FAMILY TRIPS: CLASSIC ECUADOR

An unforgettable, meaningful family adventure awaits

Connect with your family and an indigenous culture in the heart of the Amazon

With your loved ones, find adventure and a warm welcome from the people who call the lush Amazon rainforest home. Take part in a traditional cleansing ceremony, trek through the rainforest and so much more. You’ll explore the endless emerald green of the jungle as you come together with the local Kichwa people in a minga, a call to action for the greater good, working on a sustainable development project. You’ll not only bring home lasting memories but also a deep-rooted, genuine connection with a community—one that feels like family.
