Quito accommodation pick-up and transfer to eco-lodge (D)
Today, one of our representatives will pick you up at your accommodation and take you to the bus station, once there you'll be transferred to Tena. After your bus transfer ends, you'll meet your guide at the Araujo Bridge and you will take a motorized canoe and will travel 20 minutes upstream. On this ride you can appreciate the magic and beauty of the Amazon rainforest driving along a zigzag river that flows in the jungle like a giant snake and is considered the vein system of the Pacha Mama (Mother Earth). Once you arrive at the dock area of the Itamandi Eco Lodge, the manager will greet you with a delicious welcome drink. A short briefing will be held by a naturalist guide with general information about the lodge and the activities. When the sun has set it is possible to do a night walk. On this walk you can listen to nocturnal sounds and look for fishing bats, owls, a variety of insects, tarantulas, frogs and possibly snakes. If the sky is clear, you'll have the opportunity for some stargazing. Afterwards, dinner is served at the lodge.
