Depart from Quito for Mashpi Lodge

The adventure begins in Ecuador's heritage capital, Quito, at the scheduled transfer time of 8.30am from the city's main hotels (time will be reconfirmed directly with you prior to today). The road journey will take you through stunning scenery and you will discover the spectacular natural diversity of the Andean landscape. From the dry valley of Pomasqui towards the cordillera's western flank, into lush, misty cloud forest, and enter the magical world of Mashpi. Mashpi Reserve extends over the surrounding 1,300 hectares and is a haven for wildlife and biodiversity. Arrive at the lodge for lunch before the afternoon’s activities commence. Various activities are available, dependent on factors such as group size, physical abilities and weather conditions. Optional night walks head out from the hotel following dinner.

Activities at Mashpi Lodge

Early morning activities are organised before breakfast for those who want to enjoy the beauty and magic of dawn in the forest – which is when most birds are active, and when views are most spectacular. Following breakfast, head out from the lodge to explore the lush surroundings, returning for lunch and a rest, before enjoying an afternoon amid nature, then dinner, night walks and a good night’s rest.

Depart Mashpi Lodge

On the last day, there’s an early breakfast, followed by a morning activity. Guests return to the lodge and check out at 11.30am. Drive back eastwards, winding your way up the Andes towards the capital, arriving at your hotel in Quito in the late afternoon.
