few. During the tour we will also visit the butterfly farm or take a stroll to the beautiful waterfalls.

  • Day 1: Pick up at 7:00 am. We will take the road from Nono to Mindo famous for its excellent bird watching and landscapes. Approximately at 11:30 am, we’ll arrive at Bellavista where after having lunch at 3:00 pm we will hike for about 3 hours. This is the opportunity to have fun and realize how many birds you can see in that amount of time. Dinner at 7:00 pm and then overnight at Bellavista.

    Day 2: Wake up at 5:00 am and hike inside the cloud forest and visit to all the bird viewpoints on the way. Box lunch during the hike and then lunch in the afternoon and then back to Quito.
