Wildlife & Nature Tours in Ecuador
Ecuador Wildlife Tours is offered by Nature Experience which opened its doors in 2003 with a small team under the guidance of Xavier Amigo, an avid nature and bird lover who traveled the entire South American continent and finally decided to settle in Ecuador. Meanwhile, 17 years later, the company has improved, grown, and matured into an experienced nature-focused travel agency that welcomes many nature enthusiasts from all over the world who are looking for an authentic journey. Nature trips, birdwatching trips, photography trips, scientific trips, we are happy to help you.
Observing the unique fauna and flora in Ecuador’s many rich and intact bioregions is key during our nature tours. We select the best observation sites, often little known to the general public. A large number of different natural environments in a relatively small area (275,000 km2) guarantee a very diverse experience: The Amazon rainforest, the Andes mountains, the coast with its tropical and semi-arid forests, and the legendary Galapagos Islands. Discover one of these regions in-depth or combine a visit to various areas for one of the most immersive nature experiences one can have.
Besides an immersion in nature, we want to offer our visitors a real Ecuadorian experience by making memories together with the communities, tasting the typical cuisine, and staying in locally run projects. Travelers can actively participate in one of the many initiatives we support, thus directly contributing to nature conservation and understanding the importance of this work. By doing so, we try to create awareness among our travelers about how tourism can have a positive impact on nature and all its inhabitants.
Nature Experience is an active member of Optur (The National Association of Receptive Tourism Operators of Ecuador) and of various nature- and bird-oriented organizations like the neotropical bird club, the French association of Ecotourism, Birds, and Conservation in Ecuador, and many others. Furthermore, we were granted the “Q” seal of Tourism Quality in 2016 by the Ministry of Tourism, guaranteeing quality, safety, and professionalism.
Our specialized and passionate multilingual experts will guide you to wildlife tours in Ecuador and will make sure you don’t miss any of the many wonders of the country. Beginning naturalists, aspiring adventurers, scientists, anyone with a good portion of curiosity is welcome to join us on the trip! We take care of everything. All you have to do is enjoy, discover, and be amazed by the nature that surrounds you.
At nature experience, we are great nature lovers and our main goal is to share this beautiful nature with others. We want to make sure that both present and future generations can be amazed by the many wonders around us. We try to have a positive impact on nature and its inhabitants based on a number of basic principles.
We have strict rules regarding group size and the approach and observation of the fauna and flora during our tours. In addition, we collect scientific information that can be used to continue to evaluate nature’s processes. During our travels, we visit local private reserves, nature conservation projects, scientific stations, in order to contribute directly to their development. And last but not least, we engage in dialogue with local inhabitants to assess their needs and create awareness that tourism can be a long-term economic and nature conservation solution.
For more than 10 years, Nature Experience has been supporting various organizations dedicated to the conservation and continuous research of Ecuador’s ecosystems. In 2016, we established ECO-system, a fund to which 3% of our annual profits go and which is used for conservation and research. In 2015 we became the winner of the ATR award (Acting for Responsible Tourism) because of our commitment to nature conservation.
