Mindo Adventure


Mindo is located in the Northwest of Quito about an hour and a half by car. Mindo is surrounded by the beautiful Mindo-Nambillo Cloud Forest, and it’s consider one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world. People from all regions of the world come here to appreciate the vast variety of birds. But that’s not the only thing that Mindo has to offer, this is a perfect place for hikers/bikers that want to adventure in the cloud forest; it also offers beautiful waterfalls, canopy, tubing, and rafting.

Activity level: Easy to moderate

We will depart from Quito early in the morning (7am). On our way we will be able to appreciate the changes in the ecosystems as we immerse ourselves in the cloud forest. On our arrival we will make a quick introduction about Mindo and start our hike to the waterfalls( Nambillo or Santuario). On our way back we will spend about an hour gliding through the trees in a circuit that contains 12 zip-lines giving way to the most amazing views of the Nambillo Forest. After a well deserved lunch we will head to the town where we will gear up (helmet and life vest) and embarque in our tubes to the Mindo river. Tubing is an activity very similar to rafting performed with buoys attached to each other. After getting dry and changed our ride will take us to the Mariposas de Mindo which is a butterfly farm where we can admire more than 25 species and the 4 stages in the cycle of the butterfly. In the afternoon we will head back to Quito.
