The guiding is an educational, participative, conservationist, and professional criteria used by our guides, who also have a vast experience in the management of groups.
We have 30 kilometers of trails, each one with a special name such as: Colibri trail, Magical Canopy Trail, Saladero trail, etc... The experience obtained in other places has served us as a reference to create an alternative system of trails. This will help us protect this fragile ecosystem from the influence of heavy tourism.
Ñoneno is a small Huaorani village, which we will visit on the last day of your stay. The visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the history and reality of the Huaorani Culture. It is very important for the relationship between the tourist and the community to respect the picture taking issue that has caused a lot of controversy in the world of tourism. For this reason we have an agreement with the community that picture taking will not be charged for, but that the visitors instead will help the community’s economy by buying local handicrafts. Our commitment is to transport our visitors into a mystic magical world, opened to the foreign world by naturalistic explorers that previously visited this marvellous ecosystem.
We are sure that the flexibility of our programs combined with good food, and actualized historical information, and the quality of the forest of the Huaorani Reserve will produce unforgettable memories and sensations in our visitors.
