Tour description provided by G Adventures

Head for the clouds – cloud forest, that is. Experience it from your lodge in the middle of the Mindo forest, sitting at a comfortable 1200m in altitude. Try river tubing, rappelling, hiking, or horseback riding, or just take a more relaxed pace enjoying the jungle atmosphere. The Mindo area is known for its amazing bird-watching and more orchids than you thought possible.
